Codependent No More
Codependent No More - How to Stop Controlling Others and Start Caring For Yourself. - Melody Beattie
Relationships feature massively in the lives of both active and recovering alcoholics, addicts and codependents and rarely in a healthy way. This wonderful book contains real-life examples, personal reflections; exercises and self-tests to assist in improving this area of life.
The book recalls the history of, "Codependent No More", and points the way for how to take care of yourself and what to do to start feeling better.
A review by someone who used the book to great effect is below:
“This book saved my sanity, my relationship, maybe even my life. I was going through major upsets in my relationship due to a partner's addiction. I was trying to "fix the world" one painful day at a time. When nothing happened except for me to lose hope, trust, faith and love, I turned to a friend for advice. She recommended this book to me. Whenever I need to take a reality check and think of ME instead of that other person, I open the pages and let it heal me.”
