liar

As an alcoholic the first word that pops out of my mouth is a lie. Actually I am not an alcoholic I have been lying to you guys. See that was a lie, its just natural for a person like me. I use to lie to cover my tracks and to protect my beloved alcohol and pills. I even got to a point of believing my own lies. The difference now is that I got honest with god and myself. Once I start to lie to myself again, I will be dead.

For me, the existence of Step 10 prevents many untruths from being verbalized.

Lies, the language alcoholics are most fluent in.

When I used to talk (read lie), I would always hear "LIAR, LIAR, PANTS ON FIRE!!!" In my mind. I am so grateful to be able to live an honest life today/

The lies to myself are the tricky ones because I'm not usually aware of them. Denial's a real bitch to keep on top of.

Sometimes I think back on some of the lies I told and for a brief minute I actually have to say, "Did that really happen?" I lied even when it was just as easy to tell the truth -- classic, I know.
I'm working on it.
