Almost every book I read says that all codependent people are in various stages of recovery...Do we EVER fully recover?
Can we be cured?

Are drug addicts ever recovered? Are alcoholics ever? I think it is an addiction just as difficult, your head goes with you everywhere you go. a bottle or a drug does not if you choose. i think you can be aware of your issues and you need to be in a group weekly or more if needed, so you don't return to the behavior. Codependency is usually learned before adulthood and deeply ingrained. i think everyone has some type of codependency. not many keep it in check. just remember that a healthy you is good for everyone, not just you. you can not fix anyone else.

I used to think I had overcome my codependency. And I figured "Co-dependent No More" meant just that. However, I've learned that perhaps it goes into remission, but it's easy to slip back into old ways if you're not diligent and continue to recognize the problem as always under the surface.

I think that it is possible to learn how to not be a codependent. I think if you have hit rock bottom and realize your mistakes you can learn from them. I know that I have learned a great deal in such a short amount of time. I know what I am willing to accept in a future relationship and what I am not willing to accept. I've met a couple of people the past couple of weeks and already my radar antennae was saying "Danger, Will Robinson, Danger." That is a wonderful sign.

I think that we are work in progress. In retrospect just a few months ago I was more naive, more codep. Last year, I was more codep. The more time passes, the more I find that I become more independent and free. If course it all takes hard work and diligence from my part. I did not wake up in the morning and found myself all of a sudden strong and autonomous.
