I'm not sure what the mental state is of someone who has succumbed to habits and temptations. Not the harmless ones, but the ones that rip seams and burn bridges. I can comfort and advise, but I hit a wall when dealing with someone who is incapable of controlling their own mindset. How do I convince you that you're better than this? That you're stronger? That you can stop a substance, a man-made feasible object, from tearing apart relationships and pushing you into a down slope.
I've seen you overcome things the average person would cowardly shy from. In my eyes, you're a hero. To see someone so brilliant and able cave to temptations leaves me in a place of confusion. How do I help? What can I do? The distance is not by mileage but by mindset. If you could see what I see in you, and what everyone else sees, you wouldn't recognize yourself. You are immensely powerful and in control of your own emotions and actions. I know you can overcome anything thrown at you, but the problem, the glitch, is that I can't convince you of that; only you can.
I will be here for you, forever and always. But I don't want to lose you. Losing you can be as much mentally as it is physically. I'd consider the relationship we have to be strong, unbreakable. Please don't let this come between the relationships and goals you've worked so hard to attain and keep. You've instilled in me the heart to follow my passions and stray from the average. To excel beyond expectations. Listen to me, as I speak the words that you have engraved in me--You can do this. I have no doubt in my mind. I love you.
