Dear Dr. Puff,
First off I would like to thank the both of you. You guys have truly changed my life! A few weeks ago my life was miserable and out of control. There was so much going on and I was always so depressed, sad, and had basically just give up on life. I had hit my wits end when my roommate called me stupid. I realized that I had to do SOMETHING in order to create a happier life, before I REALLY DID DO SOMETHING STUPID!
I did some online research and found your website. I have viewed all of your shows and now I am a completely changed person. My health is better, I am off drugs, my feelings toward life and the people in it is better, and my overall appreciation and quality of life has changed TREMENDOUSLY!
I am 20 years old and I live in Boca Raton, FL. To be honest my hobbies used to be going out, doing drugs, and just numbing all my problems. But now my hobbies have changed. I love going on nature walks, I love to meditate twice a day, I love going out with my friends without getting too drunk, I love spending time with my family and cat =). Actually, this morning I found out that I had a nature trail in my neighborhood that I never even knew about!
Once again, thank you for your insight, helpfulness, and love. Keep up with your shows they truly are inspiring!
Boca Raton, FL
