I was creating damage all around me!

I started smoking pot and drinking alcohol when I was in high school. I went through what I thought was the natural progression of drug use from pot to pills, cocaine, crank and pretty much whatever I could get my hands on. This went on all throughout my twenties but I never believed I had a real problem because I had a good job, always paid my bills on time and functioned normally. That is what I believed but my family saw me differently and so did the rest of the world, I am now sure of. On into my thirties I still did not think that I had a serious problem until I hit 35 years old and a "so called" friend introduced me to heroin. Actually it was not the first time I had done heroin but when I had used it in the past it was just every now and again. Well all of a sudden I had this friend coming over every day asking me to go in on some dope with him. I had the money and he knew it, he was just using me to help him get his fix.
Then I heard about Narconon® from a family friend and decided to give it a try. I had been in many rehabs prior to Narconon and never had any success so I was ready to try something different. This program changed my life so completely that it is hard to even express how much. It also taught me how selfish I had been to think my drug use only affected me when in actuality it affected everyone around me and I understand that now.
