Co-dependency-of which enabling is a major element-can and does exist in families where there is no chemical dependency. Angelyn Miller's own experience is a dramatic example: neither she nor her husband drank, yet her family was floundering in that same dynamic. In spite of her best efforts to fix everything (and everyone), the turmoil continued until she discovered that helping wasn't helping.
Miller recounts how she learned to alter the way she responded to family crises and general neediness, forever breaking the cycle of co-dependency. Offering insights, practical techniques, and hope, she shows us how we can transform enabling relationships into healthy ones.

This book outlines healing steps to take to free onesself from the pain and suffocation of codependent relationships from the authors own experience. In all the years I have been in recovery this book has given me more measurable success in recovery and relief than any other. A very short read but very powerful. I bought one for each of my daughters. I would have studied it with them as preteens and teens (like it or not) had I had the book then. As young adults they are reading it and gaining thier own healing clarity. Wonderful. Wish I could have coffee with the author!!!
