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.

@44 I have never read anything more ridiculous, insulting and basically...Oh, what the hell! It's a bunch of horse crap.

I just hope that Charlie Sheen gets off the drugs, because I dont want him to end up like my sister. My sister lives in a locked ward now after shrinking her brain due to years of doing drugs and too much beer doctors said.
Charlie is such a talented actor. Love him.
