Life Before and After Drug Addiction
Sanjay got introduced to drugs during his college times. In an interview, recalling that whole episode, Sanjay said, “Someone asked me to try it once, I tried it and then it remained with me for the next nine years of my life. I always used to be in my world. From heroin to cocaine, I tried everything that was there in the books. I used to sniff and take pills. In the last year before my treatment started, I even used to inject drugs into my body."
He has successfully overcome this addiction lately but this is indeed one of the darkest chapters of his life. Talking about that one incident that changed his life, Sanjay said, “One day I had taken heroin and went to sleep. Woke up after some time and was feeling very hungry so I asked my servant to get me something to eat. Seeing me he started crying and said that 'baba you've woken up after two days.' When I heard this I was shocked. I went and saw myself in the mirror. My face had that drenched look and I knew it that if I don't stop myself now I will probably die. So I went to dad and told him to save me. He sent me to a well-known hospital and soon after that I was sent to America to a rehabilitation center."
He underwent a lot of mental trauma all this while and decided to not go to that path again ever in his life. He is now living a drug-free and peaceful life. He started to focus on his fitness to overcome to regain mental and physical soundness.
