“I’m not slurring.”
“I’m not spending all my money on alcohol.”
“I can walk a straight line.”
“I remember what I said last night. I just don’t want to rehash it.”
“I’m not lying. Believe what you want.“
“Everyone needs to relax. I’m not drinking too much.”
“My marriage/relationship has always been miserable.”
“Of course my kids still know I’m me when I’ve had a couple beers.”
“Yeah, I got another DUI, but those field tests are a joke.”
NONE of those things mean I’m an alcoholic!
If it walks like a duck and it quacks like a duck – – – WHAT?!
Please. Do everyone a favor – stop lying to yourself and to the rest of us. It insults everyone’s intelligence and it makes you look like a fool.
