A lying tongue hates those it hurts,
and a flattering mouth works ruin.
STEP 6 Were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character
In the aftermath of addiction we will discover that we were the ones hurt the most by our lies .
Through the steps we will have to figure out why we hate ourselves so much . If you really think about it that is why we use ,too mask the pain we are in . Telling yourself that you have it under control and you can handle this is flattery and lieing that could lead you into a premature death or a long term jail sentence. Do you want to get better ? Do want to get sober ? Honesty with yourself is where you need to start !
Galatians 5 : 1
It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.
