Honesty In Recovery

Good Evening My Friends

When i entered into this program i thought of myself as an honest person but something happened today that made me rethink that. i allmost found myself slipping back into an old pattern. today a friend of mine asked me if i had ever stolen anything in my addiction? i was surprized by the question none of my friends had ever asked me that question when i opened my mouth to answer i allmost lied and said no. i stopped and asked myself why was i about to lie? it was because i didnt want to look bad so instead of lying i answered with the truth and it went ok my friend didnt think any diffrently about me in fact she said she respected my honesty. for the first time it felt good to be honest today i thank my hp for the courge to be honest with myself and others, and i am very gratefull that my higher power has blessed me with the abilty to chose honesty in my recovery today.

Hugs, Serenity

Much Love, Serenity

Just a few quotes... followed by my two cents...  :)

"Honesty isn’t a policy at all; it’s a state of mind or it isn’t honesty." 
— Eugene L’Hote, philosopher

“When all else fails, tell the truth.'' 
— Donald T. Regan
, American business executive, Treasury Secretary, chief of staff for President Ronald Reagan (1918-2003)

“When somebody lies, somebody loses.” 
— Stephanie Ericsson, American writer (b. 1953)

"Flattery makes friends, truth enemies."
— Spanish proverb

"Lying can never save us from another lie."
— Vaclav Havel, Czech poet and political activist, first president of post-Communist Republic (b. 1936)

Now, my almighty two cents which I learned in the rooms of AA...

"We only stay as sick as our secrets"...

"The Truth Will Set You Free... After It Pisses Ya Off!"

"A friend is not someone you feel compelled to lie to"
