Coming up over the next two days is our micro-series looking at overcoming trust issues and repairing infidelity in our relationships with others who may be still using, drinking or in recovery or those who help us as addicts, even if we are still using, drinking or in recovery.

Addicts are a perfect example of people who put a great deal of effort into justifying their unreasonable behaviours.
