Addiction does not allow anybody to escape

Vishal

Vishal- The weakest link in the chain

I looked at everything as cause of my unhappiness except alcohol, heroin, cocaine, weed, crack, ecstasy, magic mushrooms and ciggrates.

When I turned 13 years old life suddenly became very difficult for me. Feelings began to emerged that I did not understand restlessness, irritation, sadness and discontentment crept into my life and I felt alone. In just       life did not make any sense to me at all. I needed to prove to the world, to my family, to my peers that I am good enough, worthy enough and part of this world. My friends had a great ambition of few many an engineer I followed them blindly and started to work hard to crack IIT entrance which I was supposed to give when I would be 18. I belonged getting into a reputed engineering college would add meaning to my life. By God’s grace and sheer dedication I entered into a very good engineer College in India.

But only god knew why I was left disenchanted when I entered the college. Because the loneliness in me rather than disappearing it become a crept. I did not know what to do. To my rescue some boys from north-east were smoking weed and drinking codeine cough syrup. They offered me and I immediately grab it without even enquiring what it, what effect it has.  As if something in me was so thirsty and it needed it. The minute I had their substances in me. All my is obtain (which I used to feel acute when I saw other people laughing, smiling and playing).

Misery all disappeared immediately. I looked around me. I felt one with the world. I had a euphoric experience which I can’t put in the worlds.

Since then, to chase that first experience, I had travelled countries, tried everything, get hooked on then everything, get hooked on anything and everything. But that’s just experience never repeated again.

I persisted 14 long years under the illusion that the high would repeat itself.

But Naah………………!! Instead I was being pushed in to abyss of loneliness and frustration.

Till the time I got my treatment here at hermitage on 2009 and began to follow the recovery program here in the hermitage. With extreme dedicated  and persistence I used to chase drugs and alcohol.
With gods grace shearing on me and with the fellow ship and gooce sponsorship, I am beginning to have such greater experience in my life, that the worst days in recovery are far better than the best highs I had in addiction.

HERMITAGE brought me back from the DEAD...

It is difficult to explain how I feel about THE HERMITAGE. It is a place which has given me a SECOND LIFE...

Dr Bhatia and team cleared my doubts that drinking alcohol is not a defect of character or a habit...The patient is drinking not because he is immoral or it is lack of will power. He drinks because he has a disease .He explained this scientifically .Dr.Bhatia is a humble and generous doctor who calmly listens to your woes, doubts ; past experiences and guides .He simply provides a ray of light in the darkness to the patient and in family membes lives...thankyou Dr.Bhatia.

Addiction does not allow anybody to escape

A person addicted to drugs finds himself quite isolated and alone. His family and friends alienate him. As he struggles with his addiction his relations are destroyed. The excitement which lures one into drugs slowly becomes a constant circle of carelessness, criminal activity, and numbness

Alcoholism is a condition where a person has a physical dependence on alcohol, craves it and has withdrawal symptoms if he or she tries to quit. Punjab has a drug problem like other states of India. Drug traffickers make their way into the area and make the state a hub of their operations.

It took only one drag of smack for jasbeer

It took only one drag of smack for Jasbeer to realize that he had found a new way to feel comfortable in his life. He was no longer in any doubt, fear or worry. He became unconcerned about the trouble he was experiencing at work with his father and his wife at home.
