Description

The book, which is geared towards family members of alcoholics, clarifies a lot of these unhealthy behaviors and gives tips on how to be self-aware and how to manage our emotions, which I find to be helpful, even if it's not groundbreaking scientific work or whatever. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. I thought I knew everything there was to know about co-dependency, but this book took it above and beyond my prior misconceptions.

She married a former alcoholic who was also a prominent and respected counselor and had two children with him. Melody Beattie is the author of Beyond Codependency, The Language of Letting Go, Stop Being Mean to Yourself, The Codependent No More Workbook and Playing It by Heart. An eye-opening book that reveals many behaviors one adopts to handle living with someone with addiction problems, or as in my case, mental-health issues. Having been raised by a codependent parent who catered to my other narcissistic parent, this book has been validating to read. Driven into the ground financially by her husband’s alcoholism, Melody turned a life-long passion for writing into a career in journalism, writing about the issues that had consumed her for years.When Beattie got sober after ten years of alcohol, cocaine, and heroin abuse, her counselors told her that to stay sober, she’d have to face her feelings.

you come across this simple but truthful book and your eyes open wider, as you will learn something new about being controlling without realising it. While the parts about the Twelve Step Program offer a good preview for those considering meetings for codependents, it started feeling like a sales pitch.This book helped me to truly explore that, and I can only say that I am happier on the other side of this book -- and a hell of a lot less anxious LOL. She snuck it into the beginning in a way that many self-help books do ("It helps to find a spiritual power of some sort, whatever your beliefs"), but by the end, she was quoting Bible verses and throwing around tons of "Put your trust in God" verbiage that just made me feel like barf, no thanks. Yesterday I picked up the Codependent No More Workbook and plan on going through that through the course of this week.
