When its obvious, concealing and denial will not do rather it will only worsen the situation. I have seen some documentaries and shows about different addiction a countless times in television , featuring people who have been lost and life was on messed up because of their vices. Each of them has each story to tell and share. Some were not lucky enough to overcome the effect while others regret and are willing to be rescued and help.
It's nice to see people who are in bondage before of their vices then came one day to testify how they got saved inside alcohol rehab treatment centers after accepting the fact that they really need help.Imagine if they keep believing themselves that they are fine, despite exhibiting signs of addiction.Gladly, number of being saved is increasing, very inspiring. It only shows how acceptance is better than denial, it makes a big difference, it saves life.
