Addiction & Relationship: Recovery from Co-Dependency
For every person suffering from chemical dependency and addictions at least four people are affected. This is because the individual’s thoughts, words, deeds and existence revolves around using – when, how, with whom, how much etc. The loved one’s minds are preoccupied by the same … when, how, with whom, how much etc. will the person be using – though the loved one might be at work, travelling, sleeping, eating etc. The mental, emotional occupation with the obsession and the compulsion to find out about the chemically dependent person is increased many fold – exactly as what happens with the person who is using. Their lives revolve around the person using. This is called Codependency.
