Good Bye Break-Up Letter to Alcohol


Dear Alcohol,

This is a difficult letter to write, and I should have written it years ago. I’m as much to blame as you, and I’ve finally decided that we can’t go on like this any longer. You didn’t force yourself on me…I was just as willing to begin our long friendship as you. It was a mutual thing.

You were always there for me in the best and worst of times. You were with me to celebrate when I got my first job, and again when I got that big promotion. And who could forget how you stayed by my side when my kids were born and we toasted the night away.

You also helped me through some rough periods in my life too. You were there when my parents died and helped me through the grief. When I threw out my back, you comforted me for weeks and eased the pain.

Breakup Letter to AlcoholBut as time went on, I feel like you took advantage of me. You’re not a cheap friend to have. On the contrary, you often cost more than all the other items on the menu, and sometimes a single bottle of wine or champagne runs into the hundreds of dollars. Sure those are for special occasions, but come on. A hundred bucks?

You’re very selfish and only concerned with your own well-being. When I tried to work out and get healthier, you were always waiting for me after the gym, prodding me to just spend a little time with you. Then you seduced me into spending the night with you, and in the morning you’d laugh at me while my head and stomach ached from too much of you.

Worst of all, you have a serious jealousy streak in you, bordering on psychotic. How could you come between my family and me? Not only did you make appearances at the kids’ birthday parties, but you always had to be the star attraction, shifting the attention to you and making a mockery of me and my family. You couldn’t handle even a few special days off so others could shine.

You are filled with empty promises that you’ll play nice and only come to visit once in a while. Instead, you camped out in my home, my car, my office, and even went so far as to hide in my suitcase on our family trip to Disneyland. You know they don’t serve alcohol in the park.

After all the good times we spent, you ended up ruining my life. Because of you, I’ve spent nights in jail, I lost my license, my job, my marriage, and my kids won’t speak to me.

You know the line, it’s not you, it’s me? All these years I thought it was us. But I’ve come to realize that I can’t have you in my life any more. I seriously don’t know if it is you or me. You’ve had such a strong grip on me that I don’t even know who I am today.

So it’s time I let you know that I met someone else and she promised to take care of me, and nurture me back to health. She is filled with joy and gratitude, and takes things one day at a time. She doesn’t judge me, get jealous, or fill my head with empty promises. She has lots of friends that she’s helped before and they’ve turned their lives around. Some took longer than others but they all help each other because they’ve been where I am today. Her name is Recovery and she makes me feel good about myself…as a Person, a Father, a Spouse, and a Friend.

As much as I’d like to blame you for what’s happened to me, our relationship started out with good intentions and just imploded on itself. They say it’s not something that consciously happens, and it really was out of my control. But with help from a lot of caring people, I’m taking control of my life again. As much as it hurts to walk away from you, I’ll always try to remember the good times of my life and put the bad times behind me.

Goodbye my friend.

U.S. MILLENNIALS Millennials: The Me Me Me Generation

Why millennials will save us all

Correction Appended: May 9, 2013

I am about to do what old people have done throughout history: call those younger than me lazy, entitled, selfish and shallow. But I have studies! I have statistics! I have quotes from respected academics! Unlike my parents, my grandparents and my great-grandparents, I have proof.
Here’s the cold, hard data: The incidence of narcissistic personality disorder is nearly three times as high for people in their 20s as for the generation that’s now 65 or older, according to the National Institutes of Health; 58% more college students scored higher on a narcissism scale in 2009 than in 1982. Millennials got so many participation trophies growing up that a recent study showed that 40% believe they should be promoted every two years, regardless of performance. They are fame-obsessed: three times as many middle school girls want to grow up to be a personal assistant to a famous person as want to be a Senator, according to a 2007 survey; four times as many would pick the assistant job over CEO of a major corporation. They’re so convinced of their own greatness that the National Study of Youth and Religion found the guiding morality of 60% of millennials in any situation is that they’ll just be able to feel what’s right. Their development is stunted: more people ages 18 to 29 live with their parents than with a spouse, according to the 2012 Clark University Poll of Emerging Adults. And they are lazy. In 1992, the nonprofit Families and Work Institute reported that 80% of people under 23 wanted to one day have a job with greater responsibility;

10 years later, only 60% did.
