You lie to everybody, yourself inclusive
This was possibly the thing that caused matters tougher than what they could've been. My fear of being criticized or driven out made me fib very often that in the end, it was more or less difficult to follow up all the things I had fabricated in order to be able to gratify my habit.

I was totally blinded by my habit that virtually nothing else is significant. So I lost my job, and my co-workers stopped trying to come across, many of my loved ones gradually got over my situation and moved on.
At this stage, words from the ones I cherished the most began to bob inside my head. I was totally drowned in the well of addiction and thought I would die alone. But then I got an epiphany to reach out my hands asking for help, thankfully there were some people waited at the top of the well.

As things were moving out of control, those that constantly supported me were paying attention to all these signs that I could not see from the start.
