today's topic-honesty



heard some really good shares at the
noon meeting today.
the consensus was, that even when we
were honest with others, we could still
deceive ourselves.

my take was, drinking and deception
go hand in hand.
with inhibitions lowered and a
conscience no where to be found,
it was simple to lie, cheat or steal.

all that mattered was the buzz;
i didn't care who i hurt or cheated.

then there was the ever present lie
of omission.

it's so much simpler today;
i don't have to remember the truth.

i can't lie to the person in the mirror.

honesty is a ticket to freedom.

wow yes. and you know how long it took after i stopped drinking, and then forgetting something, to get rid of that jolt in my heart that i had again forgotten something i did....

I am sure what you say is true - and needs saying. Often.

Drinking and Deception definitely go hand in hand. How often did we decieve ourselves we didn't have a problem...Thanks for sharing hon! (Hugs)Indigo
