Addicted, me? Never!
Denial is a common trait among addicts. It’s all part of the general atmosphere of dishonesty that an addict is surrounded with, dishonesty with themselves and those they are closest to most of the time. Other traits include:
- Disappearing into yourself, withdrawing from the world
- Lack of caring about anything anymore. Total apathy
- Constant craving. What you’re addicted to is consuming more and more of your day, all day every day. You can no longer function.
