  • Fallacies
    There are some common fallacies of thought that keep us trapped. They can be broken down into categories of denial and admittal, to self and to others. These thought fallacies are common for all abuses, simply substitute "food", "drugs", "TV", or whatever for "alcohol". DON'T believe them, and don't let others believe them either!
     

    Denying to self

    Fallacy #1:

    1. If I deny an alcohol problem, I can achieve my goals, enjoy life, be successful

    Admitting to self

    Fallacy #2:

    1. If I have an alcohol problem, I am weak
    2. If I am weak, I must be inferior
    3. If I am inferior, I am worthless and can't be respected, valued, loved (etc.)

    Denying to others

    Fallacy #3:

    1. If I deny an alcohol problem, I can successfully hide it from others
    2. If I can hide my alcohol problem from others, I don't have a problem

    Admitting to others

    Fallacy #4:

    1. If I admit to an alcohol problem, I am perceived as weak
    2. If I am perceived as weak, I won't be respected, valued, loved (etc.)
