My addiction that I gor rid of was energy drinks with caffeine. Direction: This 1 – 2 page paper is a reflection on the experience of abstaining from your substance or activity. The paper should identify what you abstained from, any challenging moments you experienced, as well as alternatives used to fulfill the void from abstaining from your substance/activity of choice. The second portion of the paper should be a goodbye letter that is to be written to the substance or behavior from which you are abstaining. This is to be written in the first person (e.g., “caffeine, you have always been there for me in the morning…”) and should cover the following 5 areas: 1) How my addictive substance/behavior is loved and is considered a “friend” 2) How my addictive substance/behavior is sensual (appeals to my senses) 3) How my addictive substance/behavior provides “healing” or is a “balm” to my emotional wounds 4) How my addictive substance/behavior controls and promotes my feelings of helplessness and entrapment 5) How my addictive substance/behavior is hated – what it has “cost” me
