To My Loved One Fighting Addiction, I'm Here for You

You might not realize how important you are to me but you are. Regardless of your struggles with addiction, you’re loved and such an important part of my life. Believe it or not, I feel for your suffering and I wish there was something I could do to help you overcome your addiction and take all your pain away. 

I wish you could see how much love you have around you, because it breaks my heart to pieces to hear you say that you don’t feel this world needs you. It hurts me when you say that I’m better off without you, because that’s far from the reality. I need you in my life, and there’s nothing more I want than having you back, healthy and happy, like you were before your addiction took over your life. 

You have so much to give and so much to live for. It’s really hard to see how your addiction is slowing fading away the light in your heart. It’s not fair that all your dreams have to take a back seat because you no longer have a handle of yourself. You walk around in a daze, lost, like a shell of a man. 

I know it must be extremely hard to face your demons. I can only imagine the monumental struggle that it must be to wake up and immediately want to run away from yourself. 

I know that dealing with your emotional issues is way too painful and that your addiction has been your best coping mechanism and scape, but you have to realize that it has only brought more pain and destruction into your life. 

I could never give up on you, but I need you to help me help you. I want to care for you and assist your recovery. I want to see you healthy and happy, I miss you tremendously. I’m willing to put in the work to get you back on your feet, because you matter to me. I love you and would do anything for you. 

I want to see a smile back on your face. I want to see you accomplish all your goals and dreams. I want to see the real you shine and be present, breathing, living. I know in my heart that you’re capable of fighting this thing and I want to be there for you every step of the way if you allow me to.  

Please don’t give up on yourself, because I’ll never give up on you. You deserve a healthy life, filled with love and joy, and I know that you can have it. You’re not alone, believe me. 

You’re so much more than your addiction and I know you’re strong enough to reach the light at the end of the tunnel. 

"The struggle you're in today is developing the strength you need tomorrow. Don't give up." – Robert Tew
