Co-dependency is an emotional and behavioral condition that affects an individual's ability to have a healthy, mutually satisfying relationship. It is also known as "relationship addiction" because people with codependency often form or maintain relationships that are one-sided, emotionally destructive and/or abusive. Co-dependency is used to describe partners in chemical dependency, persons living with, or in a relationship with an addicted person. Similar patterns have been seen in people in relationships with chronically or mentally ill individuals. Today, however, the term has broadened to describe any co-dependent person from any dysfunctional family.

Often we are a part of toxic relationships without realizing it. It holds us back, blinds us, and keeps us from growing. Instead of holding our partner accountable, we insist, "I need to look after him." But, at what cost? In this seminal work, Codependent No More, the author breaks down, in a most lucid fashion, the cause and effect of being in a codependent relationship, and how to overcome it. Leveraging on the latest scientific and psychological research and longitudinal case studies, the author carefully analyzes how a relationship could degenerate into codependency, what exacerbates it, and what are some of its devastating effects. With a sympathetic and compassionate word Codependent No More provides a platform through which we can come to terms with our past, realize the signs of codependency in our relationships, and overcome the lies that we tell ourselves daily . Never before has the self-perpetuating aspect of codependency been more toxic, and now more than ever we need to cultivate self-worth, acceptance and love for ourselves. In a life that constitutes relationships, which see self-denial, despair, fear, hopelessness, guilt, and depression as a way of life, we need to be reminded of a life beyond the noxious environment we find ourselves in. By clearly defining what separates a healthy relationship from a toxic one, Codependent No More helps us to look beyond our biases and our blind spots and aspire to be with people that can lift us up, rather than bring us down. The author brings the devil out from under the carpet and shines a light on it so we can talk about the things that we've been too fearful of acknowledging. Through Codependent No More you will embark on a journey of self-realization and awareness. It will open you up to change, to positivity, and in the process, the dead wood will fall behind. There is a life before reading Codependent No More, and one after it - such is the magnitude of its impact. This is even truer for those who live in a codependent relationship without knowing it. Codependent No More is geared to become a cultural phenomenon with its humanistic philosophy, profound psychological insights, and a call to growth and change. It is incumbent upon each and every one of us to read this sliver of truth and understanding that is poised to become the cornerstone of every healthy and prosperous relationship.

In Codependent No More, Melody Beattie introduced the world to the term codependency. Now a modern classic, this book established Beattie as a pioneer in self-help literature and endeared her to millions of readers who longed for healthier relationships. Twenty-five years later concepts such as self-care and setting boundaries have become entrenched in mainstream culture. Now Beattie has written a followup volume, The New Codependency, which clears up misconceptions about codependency, identifies how codependent behavior has changed, and provides a new generation with a road map to wellness. The question remains: What is and what is not codependency? Beattie here reminds us that much of codependency is normal behavior. It's about crossing lines. There are times we do too much, care too much, feel too little, or overly engage. Feeling resentment after giving is not the same as heartfelt generosity. Narcissism and self-love, enabling and nurturing, and controlling and setting boundaries are not interchangeable terms. In The New Codependency, Beattie explores these differences, effectively invoking her own inspiring story and those of others, to empower us to step out of the victim role forever. Codependency, she shows, is not an illness but rather a series of behaviors that once broken down and analyzed can be successfully combated. Each section offers an overview of and a series of activities pertaining to a particular behavior -- caretaking, controlling, manipulation, denial, repression, etc. -- enabling us to personalize our own step-bystep guide to wellness. These sections, in conjunction with a series of tests allowing us to assess the level of our codependent behavior, demonstrate that while it may not seem possible now, we have the power to take care of ourselves, no matter what we are experiencing. Punctuated with Beattie's renowned candor and intuitive wisdom, The New Codependency is an owner's manual to learning to be who we are and gives us the tools necessary to reclaim our lives by renouncing unhealthy practices.

The heart of a codependent runs deep. You have a sincere desire to help and ease the pain of others. Your heart hurts to see others struggle. Being compassionate is second nature to you. These traits are a magnet for those with a need for constant support.People trust you with their deepest pains because you are empathetic. You know what it feels like to suffer, but you may not share it publicly. The difference is that you can put your pain aside to help others.Tip: Strive for moderation. Most people who struggle with codependency are afraid of what others will think if they stop taking care of everyone. Recognize that giving is only one reason people like you. Your generosity shouldnt increase your stress. If it does, its time to find ways to contribute that are more aligned with your needs.Codependency is developed in childhood as a response to coping with addiction, neglect or abuse. When children's needs aren't met, they look for ways to stay safe and avoid the abuse. They learn how to take the emotional temperature of others in order to stay safe. Reading other people's feelings and behaviors becomes your unique gift. You know where there is tension in a room and how to avoid it.In adult relationships you are extremely perceptive and able to pick up on the littlest of upsets. You may find yourself taking things personally as a result.Tip: Trust these feelings as your guide. They serve you well in most situations but that doesnt mean you need take action. Being able to recognize other peoples emotions gives you an opportunity to choose. If its the same old drama, let it go. There is a great quote; "Not your circus, not your monkeys that keeps you focused on your feelings and your problems.People know they can depend on you no matter what. You have proven again and again that you are extremely loyal. You know what to say in a crisis and use that emotional superpower to know how to be supportive. You have a stellar reputation as a volunteer and friend because you always contribute and people count on that.Tip: Make conscious choices when committing to something new. Remember that its okay to do less. True friends want you to take better care of yourself. They dont expect you to give endlessly and if they do then its time to re-evaluate the relationship. You deserve to have relationships that are mutual and satisfying.Healing codependency starts with practicing moderation. The qualities that your friends and family love about you don't have to be discarded completely. Every asset becomes a liability when taken too far. But if you're conscious of this, you will be able to recognize when you're over-extended and take a step back.It will take effort at first, but over time, balancing what you give to others with what you need to be happy gets easier. Appreciate your generosity by giving yourself the time and attention so freely lavished on everyone else. Remember, the true test of recovery for a codependent is bringing that loving care back to you.This book is your pathway to codependent life, why wait when you can get started now.
