In the batty circular logic of American Twelve Step programs, defensively denying you're an addict is rock-solid proof that you are, in fact, an addict. Insisting that you have a right to be defensive since you're defending yourself against a charge that isn't true just digs you in deeper. Denying something tat isn't true only proves you're in denial, and all addicts are denial until they admit they're addicts, at which point they're in recovery.
