I drink too much and I am sincerely unhappy. I have had thoughts of suicide often in the past 18 days.

There are no days when I feel happiness.

There are only days when I can successfully feign happiness to others.

My mind is absolutely fucking perfect.

It is my mentality that is garbage.

The only way that I can move forward is to acknowledge my own flaws.

I cannot imagine that this will be an easy, or pleasant, process.

I can only imagine that it is neccessary.

I hope this message finds you well, and I hope that you are in the best of spirits. Someday I will find you, and we can walk hand-in-hand into the autumnal sunset.

Until then I am on my own, and I will do my best to do well without you.

I will always love and miss you.

Regards,

-Theo

No. Not this. Someone is going to work on themselves and quit a bad habit; don't encourage them to substitute it with some other kind of degeneracy.

I guess if that worked for them, good for them. But it seems only slightly better than a lateral move. If someone wants to aim higher with their goals (such as being clear-headed and not dependant on chemicals), it is disingenuous to suggest that substituting one drug for another is a good way to achieve this.

This is no slight to your friend though. If they improved their life, good for them.
