I did not realize the huge repurcussions it would create in my life, when my youngest daughter left home, for college. Friends told me it would be a huge adjustment but, I just "poo pooed," them and said,"no," I am prepared for it; and besides, it will be a wonderful experience for her to live away from home and experience life in the dorm. As a single mother, I had come to depend upon my daughter in numerous social situations. We were friends who went to movies, dinner, watched some TV together, took trips together.I began to count on her to be my partner for any plays or other events that were on our community calendar. I realize today, that I had become overly dependent on my child to be a source of company for me.I had not developed enough outside resources of my own. After she left for school, I began to slowly slip emotionally - I just could not seem to get myself together - I could not stop calling, writing or e-mailing; I was totally nuts and, so was my life! She finally told me herself, to back off and give her some space. It was difficult to accept those words but I knew she was right; I was taking away her dignity as a 19 year old adult. The book has helped me so much to realize that I need to focus on making my own life the fullest that it can be and, not put that burden on any of my three children. Thanks Melody.

A coworker recommended this book to me, after witnessing my turmoil of constantly being taken advantage of professoinally and personally. She said, it opened her eyes.

With doubts, I bought this book. I had just a little bit too much from everyone. I wanted to stop feeling like a victim. I did not understand why people think of me as a bitch, even after I did so much for just everybody and none for myself.

This book, saved me.

While devoting a significant portion to discussing substance codependence and dysfunctional relationships (between lovers, friends, families and any human beings), it showed me the most important lesson that I learned: be true to yourself. If there is something you do not like, say no. Do not say yes because you expect a certain behavior from the other person. What he/she does, is irrelevant. What is it that you want to do? And more importantly, what is it, that you do not want to do?

Recognize that, and learn to respond to it.

I do not have anyone in my life who is dependent on alcohol or any substance. But I have experienced the same disappointment when someone you love fails to act responsibly. I used to be angry, sad, depressed and still feel them for many different reasons. Feelings are fine. I have learned, after reading this book, how to react to my feelings.

I don't know whether I would have understood this book 10 years ago. But I do now. If you feel the pain I used to feel (and sometimes still do, because it is a long way to recovery), please read this book. Please feel better and say no to people who take advantage of you. Please love yourself enough to be codependent no more.

This (and the sequel) are the only self-help books I've ever read. It changed my life, and that is exceedingly rare. It validated my feelings and gave me the tools to cope with the issues in my life. As I read it, I was amazed and delighted to find that others had said and felt the same things I was saying and feeling. Best of all, there were solutions! If you are co-dependant, keep these books nearby for quick reference and read them religiously. You may often need a refresher. It's like a mental shot in the arm!

This book saved my sanity, my relationship, maybe even my life. I was going through major upsets in my relationship due to a partner's addiction. I was trying to "fix the world" one painful day at a time. When nothing happened except for me to lose hope, trust, faith and love, I turned to a friend for advice. She recommended this book to me. I was skeptical to try yet another DO IT YOURSELF book to fix what was wrong with me, but this one opened my eyes. For the first time ever, I saw the patterns of my actions leading me straight to heartache and frustration. The descriptions were right on target, I saw myself in every list. It was scary, yet encouraging, because I did not feel alone, nor did I feel I was too far gone to be helped. This book will be a fixture on my nightstand to get me through the weaker points in my life. Whenever I need to take a reality check and think of ME instead of that other person, I open the pages and let it heal me. Thank you, Ms. Beattie!

This book helped me to see the side of myself that gets hooked into situations that are unhealthy for me, and my reactions to it. I felt like Melody is a friend who tells you the truth without her ego getting in the way. This is one of the books I go to to when I'm checking out that I am on the right path and that I'm not crazy. Her writing is simple and to the point without alot of fancy language that makes an already insecure person feel better able to grab the message. Face it, if you are reading this book, your mind and emotions are probably in turmoil, and kindness is the key to recovery from what's eating you. This is one of my books I no longer loan out, because people don't return them!

This wonderful book captivated me from the very first words the author wrote: 'This book is dedicated...to me.' Of all the self-help books I've ever read...Codendent No More is the most inspirational and spiritual read. Ms Beattie helped me to tap into my own shortcomings. And I thank her for that because in doing so, I am now TRULY able to move forward in my soul and spiritual growth. I feel like a thousand pounds have been lifted off my shoulders; I feel a sense of peace within myself that I've never felt before. Codependent No More is a 'must read' for anyone who has been searching for positive and meaningful growth within themselves. YoU WoN't Be SoRrY :)

All I can say is that I wish that someone had suggested this book for me 10, 15, or more years ago. I have lost more than a nice woman in my life because I was a "rescuer", and a "codependent", and wanted to give, and give, and give, without receiving anything back, until it was all fore granted, and I got no more to give, then things would take a noise dive. She would be very unhappy, and unsatisfied with what she was getting; it became not enough! Read this book two, three, or more times, and let it sink in. I wish academic schools, colleges, and universities were teaching us this kind of material.

Finding myself a soon to be divorced woman and mother of four, I entered counseling and after one session, this book was recommended to me. It truly changed my life. I returned to school, became a registered nurse and turned my life around. That was 6+ years ago; my children are learning healthy lifetime behaviours that I didn't have available from my family; and sad to say, my ex-husband is still as lost as ever. This book changed my life and I have bought and given away more than 2 cases to others. Thank you, Melody, for your insight and direction. Its there for the taking, if you only open yourself to change.

This book describes anyone who is in any kind of co-dependent relationship. It opens your eyes to the real you, what makes you tick, why you tick that way and how to heal yourself. It focuses on how to change your life from chaos to happiness, restoring sanity and begin liking and even loving yourself. It opens your eyes to the types of behaviour patterns we exhibit which actually make these co-dependent relationships even more chaotic. Painfully honest. It will restore hope, give encouragement and incentive to those who seek healing in their lives from the pain of being involved in a relationship with an addicted person.
