Wednesday April 14, 2004 - Dear false friend; the nicodemon cigarette

Dear false friend; the nicodemon cigarette,
(first installment)

In the past year, I have looked at our relationship over
the last 22 years and I have discovered a few things I need
to say to you.

I want you to know that I now understand that you tricked
me into believing that I needed you in my life. I now
realize that you conned my friends into believing that they
needed you. I was a very insecure teenager and wanted
desperately to make friends. Because my friends were
already conned into accepting you as a friend, I thought I
could blend in if I did the same thing. I now know that you
were not a real friend and you had hooked all of my peers
and me into a life of illusion. The illusion was believing
that I needed you in my life to feel happy, safe, confident
and secure.

I thought that you could help me to feel confident and
secure around others and that your friendship would help me
become more popular with my friends. I now know that this
is the illusion you projected and that this was a false
perception. Now that I have overcome my denial, I
understand that you really tasted shitty when I first
smoked you, and it took me a month just to overcome the
sick feelings I had when I smoked you. I now understand
that the false confidence I felt when I smoked you had
nothing to do with your friendship. It had more to do with
me going out and meeting people. I just used you as an
excuse to talk to people. I now realize that this is how
you got me �hooked� and addicted. You tricked me into
believing that I needed you to make friends and now I know
this was an illusion. In reality, I have never needed you
in my life to make real friendships.

My so-called friendship with you caused me to falsely
believe that I needed you in all kinds of social
situations. These included talking to someone on a first
date, going to a job interview going to a bar, driving in
my car, during stressful situations at work, writing a term
paper or report and studying for an exam. You tricked me
into believing that I could not survive these normal life
situations without your so-called friendship. My eyes are
now open and I know that YOU ARE NOT MY REAL FRIEND. Real
friends do not trick others into believing they need them.
This so called friendship became an unhealthy, co-dependent
relationship that was sucking the life energy out of me!!!

I am not the same insecure person that I was when you first
entered my life nicodemon. I now understood your tricks and
how you were really destroying my life. I am a confident,
vibrant, intelligent, outgoing human being and I don�t
need you in my life anymore to offer your brand of lies and
false friendship. It is now time for me to let you go

Asta la vista baby!!!
