  1. The excuses made by addicts, who lose friends, money, health and wellness, and self respect because of their self delusion, really are bullshit, Paul. And that’s putting it nicely, in my opinion. Thank you for this reminder.

      1. Thanks Miller, I think sometimes the loving thing to say does involve harsh words. The delusions that kept me trapped in addiction were poisonous and so could justifiably be called bullshit. Addicts are masters of excuses and always find a way to blame other people or bad luck for the mess they created. I love the metaphor of the lotus flower stuck in the muck. It is only by rising up above this that people can become free.
