“You’re only as sick as your secrets” goes a saying in Alcoholics Anonymous. And they should know: one of the hallmarks of alcoholism—of any addiction, really—is deception. Addicts deceive others to cover up their addiction and themselves to deny they have one. Most alcoholics think that no one can smell alcohol on their breath. They think they’re functioning at work when it’s clear that their inebriated. Alcoholics think they’re fooling everyone, and more often than not, look to take their frustrations out on the person that’s telling them they have a problem, instead of focusing on the truth of the message.
Most alcoholics will also think you’re just nagging if you’re a close friend or spouse and will attempt to deflect all the blame on you, instead of asking themselves “Could I actually have a problem and be a lush?” So stop avoiding that awkward conversation and let The Incognito Help tell someone they need to stop boozing and doing a dugs, so you don’t have to personally be the one to tell them.
If you’re not familiar with the service, The Incognito Help Line, is an anonymous message provider that will personally call and deliver any message to anyone with the promise that it will not be traced back to you. As the number one professional anonymous messaging service, The Incognito Help Line knows that sometimes its easier to let someone say things for you, (which is why The Incognito Help Line was created- for people & situations just like this). It’s one thing if someone gets a random phone call or text when they can’t validate where it comes from or if it’s meant to be taken seriously or as a joke. But if they get a personal phone call, email or letter from The Incognito Help Line, they’ll know the message is serious and isn’t a joke, and it’s that personal touch that makes all the difference.
At the end of the day, people too often love to shoot the messenger instead of just focusing in on the message. Yet remember, while this is not an easy job, things only get worse over time, so the sooner something is said, the better. Good luck!
