A letter to Alcohol

To my old friend Alcohol

Hey Alcohol, how ya doing? I have a few things I need to get off my chest concerning you and me and our relationship. So here goes.

You had me fooled for quite some time didn’t you? Pulled the wool right over my eyes. My biggest regret with being associated with you was not wising up to your evil manipulation sooner.

Don’t get me wrong, we did have some good times together to start with but you spoiled all that by wanting me to yourself.

You took over and messed with my head so much, making me do and say things that weren’t me.

I almost lost my marriage and my kids because of you, but I did lose their trust and faith in me.

You took all my money and almost took my life on more than one occasion. You are filth.

The best thing I have ever done is be in touch with the right people who know all about you and your manipulation.

My health and my mind are much better now. I have money and best of all, my marriage and my relationship with my wife and kids is back on track and looks brightly promising.

For me now, it is onwards and upwards and I don’t ever want to have anything to do with you again.

So, as they say, shut the door on ya way out, will ya.

Goodbye and good riddance,

Your friend no more
