ONE OF THE MORE FRUSTRATING ASPECTS OF ADDICTION IS THAT, EVEN WHEN AN ADDICT HAS MADE A DECISION TO TELL THE TRUTH, OR TO ASK FOR HELP, BETWEEN THEIR BRAIN AND THEIR LIPS THE MESSAGE IS HIJACKED AND OUT COMES A LIE INSTEAD.

Even when the truth is actually easier to tell, and not associated with consequences, many times, an addict cannot state a simple truth. Also difficult to understand, is when an addict will lie about topics or events which are totally unrelated to his/her addiction. Charles Tadros, M.D June 18, 2021 Saint Louis, Missouri

IT IS NOT THAT ADDICTIVE AND HABIT-FORMING SUBSTANCES ARE NOT FUN OR DO NOT WORK. IT IS THAT USING THEM COMES AT TOO GREAT OF A COST, NOW AND IN THE FUTURE.

ALL FORMS OF ADDICTION AND MENTAL ILLNESS LEAVE AN INDELIBLE MARK THAT CAN DISABLE US AS WELL AS ENRICH OUR LIVES AND ENRICH THE LIVES OF OTHERS.

You may just become a good EGG ( Empathic, Grateful, and develop Grit). Charles Tadros M.D. April 20, 2021 St Louis, Missouri
