You guys, I listened to an awesome podcast earlier (the mental illness happy hour, seriously can not recommend it warmly enough, it’s so knowledgeable and warm and honest, really loving it!) with a therapist who was being interviewed re codependency and addiction. She shared a personal theory she has developed from all her experience working and it goes like this:
Not all codependents are addicts, but all addicts are codependents.
How do you feel about this?
