I grew up in an alcoholic home and then married an alcoholic/substance abuser. 3 years ago, I took control of my life and left my ex-husband but have recognized a patterned in myself of a codependent. In the three years I took the time to find myself and to love myself but find I am a magnet to those that are addicts or recovering addicts. I am always looking to “fix” others and love others and trying to fill the void that is absent in me. I recently relapsed and fell into a depression and found CoDA. I am grateful as a newcomer that I am not alone. I know that I am a work in progress and I have to take every day at a time or I am no good to myself or my boys.
