Dear Alcohol, This is Why I Said Goodbye To You A Goodbye Letter To Alcohol

I’ve always feel a bit odd about writing unsent letters in therapy. I find the process artificial, goodbye alcohol letter and sometimes inhibiting. I’d happily drink the night away, and you’d leave me to rot.

As the years rolled on, you were there almost daily. You were there throughout my wedding and my early days of marriage. You saw me have our firstborn child, then my second born…and continued to be with me all the time. You should write a goodbye letter to close that chapter in your life. Because it had a hold of you for so long, it deserves a proper goodbye. Alcohol was my lover and I had to say goodbye.

Good Bye Letter to Alcohol

When my life fell apart, you were there. You soothed me and showed me the way to the oblivion I so desperately needed. You helped me find a way out of myself. You made everything a little more exciting, and I loved you for it. You were hanging around with my friends and me, and we just seemed to work well together.

We drink rough coffee, we tell stories about your and we laugh. We share the turbulent parts of our lives with you and we cope. Shiiiit, I COPE, because you’re always there.,lingering around like a vampire expecting and invitation in. The fucking wild part is that you’re an element of me, You live in me. But you’re there, so I have to accept it or be damned. Damned to be walking wounded and back in my disease without taking a drink.

The fact that I couldn’t experience friendship without you. The way you told me you cured my insomnia, but your “cure” kept me awake till 2 AM till the bottle was empty. Thanks to you, I was able to retreat from the pain I was causing myself on a daily basis. You helped me find even more ways to hide—the sex, drugs, and rock n roll lifestyle was a welcome pit for me to fall into. You promised me you would help me be ok.

Alcohol,We have been together for such a long time. I first got involved with you aged 14 when I remember buying 4 beers with my cousin. Think of alcohol as your partner. You see that your relationship is becoming toxic and you want to end it before things get worse. In the years since we split I have discovered other things that have made me happy.

Paul’s letter to alcohol is his break-up letter to alcohol. He shares the lies, pain, and broken promises he can no longer endure at alcohol’s hands. He also lets alcohol know the hope he holds for a future without it. I am now not only saying goodbye, but stay the fuck away from me and my family. Stay away from my life and my memories. I am stronger now than I ever was with you and you are a dangerous one to be around.

I learned I am no longer prepared to tolerate. By showing me who I don’t want to be, you showed me who I do want to be. If there is one thing I have learned in the years since we broke up it is that regret is pointless and harmful.
