Denial: A person's refusal to admit or accept that he or she has an addiction problem
Living in the Lie…Cont’
Those of us with addiction issues are extremely good at practicing denial. We can make excuses, place blame and concoct all sorts of answers and stories to convince ourselves that we do not have a problem.
In our denial state, we fabricate the most ridiculous tales in an attempt to mask our behavior. We place blame on anything and everything from the baby to our boss, from the vehicles to the weather, from the police officer to the laws, from our spouse to our parents. This list goes on forever.
We lie at times when the truth would fit better. That’s what denial is-living in the lie. And we are very good at it.
Sadly, some of us don’t get a grip on our denial until something drastic happens. We call this hitting bottom. Why we have to bottom out before we get a clue is not actually known. But it seems that that is what it takes for the majority of us to “wake up”. That’s if we are blessed enough to realize that we’ve hit bottom.
Unfortunately, there are many in our ranks that never do- they are either in the grave, in the pen or in the asylum.
Denial is a very dangerous symptom of our illness. Getting it under foot is a real matter of life or death for us.
Join us next time as we continue the subject of denial.
Reminder: Visit our website (…….) and click the “12 Steps” tab and review the Steps that we will be discussing soon. While you are there read over the glossary of terms that we are using.
Until then ….. be sure to tell a friend about us.
Thanks for visiting us – come back soon.
