Suboxone Doctor in Miami: Dr. Mitchell’s Clinic

The Lies, Stupid
by Dr. Robert Ben Mitchell, D.O. - 786-262-5750

In 1992, Bill Clinton’s strategist James Carville famously stated, “The economy, stupid,” when stating the most important issue in the presidential campaign. In recovery, we have a similar statement: The lies, stupid.

Drugs don’t have a reason to kill: they’re inanimate objects. But, what does kills in addiction are the lies: the lies we tell ourselves every day. The lies that keep us from seeing and feeling what is happening to us, our lives, and those who care (or used to care) about us. Lies like:

I can handle this.
I can do what I want.
I don’t need any help.
I don’t need to follow any rules.
I know what I’m doing.
I know what’s best for me.
I have plenty of time.
I have everything I need.
I have everything under control.
I just want to get rid of these feelings.
I just want to find an easy way out.
I just want to be someone else.
I just need one more (fill in the blank).
I just need to be left alone.
I just need you to stop bothering me.
I’m not responsible for any of this.
I’m not doing anything wrong.
I’m not hurting you.
I’m okay.
I’m not going to die.

And the list goes on - until you do die.
