Question TOPIC: Do You Have A Dirty Little Secret? You're The Only One That Has To Know.

Do you have a dirty little secret to share?

No one but you has to know.

I can eat a dozen donuts about now.

I actually have no secrets at all.
I have always been pretty open with myself.
There isnt anything my grams and most of my family doesnt know about me.
Right down to the most degrading things I have done in addiction.
Your only as sick as your secrets..

Not anymore.. most of mine were hidden in the closet, under the sink, in my underwear drawer, behind books on the bookshelf, in the freezer, or in my purse.

whew... it's nice to have a clutter free house

Me, my sponsor and God. Those are the only people/entities who know the few secrets that I was most ashamed of. I had to get rid of those. Once I told I was able to let them go. What a wonderful feeling.

LOL! Great topic. After coming out of the closet and dealing with addiction, my secrets seem pretty harmless... a few :

I give Whiskas Treats to my parents' cat when I visit once a week. That cat sure loves me, and my mother is soooo jealous. It's funny.

I always check caller ID before answering the phone.

People comment on "Matt smell"- in a good way, lol. I have a secret concoction of liquid stuff that I spray on my clothes after they've been laundered.

Although my panic disorder is in remission, I always keep a tab of sublingual Klonopin hidden in my wallet.

I'm gay and I love rugby!

I've kept a journal since I was 10 - it's absolutely off limits to everyone.

If I had any 'dirty little secrets' and told them here, everyone here would know! Now why would I tell my secrets to the whole cyber-world?

I'll give you a clue: my secrets have nothing to do with doughnuts!

Sure I do....sometimes.

When I don't go before I step in and the water is warm and....well....as long as the drain's not clogged up, it's all good.

I went to a Brian Adams mini concert at the
fair grounds many moons ago during my
drinking career. My girl friend and i drank
and drank as i tried to get the guy behind
the counter to give me the shirt off his
back.....it was the one i wanted.

Hours later and no t-shirt, my friend and
I headed to the car.

Boy we needed to pee.

We were so smashed and just didnt have
the energy to walk back to the bathrooms
so we just peed in our jeans, hopped in the
car and drove home.

Who cared. Not us.

We sure had fun tho.

Your only as sick as your secrets
I did not have many secrets, but I did have one that I held on to for over 35 years, it brought me a great deal of guilt and shame, I was 12 or 13 and it ate at me a lot, in my 4th step inventory I wrote it all down except that!!!! Well I sat down with my sponsor to do my 5th step, the first thing he asked me was "Martin, what is your deepest, darkest secret?" I told him, and as I told him the guilt and the shame of it all was lifted, some how by getting it out there I was able to see that what I had done was not all that bad, and considering how young I was I knew then that I was surely not the only person to have ever done that. At that point I was almost totally rid of that guilt and shame, the full freedom came in step 9 as I made amends for that, the person I thought I had so deeply wronged laughed at me and said "Man no harm was done, it never bothered me, I can not beleive you felt bad about that, especially after all these years! I was FREE!!!!!

Secrets? No thanks, not worth it, I do have plenty of things that are not for the world to know, but they are known to those who need to know, because they were part of it or affected by it.

I do not need to let you all know about me getting cookie crumbs in the bed almost every night, that is just none of your business, you all have no need to know the number of chocolate chip cookies I can eat in one sitting in bed!
