They noticed that the spouses of alcoholics were often absorbed in trying to fix, rescue, or “save” their alcoholic partner, but that their efforts only made the problem worse. Of course the concept of co-dependency extends well beyond having an alcoholic partner. For example, if you find yourself constantly nagging your partner of his responsibilities, or if you find yourself constantly reminding your partner of appointments and other obligations, this is another form of co-dependency. If you believe that you are part of a co-dependent relationship, this book will guide you as you work towards overcoming co-dependency and eliminating controlling behavior while learning to feel fulfilled by your own life.

If you're ready to commit to the change that's required to turn the dynamics in your relationship around, then let's get started!
