Growing Up

I don't know if it is lying or what but growing up in an alcoholic family, I often had to make excuses for others behaviour, I learned that sometimes it was easier to make up a white lie rather than tell the truth.

Well, I hope you have discovered some valuable resources like Adult Children of Alcoholics(books/groups) and Codependent No more by Melodie Beattie-very good book. It can be life changing. Good luck!!!!

thanks, sweet

Lies just produce more lies. They'll never end. Best to just say the truth and live with the consequences.

thanks for your comment

you know i grew up with a dad who drank. and i found out that covering up the problem was no good..i did it for years and justafied his drinking.. but when i got beat because of an alcoholic husband . there was no lie too cover the damage . so i learned the hard way to lie or cover up for the desises is no good no mater what
