Addiction is Wearing the Masks: Recovery is Removing Them |
Addiction forces us to wear a mask, or present a false image. We smile when every fiber of our being is screaming in pain. We posture as friendly when all we want to do is get our dope and leave. We pretend that we have it all together when we take our children to school or football. We show fake emotions because we are so embarrassed and frightened by our authentic ones.
