Long Lost Whoopi Letter:

Dear Charlie,

Quit the Coke

3/19/2011 10:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Months after Charlie Sheen OD'd on coke back in 1998, Whoopi Goldberg sent him a note  containing heartfelt words of support ... and a REALLY bad joke -- and TMZ has obtained the original letter.

The letter is postmarked February 1999 -- less than a year after Charlie famously overdosed by injecting himself with cocaine -- and it references the actor's post-rehab "20/20" interview, in which Charlie claimed to be off the drug.

Whoopi -- who has publicly discussed her own battle with substance abuse -- writes, "Saw your interview on '20/20.' I'm so glad your path is clearer. Having lived on that path for many years, it's good to know that you've gone in another direction."

And now for the bad joke -- Whoopi continues, "I'm keeping my fingers, eyes and butt (because it's big enough now) crossed for your success."

Unfortunately, it seems Whoopi's words fell upon deaf ears.

Charlie, Charlie, Charlie, why does everyone want to help you ? So you screwed up your hit show, and you called everyone in Hollywood a cheap Jew, well they are gossipmagazineonline.com !! So what's the problem here, besides too many ex-wife's, but at least you learn to just pay for the sex up front, and you know it's cheaper then paying the ex's. Just cut back on the drugs, and have a good time with the little ladies, it also pisses off the ex's, yeah baby!!!!!!!

Uhmmmm, Rodolfo... Charlie didn't call anyone a cheap Jew. Mark Burg made a statement about that and told everyone how Brooke used to send him other messages from Charlie's phone pretending to be him.

Charlie Sheen,
As one of your fans, I don't have anything to say about the number of women you are living with. I really don't care how much money you make or how much money you spend. And since you apparently don't care about your health, I don't care either.

What I do care about are those children you fathered and what their lives are going to be like without their Father, their Dad. Because that is where you are headed with your addiction.

They deserve more and better than the cruelty you are dealing them, Charlie.
