Famous Last Words (from my addict) v2.0

Back in 2007, Lovestoomuch (still wondering what happened to her, she was amazing!) started a thread she titled 'Famous Last Words'.

It became kind of a 'round-robin' with lots of people contributing things that they had heard from their addict.

It was a HUGE eye-opener for me, because my XAH said so many totally insane things to me that I would never have believed that anyone else had ever heard them. I was wrong.

I mentioned it in a post last night, and some were searching for it. Seems it must have been lost when the server crashed a couple of years ago.

So, for those who didn't get to see it~let's do it again!

I might be a little rusty; I haven't had the pleasure of living with an addict for a few years. But I think I can come up with some of the more striking examples from my past.

Here goes:


"If you treated me better, I wouldn't use drugs"

((Duet)) - great thread!! Just to let you know lovestoomuch is just fine I've got her on my FB and when I get back to it, will let her know you asked about her

Oh, and MY favorite was from the XABF who said "oh, that's right...I'm just an addict, just toss me to the curb". Funny, since I, too am an A, I just chose recovery, which I informed him off, as I hung up the phone (and refused to bail him out of jail!!).

Hugs and prayers,

Amy

"If you just bail me out this once, I will go to meetings and sign up for rehab and do anything you tell me to do."

Those promises lasted 2 hours after the bailout, then it was off to the dope man.

Ann, I was just going to add that one. I heard that two days ago when I saw a pile of tiny ziplock bags with designs on them in my son's floor.

"They're not mine"

"I don't know where they came from....."

"Some guy just gave them to me....(for no apparent reason)"

All said within about 60 seconds....

Oh no, I didn't steal your credit card and charge $1,200 for phone sex, you must have done it and forgotten about it!

I was out doing drugs last night (really?), and, someone stole my bike! And guess what? When I came home this morning your bike was stolen too! I wonder how the thief knew where we lived? Duh!

I am going down to the corner to buy cigarettes...he returned 3 days later...ran out of money and dope....Oh and cigarettes too...can you lend me $4.00? Yah right, I'll be doing it!

I keep those pills in a faucet handle because it is illegal to have them just laying out in my truck console.

The reason I lie to you is because you want me to tell you the truth...if you wouldn't ask me for the truth, I wouldn't have to lie to you! Huh?

The reason I don't have any money is because the government takes out too much from my paycheck, it's not because I do drugs, I am only spent $500 last week on coke! Right, I've got it!

"I only got the DUI because I drove the main road instead of the back road I always take if I'm drunk"

"What needle? It must be old from back when I did dope"

"If you wouldn't be looking there" ("There" being on the bathroom floor) "you would never have found the empty bag and be flipping out"

"I have no idea where your credit card went"
