I'm all for making this a sticky, it's brilliant!

Just one thing to add - codependents (myself included) are sick too. We need help to overcome our tendencies to rescue and be martyrs. The best moment is when we realise this. And with this realisation comes the associated view that we can't help the alcoholic when we're sick - it doesn't do us or them any favours. We only end up hurt and resentful when our efforts don't generate results and go unappreciated, and the alcoholic has no reason to better themselves and make their own decision to get help and stick to it.
