One Sunday, as my husband and I were leaving church, we drove by a well-dressed couple walking down the sidewalk to their car.  Though I tried not to stare, something about them caught my eye as we drove by slowly.   After we passed them, I turned to my husband and said, “I believe that man is an alcoholic.”   He quickly looked in the rearview mirror at the man and then asked, “How in the world can you tell?”  I said, “Because I looked at his wife.”  I saw it on her face.  I saw it in her eyes.  I’ve seen that same look many times on the faces of friends, family, and strangers.  I know the look all too well.  I have had that same look many times in the past.  It is a look of desperation... often a look of hopelessness.   Many months after that Sunday, I met that lady and learned my assumption was right.   Addiction had taken a big toll on her.

Addiction Lies

Addiction lies.  It tells you it will bring comfort while causing unbearable pain.  It promises happiness yet sadness follows.
