ello, my name is Devin Carley, and here is a little bit about myself:
The best story I can tell you about myself is actually a continuation of the success that I had in Scientology.
I bought the book Dianetics on the street from a guy who was out selling them.
I went home and started reading this book just to find out what was so darn important that this guy was so persistent. I read the first 150-200 pages and was fascinated by what I had read it was very common sense and I started to think that maybe help was possible, to some. But this of course didn't include me because I had no problems. (Being so drugged all the time kept me in that frame of mind.) I stopped reading the book and went on with my usual routine.
I met a girl and fell madly in love with her she was into the same things as me. (Drugs, Drinking, Staying out late.) And boy could she keep up. When I went to bed at night she wanted to stay up and keep going. This was pretty normal in the life style of a druggie, so I didn't pay much attention until we had been dating for nearly a month. I became aware of the fact that she never slept at night and when she was so exhausted that she fell asleep she would almost immediately wake screaming and terrified. I tried to sooth and to help as well as tried to find out what was causing her horrible nightmares. I eventually became so concerned that I went rifling through some boxes to find a book I had purchased six months before called Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health. I was certain that I had read about such things and that this book had the answers. I found the book and looked inside for a number to call or something so that I could get help for my girlfriend. I had gone for over a week myself with no sleep trying to comfort her and I was certain that if she did not sleep soon she would die. I called the local Mission and made an appointment to see someone the next day. When I got there I had decided that I had to do something anything to help. I was shown the Dianetics auditor course. I was then taken back to the course room to start and the supervisor took one look at me and one thing. "There is no drinking 24 hours before course and absolutely no drugs. Are you going to have a problem with that?" I was stunned this man was so nice and matter of fact about what his rules were that I had to stop and think.
I was faced with the decision to quite my own drug habit to save the life of the girl I loved or continue my drug use and hope that my girl somehow get better on her own. I told the man that I would quit and do the course. This man had no idea the magnitude of decision he just asked me to make. He had no clue about my girlfriend or her situation. The way he asked me was so straightforward and so pleasantly put I never once thought about lying to him.
It has been ten years and I have never touched a drug since.
