|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.

|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.
