"Dear Blank, This is What I Want You to Know" by Noah Lowry
Dear (whoever it may concern)You might not get how people can get addicted to things. But let me tell you, it’s real. My addiction to me is like the mother I never had and when I am feeling lonely or sad or even depressed, it’s there to hold me, give me a hug and a kiss and always promises me everything is going to be all right. Life is hard, at least to me. So I ask you, what’s better then grabbing a bottle and within 30 minutes, your mind and the way you feel makes you feel better. I’m not proud of my addiction. I am 28 years old and i have been struggling since I was in my early 20's. You might not be addicted to something. But just because your not, don’t try and judge me or my character, because the bottle does not define me. Look at yourself before you wanna start talking about somebody else.
