As the title says, why do substances have to be a GAS state in order to do bond enthalpies?

Is that a question in a paper or are you asking for the same of it? I really don't know thats just how it is. Bond Enthalpy in its definition is about measuring in its gaseous state though

There are strong intermolecular forces in liquids and solids which I imagine would affect enthalpy calculations as they require energy to break.
