The cultural phenomenon that has helped heal millions of readers, now fully revised and updated, with a new chapter on trauma, this modern classic holds the key to understanding codependency and unlocking its hold on your life.
As heard on Glennon Doyle’s We Can Do Hard Things podcast.
Melody Beattie’s compassionate and insightful look into codependency—the concept of losing oneself in the name of helping another— has helped millions of readers understand that they are powerless to change anyone but themselves and that caring for the self is where healing begins.
Is someone else's problem your problem? If, like so many others, you've lost sight of your own life in the drama of tending to a loved one’s self-destructive behavior, you may be codependent--and you may find yourself in this book. With instructive life stories drawn from Beattie's own life and those she's counseled, personal reflections and exercises, Codependent No More helps you to break old patterns, maintain healthy boundaries, and say no to unhealthy relationships. It offers a clear and achievable path to freedom and a lifetime of healing, hope, and happiness.
This new edition includes an all-new chapter on trauma and anxiety—subjects Beattie has long felt necessary to address within the context of codependency—making this edition the definitive version of a ground-breaking book that is even more relevant today, as readers confront new, urgent challenges with greater self-awareness, than it was when it first entered the national conversation over 35 years ago.
