Wow Verbena, love the article! Thanks - I needed to read this today.

I have often felt, after reading 'co-dependent no more' years ago - that we are all a little bit co-dependent and that's normal, we are pack animals after all.

This article really points out that the rules completely change when a relationship/marriage is chemically fueled (insert your chemical here).

And after spending all day beating myself up over my stupidity in getting involved with an alcoholic, I have come to realize that shoot - I was ignorant, not necessarily co-dependent! I just didn't know what I was dealing with. And I truly, genuinely love the guy.

Research co-dependency; take what works for you and leave the rest. And welcome; I am new as well and finding myself again - this forum really helps!
