This books tells in complete detail the undefined issue of being a codependent. There are applications to codependcy that fall under substance abuse, but this book can speak to any relationship you have with someone that is unhealthy and tells you how to break free.
I feel like I could have written this book. It helped me understand myself and why I had the feelings I did while living with someone who has addiction problems. Exceptional!
Found hope inside the pages. Incredibly well written, I gained a better understanding of my problem. Plan on reading it again, and completing the assignments.
There are very few books that I consider life changing... this is THAT BOOK!!! I have never taken care of myself or even thought I needed to. Read this book and change your life.
This will help any folks who are really suffering with what they believe ia codependency. It will answer your questions mostly through anecdotes, and the opinion of the author. Which really, are pretty fair.
This can be life alternating if you are in the right place to receive. I didn't relate to everything about the chemical and alcohol dependency; however, there is much insight and practical applicable knowledge.
