I know I'm co-dependent but can't seem to act

i always remind myself how crappy i'll feel the next morning if i take refuge in a wine bottle. it's taken a couple of years but it's one impulse i can fight.

i remind myself of my rockbottom time, when my hair was like straw due to dehydration, i was dry-heaving, my eyes were yellow, i couldn't even run the bath i so badly needed - and all because i couldn't deal with the situation with this man.

that was a good while ago - and,although i can't yet find the strength i need to break the bond with him, i found the strength not to bury my feelings when it all got too much.

i try to tell myself that if i have the strength to do that, the strength to walk away from him must surely be within me somewhere...

you don't need to take things with your two exes any further the morning after...and you must forgive yourself any lapses - it's proof you're human.

wazz -

Many of us have crossed the line from codependence to pure addiction in our toxic relationships. What you are describing does sound like addiction. Therapy would help a great deal, if you can manage it. Most of us cannot overcome an addiction without professional support and understanding.
