"If it doesn't make sense, it shouldn't. (Don't make it make sense.)" - Nicki, mom of teen addict
- When someone is actively drinking it is often hard to separate the truths from the lies. Confusion is a big red flag. Possible indicators that they are lying are if you find yourself mentally "filling in the holes" of their stories, reaching to make sense out of things they do, or thinking "huh?" to an explanation they give you.
