Seriously, Dude ,

Fabulous Book!

I've read a lot of books on addictions but this one hit the nail on the head for me. I especially liked how she helps you dtermine how "bad" he is on the scale and how to know if he can be helped. Also good to know are the early warning signs. I've been in an addictive relationship for 5 years. The first 4 I was a co-addict with him but once I got sober he pulled away. I will not give up on him until I've tried everything in this book. If I do decide to leave at least I'll know I tried everything I could and walk away with more dignity. And smarter!
