You were what brought me to my lowest; you were what took away my control. I started off every day trying to find you because I desperately felt that you could fix all of my problems. I fail now to comprehend why it took me so long to understand that you were the problem. I also question myself on why it took me so long to leave you ultimately. Without you, Addiction, I’m doing things I’ve never thought were possible. I have people that I love, and I know they love me back. And I’m able to watch my daughters grow older.
- You don’t stop even when we are lying broken on the floor, crying and begging for mercy.
- It turns out that you are also vindictive, as you did everything in your power to pull me right back in.
- I am making the decision to leave you now.
- Make this goodbye letter to addiction your last one.
Resurgence Behavioral Health knows that your goodbye letter to drugs isn’t an easy letter to write. Let us help you let go of the baggage and rediscover the person you want to be for you and your loved ones. We promise it is a decision you will not regret. Our team is here for you seven days a week for physical and emotional support. At Resurgence Behavioral Health, we ask you to bring a journal or notebook to record your journey to sobriety. In your goodbye letter to drugs, describing the effects abuse has had on your life can motivate change. Having problems with the law, strained personal relationships, damaged reputation, and damaged self-esteem are some effects we don’t want to acknowledge.
This can keep you motivated in your recovery as well as help you feel power over your addiction as you recognize that you have a brighter future ahead of you. We know continual support is essential in saying goodbye to your addiction, which is why we offer extended support. We work with faith and science-based modalities, such as AA and SMART recovery, to help our patients find long-term sobriety. MAT is crucial for life-threatening detox processes. The letter above is just an example, and yours should be focused on your own experience and feelings. It’s okay to feel sad while writing your letter, but it’s also important to focus on the good things that are about to come.
What is prayer for addicts?
St. Jude, most holy Apostle, in my need I reach out to you. I beg you to intercede for me that I may find strength to overcome my illness. Bless all those who struggle with addiction.
With the help, love, and support of God, as well as my family and counselors, I crawled out of the dirt and fought back. I tried to leave you, but you just came back even stronger and harder than before. You physically and mentally made me sick, and yet I still kept you around. People thought I loved you more, but that was far from the truth. I remember when you first came into my life. I thought you would ease the pain of my youth and make my present pain go away.
Help Your Future Self
The other people I was with were bothered by that, and they began to avoid me because they didn’t like you — and they no longer liked the “me” I had become. You seduced me with the idea that I was free of all prejudices and that “society” was trying to brainwash me.
