Overview

Have you ever awakened in the middle of the night to rehash a conversation that happened yesterday, or even years ago? Ever stalked someone online, at work or at home, or found yourself holed up in the trunk of a lover's car, just so you could be "close" to them? If you find yourself frazzled, anxiety-ridden and perplexed by people, places or things, this book is for you. These Daily Meditations are for controllers, Al-Anons, co-dependents, or anyone else who really needs to lighten up.

I was invited to Al-Anon by a friend. I wasn't really invited; it was more like I was told to go. As in, "There's a meeting on Third. Good luck, and don't ever call me again." By the time I'd gotten there, I'd exasperated enough of my loved ones that no one said, "Really? You think you need help?" Most people responded with, "Thank God," or, "It's about time!" I wasn't a horrible person. It's not like I had buried bodies under my floorboards. I was just a bit dramatic and a little controlling.

Meet the Author

Misti B. writes humorous books about life in recovery, mainly because no one else is writing them - at least from a witty point of view. Writing If You Leave Me, Can I Come With You? 365 Humorous Daily Meditations for Al-Anons and Codependents kept Misti's mind busy and allowed her to shine some light into normally very dark spaces.Misti's pre-recovery writing included a successful career in the entertainment industry. She’s written and directed a film and has written plays for the live theater, and numerous screenplays. These experiences, combined with her highly dysfunctional upbringing, provide the fodder for her gritty, but inspiring recovery stories.Her second book, Forgive Us Our Debts, Please! 365 Daily Meditations for Debtors, Compulsive Spenders, and Underearners will be available for sale in July, 2014.You can learn more about Misti by visiting MistiBWrites.com.

    Reviewed by Suzanne Cowles for Readers' Favorite

    If You Leave Me, Can I Come With You? 365 Daily Humorous Meditations for Al-Anons & Codependents by Misti B. is a refreshing look at all the things wrong with most of us. I say that lovingly, because I have never met someone who either was not the source of relationship drama or the other person happily addicted to it. In therapy, they call these people codependents. Whether you are recovering from substance abuse or being someone’s doormat, this 365-day calendar will remind you, one day at a time, to focus on what you can control. Some of the suggestions are about listening to the voice in your head, being a control freak, how to be present in the moment, having an overactive brain, being impulsive, changing in a static world, and fear of authority. I especially loved “The One” for those who have a strong attraction to the wrong kind of person. Though written with an air of Erma Bombeck sarcasm, I found the core of what Misti was saying to be true to life.

    Misti offers her own experiences and observations from attending Al-Anon meetings and wrote this book to lighten the gravity of recovery with laughter. I thought that If You Leave Me, Can I Come With You? 365 Daily Humorous Meditations for Al-Anons & Codependents by Misti B. was cute, but brutally honest and displays character traits true of anyone who has an addictive personality. This intelligent book offers inspiration and reminds us that hope is on the horizon.
