I am pretending that my disease (alcohol) wrote me a letter. It said very nasty things. so I am writing back.
I’ve been waiting to here from you. Where the f#*k have you been? It’s been so long… you actually gave me a Heart Attack! Since you’re so cunning, treating me like a baffle plate, & you don’t have the guts to show your face (Mr. Powerful), here is the answer to YOUR letter.
To me you’re like The Afghanistan War. You come into my life with a purpose, then you try to put me in a body bag! But I don’t think so. O.K. I admit we had some good times, no, great times. Our love for each other was the best (instant gratification) I’ve ever had. But something went wrong for us. Everywhere I took you I made a fool out of myself!
I took you to my job… Made a fool of myself. Brought you to see my family… Made a fool of myself. I went to jail behind you, making me make a fool of myself. When I said I loved you with all of my heart, I didn’t think it would be my actual heart! ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!!
I didn’t know what the problem was at first, until, lying in the hospital bed I figured it out.
I LOVE EVERYTHING YOU HATE!!
I LOVE my Higher Power (which you hate)
I LOVE my family (that you tried to destroy along with me)
I LOVE recovery (which you despise)
So wheresoever you are stay dormant while I ask my Higher Power to keep you in your cage where you belong and I shall use every tool possible to keep you out of my life!!!
