Dear Monster: A UGM residents letter to addiction

10 maja, 2021 Wyłączono przez admin

Because that’s what this feels like when I think about my relationship with drugs and alcohol. Because I loved everything they made me feel. If I was sad or depressed, they turned my frown upside down. To me, drugs and alcohol were my safety, my comfort, my constant companion. They made life bearable and less painful.

  • At times, I felt that I would never make it without you; I felt physically ill once we were apart.
  • Just as I am working to regain control in my life, I am also taking responsibility.
  • 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.
  • I’m not certain what that meant, so I just decided to sit down in my room, put pen to paper, and just start writing.
  • I still don’t understand it nor will I probably ever be able to explain it.

But, thinking about it a lot deeper than that and how funny this may sound but, I actually have to thank you. 101 Tips for Recovering from Addictions can help transform the life of any recovering addict from bleak to bright. These practical suggestions give hope, from seeing the light at the end of the tunnel, to realizing this light holds a promising future to reclaim. This book helps to make addiction recovery possible.

You told me everything would be just fine if I would let you control my life. I hope one day that everyone wakes up to what you really are so that we may all be free of your nonsensical way of life. I will no longer allow you to rob me of who I truly am or create unnecessary chaos in my life. I know I’m better off not associating with you whatsoever going forward and I’m thankful I finally gained the courage to stand up to you and say NO. You thought you were going to get the better of me but I proved you wrong again today!

I don’t miss the hundreds of ER visits and medical detoxes I had to go through to try and get well. I don’t miss the pancreatitis flare ups, although unfortunately the pancreatitis will stick with me for life. I don’t miss waking up at all hours of the night, reaching for you at my bedside and having to drink some of you in order to control my convulsing body. I don’t miss not being able to put my mascara on because my hands were too shaky. In order to somewhat function first thing in the morning. I don’t miss going to the liquor store and shaking so bad during checkout I could barely put my credit card in the card machine to pay.
