Yes, actually – I lied – to others – and to myself!
There are probably at least 100 different types of alcoholics out there.
And everyone has their own way of dealing with it – or just ignore it and move on – and continue to drink. Many people manage to continue drinking their entire life, despite their dependence, and making it work …… There is no clear solution to it all. Everything is so individual.
BUT – One thing us alcoholics have in common is that we are very good at lying to ourselves – and to others – to keep on drinking.
When I realized my alcohol problems, I promised myself to “cut down” on the drinking.
– What a lie !!!
