Sabrina, right after I got out of IOP they did an exercise where they wrote a letter to their "drug of choice." Most of them were angry. But this is what I would have written:
Thank you for being there when I needed you. When I was scared of social settings, you gave me strength. When I was afraid of flying, you gave me courage.
On the days when I felt lonely and empty, you filled me with warmth.
I could always count on you to be there for me when there was no one else. You were my best friend when I had no others. You were my lover, my soulmate. With you I didn't need anyone else.
But, dear, it's time. I've got to find a way to stand on my own two feet. I have to be able to love others, not just you. It's time for me to grow.
So, with deep regret I say goodbye.
