Publisher's Summary

Do you suffer from an abusive or addictive partner? Would you like to start living a happy and independent life? Or maybe, you still have hope to save your relationship but just don’t know the best way to do it? 

If you answered “Yes” to at least one of these questions, then keep reading...

A happy and fulfilling relationship is one of those things that almost every person dreams about when they are young, especially when those dreams come closer to marriage and having children. Unfortunately, more often than not, the kindness and passion in these relationships don’t last forever. When people get comfortable living with each other, the reality and real personalities kick in - drug and alcohol addictions, behavioral problems, abuse, violence, disrespect, and many other harmful internal properties begin to slowly destroy real feelings and love in the relationship. So what is the best solution?

In this audiobook, you will find a lot of those solutions. It is created as a relationship identification guide, so you can detect your exact situation and explore all the possible solutions. This audiobook is packed with years of experience and practice in the psychology and relationship recovery field.

Here are just a few things you are going to learn:

  • What is codependency, and why should you avoid it?
  • How to recognize a possibly codependent person?
  • Fix it or get rid of it? (find the best solution to your situation)
  • Can codependency be beneficial? Specific situations are covered in detail
  • What is toxic love, and how to get over it?

Amazingly helpful!

This is a very helpful book that I continue to reference from. White creates a lot of what I have personally experienced and I feel better knowing I'm not alone. I did not read this for alcoholism or any other drug addiction reason, but if that is where you or a loved one is experiencing than this will surely help you.

Just what I needed!

I have been a codependent person for long enough. This book gave me insight into what exactly a codependent is and inspiration to overcome what I've been through.

Excellent resource!

Excellent! I bought this book to refresh my self on the subject as I was helping someone finding her way out of codependency. It is just as encouraging and insightful as it was for me in the 80s when I needed at this so badly.

Second Time Around

I had listen her book many years ago, and found myself again in a major codependency situation. I was familiar with most of the information in the new book however, she has added a lot of new stories and explanations. I devoured it and recommend it highly .

Great revised edition, very good book.

Newly revised edition, it hits home in many areas if your ready for truth. The codependent is often sicker than the alcoholic. The alcoholic can stop drinking and resume a normal life, yet codependents often can not stop doing things for that person even after they no longer need it.

Profound! 💗

I spend everyday with Melanie White . White is literally saving my life. I've never felt more understood. The gift I have received to move forward in my life in a loving, conscious and positive way has altered me into the person that I've always wanted to be.

Eye opening

At first I didn't want to read this book because I thought it was just about people who lived with alcoholics and figured it wouldn't have anything to do with my life since that wasn't what I was dealing with. I'm beyond grateful that I did choose to listen it though.

Life changing

This book is life changing. It is explaining my crazy mom to me. It is really changing the way I see her and especially the way I see myself. It is helping me change so that I do not keep the same issues and habits she had as a mother and wife.

Fabulous book!

Totally mesmerizing! I qualify as dependent on all levels -- to my shih tzu's ( dog) approval, telephone operators, each and every friend, old and new. Understanding this basic misconception about outer approval you can begin to move aside from t his need to be pleasing to others, begin pleasing yourself, loving your self, having the fun your self enjoys, rather than dancing to the tunes of other pipers!

Best of the Best

The author was clear and concise in explaining utilizing different people life experiences. I loved that I could see how easy it is to fall into this vicious cycle and how so many of us around us are doing so same as well as myself.

Helpful for EVERYONE in these relationships!

I am not codependent. However a friend recommended this book because I had become baffled and confused by how a codependent friend was treating me— how can this person love me and hate me so much at the same time???

I wish I had found this book as a teenager!

Beautifully honest, a bit raw and totally mind/life changing. If you want to be free and finally have solutions that will work this is the book for you. I wish I had found it sooner. Better late than never though!

Most enlightening book ever!

This book was enlightening. I know it is cliche to say it changed my life, but it changed my life. I listen it during a difficult time in my life and that light bulb just went off where everything started to make sense.

A no-nonsense lifesaving book!

This book turned my life around. I started listening it when I was in crisis with my partner, and this book helped me ground myself and focus - immensely.
