Writing a letter to your son or daughter who is struggling with dependence or addiction can be cathartic for both the parent and child. It can also allow you to express the caring and emotion you feel that might be harder to communicate in person.
What you would write to your son or daughter? Dear Son, Life is not easy. Do you have the will to survive? Do you have the strength to make it one more day? As a person who has never had a drug or alcohol addiction, I can only speak from that perspective. My insight into your world is only through observation.
I do not wish to walk in your shoes, but I can tell you what it is like to walk in mine — if you are serious about recovery. Every day, I have unfulfilled wants that are not centered on anyone else.
It really never ends. I believe that desire is no different for anyone — a person with a drug addiction and those without. Disappointment and hurt is as much a part of living as joy, happiness, and love.
Hurt is the same for those with an addiction as it is for those without. The difference is how we react to and cope with our emotions, whether they are good or bad. But I do know that my life would be very monochromatic without the peaks and valleys.
I have no doubt from observing you that you hated every day you used drugs. I can see how your life was out of control, spiraling into a pit of hurt and despair. You became so lost that the helping hands of others could not even be grasped. I see your struggles with being clean; more pain than joy.
What is the point, you may wonder? There is one place where no one will say no. There is one life that will accept you. The life of drug use that you have known for the last several years.
That is the easy path to take. But, please know that the immediate pain you feel now will eventually fade.
When my father died, I felt terrible pain and remorse. I flashed back to all the good times, but they were not to be any more. I believe that feeling of loss is something similar to what you are experiencing in order to live on. Your old life must die and there is tremendous pain with that death.
Each day you will want to use just one more time. Time may heal all wounds but the scars are there forever. In time, the scales will balance and you will experience more joy than pain. But for now you must travel the difficult path and find the will to survive.
You will become stronger each time you choose to steer away from that dangerous and tempting path at the fork in the road. It may be hard to see because the path to recovery is difficult.Write to Family Life, The Guardian, Kings Place, 90 York Way, London N1 9GU or email [email protected] Please include your address and phone number.
