Lol I love this thread...
Here goes; I am on my way home. Just going to get a slurpee, want one? I am done with this, I'll never go out and do that again. I promise not to take anymore money from the bank without telling you first. I am sorry.

"being with you is what will keep me from getting high"

Good grief, I had forgotton how many empty promises I had been given! Though circumstances may be different, I will bet we have heard every one of these ourselves.

Sadly, the addict thinks we are too stupid to know better!

I remembered another one, a HUGE one from that number one seller that Oprah made famous, James Frey's "A Million Little Pieces". James Frey who made these outrageous claims, made us believe that he was an addict and alcoholic when in fact, his book was a lie. Is this a complete 360 on our beliefs of addicts? I mean someone who's not an addict lieing and saying they are??!!??

His story was so very compelling and well written that you are instantly drawn in. Those who are addicts can relate to everything he wrote.

I even had him sign a book for me after a very large crowd came to see him talk about his experiences with addiction, and listen to his warnings about drug use.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(I wound up selling it on ebay for,,,,,,, 14.00!) Isn't that amazing? Even though he had been exposed as a liar, people still wanted the book. It wasn't much for the signed book, but gees, how can you know someone is lieing and taking your money like that and want to buy anything they have to offer?

He's exposed! So what does he do? He writes another book and sells the crap out of it too!!!

I don't get it.

Duet-yep the best one. They do run out of lies-cannot only tell them over and over-we get it-not a stupid as they thought and they are not as smart as they talk. AH could not possibly come up with a new one. A good post-made me smile-had not heard some lies before.

Once they fix my back, I can get off these pills. I just want to be fixed.

and a VERY OBVIOUS sign that he just didn't "get" his 30 day stint in rehab...

I CAN DRINK ALCOHOL. I DON'T HAVE A PROBLEM WITH IT. I AM ADDICTED TO PILLS.

I've been spared a lot of these (because my best friend is too "hella cool" to talk to me anymore)... but here's a few that I got:

"Don't worry, I've got it under control"

"I sweartagod, I wasn't high when that happened"

"I'll call you right back, k?" ... (days, weeks, months,..)

"I don't know what's wrong, but I'm going to figure out why I'm acting like this. Please be patient with me" ... (hint: maybe it has something to do with all the drugs you're doing).


Ah, but all that was ages ago. I haven't heard from her in over a year. Turns out, the problem wasn't the drugs... it was ME. I wasn't supportive of her new lifestyle, apparently. Go figure. *sigh*
