“I smoked up 10 joints a day” – Here is how I changed my life

Drug Addiction

Am Mohan (name changed) 24 years old male from Bangalore. I was born in a small village and moved to this huge and immense jungle of buildings so-called Bangalore. Though I was a teetotaler while relocated here, but soon turned up to be a social drinker and baptized as a drug addict due to three things which I used as an excuse for my drug inhale
– Work stress
– Family situation
– Peer pressure

What triggered me:
While every one of my friends was smoking up in my room, I was gazing at them. My inner speech narrated “if anyone is pushing me to take these drugs, I should say ‘No’ for 2 times and 3rd time- Its way to go”
As my wish advanced with a success and soon monthly once matured as 2 weeks once, and at last it mellowed weekly 4 times. Later I sorted all the scenes in a chronological order. The tragic truth was shocking it was me and no one else, who is the reason behind for my obsession.There was a time when i sniffed more than 10 times a day on the weekends.

That guilt moment:
I kept my addiction as a secret but one of my friend revealed to my family once he witnessed my withdrawal indications. Yes! I tried to stop my drug practice but all my attempts went in vain. When I tend to take action on my addiction it keeps increasing due to craving. My best friend Suresh (name changed) came to know my difficulties. And boom! My family came to my apartment that was my doomed moment of intact life. Soon then they took me to a rehab center nearby forcibly.

Is that how rehab will operate:
I can feel all the miscellaneous reactions on my body starting from guilt, loss of self-esteem, inferiority complex, melancholy, anxiety, hyperactivity, alpha, beta, gamma, etc… etc.. etc…  I was witnessing the people who were talking and walking freely in and around the rehab center but how? Whatever I saw in the movies and heard from my peers and friends was wrong.

Truly, at that very point, I came to know that a rehab is a place one can find the loss of themselves. Who I thought they would beat me relentlessly for their bad mood,  inject me simply, gives me shock treatments just for their fun was completely wrong.

Am very much gratified to those who handled me for the treatments and therapies. I still wonder how they would maintain and balance both friendliness and professional ethics. There are no words that match rather than ‘Thank you’ for the psychiatrist, counselors, support staffs and securities who showed love, support, and care which made me to cope with the recovery.

I believed that one day I should be in the stage and telling my successful recovery story to the affected people like me. And soon I will be doing that. These 90 days treatment made me a person with full of  impulse and self-confidence who is ready to face the civilized society with clean hands
One step forward, all it needs:
Recovery is a marathon and it needs endurance, resilience, and willpower. There is no one in the creation who can help you with a full heart, but except you. Because you know your pain and struggles. It’s time to think about your well-being, family, friends, well-wishers and most importantly your future. As you can see how conditions can make pure soul into a “jar of dirt” and am an illustration of it. I had my parents and a good friend to take the decisive action. But trust me it is an unpleasant moment for the parents to see their child in such a condition. We are grown-ups and we know what’s right and what’s wrong. It’s better to contact the help of a good rehab center to get back the quality of life and live the moment with full-hearted betterment. Reach Cadabam’s for a productive life +91 96111 94949
