There is a very good plan of preparation and planning to free oneself safely and move on in a stickie in Women In Recovery.

I do think we need to spend some time on the how and why so that we may later enter a healthy relationship....and make choices about who we wish to associate with and who we don't. It helped free me. And improved my self-esteem which was badly beaten.

Not being in an abusive relationship, I agree with you Live, but not being in a abusive relationship, I would think, (just my thoughts, mind you) that the importantance would be in getting out of that abuse, and reflecting when that person is in a safe spot?

I have said it before and will say it again..
Recopvery is more than simple sobriety and ceasing the use of drugs. It is the many faces of Eve, if you will, that must also be dealt with by the addict.

Stopping the drug is a first step. Recovery requires practice of at least another 12...

Drained, do me one favor for yourself.
Go to family of alcoholics and read anatomy of abuse and red flags.
When this thread was active, I stayed hidden refused to acknowledge it as I too was in denial. I was wrong!
Abuse continues and progresses and no amount of being taken care of our sweet talk and great times erases the lurking of that secret person
