Trying to tell the truth today

I lie a lot.  I do it so much I don't even realize it.  I make excuses.  I tell stories.  They're all lies.

I am trying to tell the truth now.  That's where my SA home group is the most help.  There are a couple members whom I can call up and say, "I want to be honest and tell the truth."  And they'll meet with me and I will tell everything as honestly as I can. Reading about other people's struggles with honesty and addiction really helps too. 

I have begun asking myself, "Is that really true?"  If what I'm saying is a lie, I'm sometimes able to catch myself and tell the truth.

It's hard.  Sometimes it's painful.  But I'm sleeping better than I ever have and my relationships are improving.  This stuff works, but it isn't easy.
