Why was “live and let live” such a hard concept to wrap my mind around? I feel an urgency to fix everything that goes wrong in my addicted love ones life.
It is easy to let anxiety consume every waking moment when we live with an active addict. I felt a false sense of control and became anxious when I thought the addict in my life was going to use.
Addiction is a disease that affects the user and their family members, friends and coworkers. I tried to control, cover-up, and take on the responsibilities for the addict.
