I am one week into the word co-dependancey. I read "Co-Dependancey No More" already and have begun the exercises. Where I am really unsure is if my husband fits any of the alcoholic qualities. Yes the book contained so many of my behaviors I nearly cried; however, I have never been good at trusting myself and don't know what is mine and what is his. I have always, for the last 12 1/2 years did everything in this relationship...I have carried it in its entirty and now, that I realize how destructive that is, I don't know what is mine and what is his. He drinks every night...2,3, 5, 7 beers a day...does that make him an alcoholic? There are nights when he yells at me and doesn't remember in the morning, could that be because of the alcohol? I know the way I feel - forgotten, unfulfilled and not loved or cared about, but is it truly he way it is? While I feel my eyes have been opened, I am more confused now.
