"Dear Addiction" by Stan Worthley

Gary Miller

Dear Addiction:

I just wanted to say thank you. I understand this may sound strange to you, but thank you anyways. I have always believed everything happens for a reason and although at the time I could not see the reasons for our relationship. I do now. I used you as an excuse for a lot of things in my life, some justifiable in my own mind and some as just an excuse.

But I do know without you in my life, I would not be where I am today. I do not know how my life would have turned out if we had never met. Would I ever have had a chance run-in with Kathleen? Would I have gone to school and ended up in Vermont? Would I have met all the people that have come in and out of my life? I don’t think so.

Not everything worked out the way I had hoped, and I blamed you for that, even knowing in the end that everything was my choice. I believe there is a reason I’m in these rooms and church basements on a daily basis, and I thank you for leading me here. I would never wish the road we have walked down on anyone. But I do know it is the one I had to take.
