Losing a loved one to drugs or alcohol isn’t an easy thing to go through.
It’s a different type of loss.
When someone dies there is a sense of finality.
When someone loses their life to addiction it’s emotional war for those caught in the crosshairs.
You guys, this opioid epidemic is seriously getting out of hand!
I remember just YEARS ago thinking heroin was like THE WORST drug of all drugs and nobody EVEN I knew would ever do it!
Let’s all just laugh at my old self together right now.
This sad reality came up and punched me in the face one morning when I got the news that my best friend was a suddenly a heroin addict.
It’s been a long, difficult road since then.
A little over a year into it I’ve finally realized I’m not in the drivers seat of this car.
This friendship has been running “one- way” for too long.
The WordPress word of the day today is “Haul”.
For my entry, I’d like to write a letter to my ex best friend as we transition into this finality in our friendship.
When I think of the word “haul” the first thing that comes to mind is “abundance”.
You move stuff; you haul LOTS of stuff.
My display of the word “haul” is by “freeing myself” from her burdens that I’d been hauling.

Dear friend I lost to addiction,
Sorry that the awesome times we had together came to a screeching halt.
It makes me sad
That you never got to enjoy this beautiful life to it’s full potential.
I hate admitting
That the pure horror of this past year is slowly tainting the greatness of the ten before.
I thought I’d be enough.
To save the lost 13 year old I first met who gave up on looking for their place in this world.
And you always have been.
The world lost a great person.
I lost my best friend.
There are days it still kills me.
Days my mind still tricks itself into believing I can fix you…
I didn’t just leave.
I will always love you but I can’t watch you kill yourself.
I bleed the pain that you’re numbing.
I hope that someday you will understand.
I still pray for you.
Find the Lord, He’s been looking for you.
You are in control of how this story ends.
A couple days of hell are worth a lifetime of happiness.
Goodbye for now.
I’m rooting for you❤️#Addiction #Inspiration #Haul #HeroinEpidemic #Loss #Friendship #Goodbye #Life #Inspire #Praying #LettingGo #Recovery
