The Great Liars of Addiction and Mental Illness

Alcoholism and addiction promise us heaven, yet deliver nothing but misery and pain. This is what we alcoholics and addicts have known for some time, the lie that the next time will be different, and it always is — it is always worse.

There is a Christian song that I like that goes by the title, “Fear is a liar”, and the same can be said about addiction and alcoholism as well as depression and anxiety too. These things are liars and very convincing ones that want nothing good for any of us.
