Addiction feeds itself on lies. Great Lies!!!

Addiction feeds itself on lies. Great Lies!!!The disease of addiction has a mind of its own. It tells us that it does not exist and causes no problems. The ruse is that the problems are caused by other things. The question is, "Would you have had a dui if you weren't drinking?"
