3 Biggest Absurd Lies Drunks Tell Themselves
Alcoholics perpetually lie so they can keep drinking. Here’s 3 of the biggest lies Alcoholics tell themselves.
Post contains graphic, blunt honesty that may offend you.
Alcohol is still the number one cause for domestic violence and crime related reports.
Alcohol poisons the fabric of our entire existence and ruins families.
But, it’s worse than that.
Alcohol lies to the user and tells them: “It’s okay to do what you do. You need me.”
Here’s the first lie:
“I don’t have a problem.”
*I have a problem driving blacked out.
There were so many nights I would leave a party or bar and not remember driving home. One time I rammed into another car and kept going. I ran three red lights to get home and hide out.
*I have a problem cursing at you.
Many memories I have of past girlfriends were riddled with tears and unwanted emotions. I caused a lot of needless suffering because of being drunk. These girls were trying to communicate with me, but my ears were closed by the lies of alcohol.
*I have a problem drinking as soon as I wake up.
I found out that you could get rid of a hangover by drinking again. This belief led me to drink all day and at 4 am when the tremors from alcohol withdrawal would wake me up, and at 7 am when I was shaking again and had to work.
*I have a problem completely changing my types of friends to hang out with bums.
Having friends who had healthy lives became awkward. I needed to find “lesser” people who drank as much as me so I could feel better about myself. Bums became coming over to my house and we lined the floor with empty beer cans.
*I have a problem urinating in the bed.
At first I was shocked that I pissed the bed, but then it became normal. I changed the sheets and sprayed Lysol on the mattress so I wouldn’t smell it the next night.
Second Lie: “I feel like staying home today.”
*I can’t leave because I’m too sick.
The first year with a girlfriend was great. I held it together to go out. But later, I drank more and was sick if I wasn’t constantly slamming a beer. I decided not to go out until I was afraid to go out.
*I can’t leave because I’m shaking with withdrawals.
The more I drank, the more my body needed it. If I didn’t consume the exact amount my body needed, I would shake. People can die from these withdrawals and have heart-attacks like I did.
*I can’t leave because I have so much anxiety that I’m scared of people.
Alcohol withdrawal not only taxes you physically, but also mentally. If you’re used to being intoxicated for long periods of time, you will feel anxiety without the buzz. Alcohol leaving your body is like feeling like someone broke up with you and you’re all alone.
Third lie: “I Love myself.”
*I hate myself and everything I do.
Secretly under this “feel good” buzz of alcohol where life felt great, the reality was that I hated my existence and everything I had done. Alcohol gave me a few seconds of reprieve from the horror of a man I had created. Alcohol distorted my thinking to where I could tolerate my existence without killing myself.
*I hate you because you love yourself.
People that had a life and did things with others gave me huge jealousy. I had a heart somewhere deep inside, but it was covered with layers of guilt, shame, and deep despair. I wanted you to shut up and become non-existent in my presence so I could die in silence. We co-existed merely so I could fuel my addiction.
*I don’t care if I kill someone in a “hit and run” because that would silence my suffering.
After years of steadily drinking more and doing worse things, alcohol became a game of death. Bad situations were almost exciting, because it made “order” that people relied on, “disorder.” I became the monster of chaos and attracted drama because we reflect into others what we are.
I’m not happy to admit these things and most of that happened over seven years ago. It’s unbelievable to think of the insanity I was led into through alcohol.
Millions of people have stories like these and if you’re not alcoholic yourself, you probably know one or live with one. It’s crazy to think that alcohol is legal in America. It is accepted more than marijuana or even psychedelics.
Psychedelics are being researched heavily again, which hasn’t been the case since the Sixties, because they are finding that their effects are helping people with anxiety and depression.

Almost every bad experience I had in my life probably was influenced by alcohol. I remember being about 4 years old and being with my parents on a wharf on the water in Long Beach, California.
A man walked by and he was talking strange and pointing to his forearm. It truly shocked me and I asked my dad what was wrong with that man. My dad said, “He’s just drunk.”
I can’t believe I became the same man I was so deathly scared of as a boy. I walked around my little town as a drunk, just like that man.
In fact, I was worse.
There’s an underlying evil in alcohol also.
I have seen plenty of people who seemed possessed on TV and in my own life who were drunk.
I spoke to the police one time after I fell and hit my head on the cement sidewalk. They asked if I was on other drugs because I was speaking so strangely, not slurring like a drunk, but coherently insane.
I was only drunk.
I was only drunk when I remember talking to a cat for an hour at my friend’s security job at a mill. There were tons of stray cats around and one happened to hang out with my friend.
So, drinking just doesn’t get you drunk. If you have a preposition of being spiritually sensitive, you could attract demon spirits and alcohol allows them to enter you.
No joking here.
Why am I telling you all this?
For one, it allows me to be completely vulnerable and honest with you, which makes me feel alive and connected with you.
Two, I hope I can help at least one person who reads this to stop drinking.
We live in a world that is becoming divided. We have the side of people who are heading towards some kind of evolution, whether that be through meditation, mindfulness, and living peacefully and seeking higher consciousness.
Then, you have the other group who are mesmerized by the idiocy of TV and the media, and want nothing more than to undermine themselves by overeating, using drugs and alcohol, glorifying violence, being racist, and being overly opinionated and just being low-vibration.
Science is understanding more each day that we are all interconnected, and that animals are just as intelligent as we are. They just think differently than we do.
