It’s not you….it’s me!
The longer you are in my life, the harder it is to reach my full potential, I need you gone and gone for good!
I can’t live with you, and I can’t live without you! I know I have tried many times before and you always seem to creep back into my life!
I think about you all the time, yet when we are together my heart pumps faster, my head starts to hurt, not to mention the delayed reaction I get in my stomach after your gone.
It’s torture to be away from you! When I am out with friends, I love having you around, you make me laugh and I never want to leave the party when you’re near!
From the minute I wake up you are all I think about. After we get together it’s a downward spiral until the next time we meet! That sort of up and down is never good for anyones health and wellbeing.
I can’t continue along like this, I feel like you are robbing me of my ‘good years’ and I need to take back the control.
For this to work and for me to be/stay in control, you can’t live with me, you can’t live near me, and you can never visit my place!
I must not visit you ever again!
It has to be like this, there is no other way, you are a health risk to me.
I will not substitute you!
I will remove you from my life once and for all, because everything I read tells me I will be 100% better off without you.
You are not my friend, you never were!
Your motives are all wrong. To come into my life and allow me to believe you make me feel better, it’s all lies!
You bring all your sweet sweet friends with you to entice me further, but it’s too late, I am finally on to you now!
I realise it has taken me the best part of twenty years to discover how harmful and toxic you and I are together, and that is what’s making it painfully embarrassing to admit to my family and friends that I must break up with you!
This time I have to do it differently, I have too!
Family and friends, when you see me in the street, just give me a nod that you recognise I am on a different path now, you don’t have to ask me how I am coping without my addiction in my life. Perhaps you could make it a tiny bit easier by trying not to tempt me when we are together. Can you please be my support network, keep me strong throughout my withdrawals and remind me, just like Dorothy from Wizard of Oz I have always had the power to be in control of my own destiny.
I will not surrender to my addiction anymore.
I will stop drinking coffee. Correction! I.have.stopped.drinking.coffee.
29th January, 2016 one day sober strong!
What’s your addiction? What/who do you need to do the break up dance with……
….they are all real addictions and most likely killing you slowly. Be strong take back the control and release yourself from your addiction once and for all.
Leave a comment, I would love to hear all about your addictions, struggles and/or triumphs to eliminate them from your life.
Bye for now,
