I have never loved and hated you in my life, as much as I do now. I can never be
    with you again Alcohol, and I'm going to miss you. Alcohol, you are the biggest,
    strongest opponent I have ever met.

    Although I fear you greatly and I realize your strength, I'll beat you, you bastard,
    because you see, I'm fighting for my life.

Questions and comments welcomed.
    I haven't seen you for a while.  How are you doing?  When I first met you eight years
    ago, you made me pretty sick -but I fell in love with you.

    It seemed with you along I could do anything; I fit right in at parties, I could talk to
    girls/guys when otherwise I would have been too shy. And most of all you made me
    feel strong.

    You were great Alcohol.  Of course, along with all that strength, courage and wittiness
    comes some trouble. But, any real friendship has its ups and downs, right?

    Alcohol, you have been my best friend for a long, long time.  In that time a lot of other
    friends have come and gone, but you stuck right by me.

    Then something happened; you changed, Alcohol.  You made me do things I didn't
    want to do - you made me do things that made no sense to me - you made me hurt
    the people I loved the most, and I hate you for that Alcohol.

    Why did you have to change?  We had a great relationship, and I want it back.  Since
    you and I both know that you are too stubborn to change back, we need to make
    some changes.

    I don't think you ever liked me Alcohol - I think you used me. You built up my trust
    in you, and when my guards were down you took over.

    Alcohol, I have seen you ruin my brother’s life, and you are slowly but surely killing
    a man I love very much - my uncle. You also killed my 19-year-old friend, and I will
    never forgive you for that.

    I can't trust you any more Alcohol - you are too powerful, and I am really afraid of
    your power.  I'm afraid you won't leave me alone.  I'm afraid you won't leave my other
    brothers and sisters alone, but most of all Alcohol, I'm afraid to have children because
    I know you will try to make them your friend.
