"The definition of an addiction is anything you hide."
~ Anonymous ~
The disease of addiction is a net with small holes and catches everything around it up into its jaws. Never enough and deceit are its henchmen and endless is its grasp. Careless, insidious, manipulative, and dark, it hides behind a mask of cajoling bravado and good cheer, and it's easy to believe its innocence, because we want to believe---- but our belief can kill us. Transcendence comes from realizing the truth.
I open my eyes and see.
