We talk a lot on here about how addicted people think, feel and act…
Invariably words like, liars, thief's cheats, etc, are used by us, and about us….To define us.
I don't think such descriptions, by themselves, are fair, either to us or the
loved ones, because if we only see the "what", than we only get half the story….
In the last few years of my addiction, my life was in despair…
I felt no hope and saw my future as utterly bleak.
I saw myself as hopeless and didn't care if I lived or died.
I was a lost soul, and no one had a clue as to how low and pathetic I felt about myself.
Sometimes we steal because we are desperate, lie because we are scared and cheat because we are broken.
