I don't know how many of you have heard of this exercise, but in a lot of rehabs, they have you write a "Dear John" letter to your drug of choice, addiction, disease, etc.
It is a way to grieve and begin the healing process. You can tell your affliction how much you love and hate it at the same time, how much you wish things could have turned out differently, how much it hurt you and your loved ones, and all the things it took from you.
If any of you feel up to sharing, I would love to hear what you have to say.
I'm in the process of writing another one, and I will post it when I finish. In the mean time, I'd love to hear yours
