This sentence by L. Ron Hubbard is the first one I read when I arrived at Narconon: “An addict does not want to be an addict” Honestly? I did not understand it at the time. It looked a lot like what I heard from others: I am not toxic. I will quit when I want.
The word “objective” means having to do with physical objects and outward things, not one’s internal thoughts and feelings. An objective procedure is, therefore, one that helps a person take his attention off himself and put it outward on his environment. As objectives bring the person out of the past and into the present, they constitute a vital step of the Narconon Program.
As students progress through the Narconon Program, their view of the world changes. They become their true selves, they see things as they really are and they are no longer hung up on past situations and problems.
This is the beginning of a new chapter in my life. My success is that I’m a lot more focused on the problems that I’m facing in present time and I am here, ready to confront any situation with no distractions.
I was 17 years old when I tried my first drug. I was leading a normal teenage life. My school days were like everyone else’s…
When I arrived at Narconon Europe on the 12th of March, I was weak, had no self-confidence and I was drowning in my own lies. I was exhausted. I had hurt a lot of important people in my life. I was lost. Then I began my program. In withdrawal, I felt how weak my body was and how lost I was mentally.
When I started the New Life Detoxification , I never thought that by the end of it, I would feel so good. People told me that I would have good results, but I didn’t believe them. I just didn’t see the value of doing a sauna program.
After spending many days, nights, months and years on drugs trying to figure out whether I’m having some mental disorders caused by chemical imbalances in my brain or unhappy childhood or having some incurable disease causing my drug addiction, I finally realized I was totally normal before starting with drugs and most likely will be OK if I stopped taking them.
I thought I would never get away from drugs. I thought I would not be anyone without drugs and would not be able to do anything without them. When I came here I could not breathe through my nose and my face was completely destroyed by the cocaine.
I arrived at the Narconon program , thanks to my family’s guidance and support, and it’s because of their efforts that I can write this story to you, the future Narconon students of the world. Finishing this program was not easy for me.
