Then, one day, you pushed me into that grave and began covering me up. You thought you would be saying the goodbye. Addiction, you’re a liar, a thief, and a cruel master.
I now have a new job, and have made new friends through recovery support groups who have broken free from their substance abuse problems, just as I have. Reduces anxiety and reluctance to recovery. As you write your letter, you will inform your past addiction of your future goals. Putting your goals in writing makes your success much more likely and attainable.

My goodbye letter to alcohol
It’s a clean break and we won’t be taking your name along with us. So, if you’ve been wondering why I said goodbye to you for good, it was because I began to resent you and then quickly fell out of love with you. I know who I am, what I like, what I need and how I want to live my life. I no longer feel weighed down by you and have since found clarity and purpose. I mastered your ways, the spell you cast on others and how you grip down on people with your deceitful tricks. Because of this mastery, I’m now able to help others break loose from your chains too.
When you come across it later, it can serve as a reminder of how far you’ve come. This goodbye letter to addiction isn’t meant to be sent, so you can say whatever you want! Discuss what made you mad, what hurt you, what you’re still holding on to, and what you need to let go of.
