All too often, loved ones of people struggling with addiction suffer right along with them, not knowing what they can do to help—and often doing things that actually enable the addiction to continue. For those of you who are loved ones of people with addictions, the holidays can be a most stressful time.
On Wednesday, December 4, 2013 at 2 pm PST, please join me for an insightful, free Tele-Class called “Loving an Addict, Loving Yourself: Surviving the Holidays,” to learn tips and strategies for making the holidays more manageable and enjoyable for both you and your loved ones.
I will share some new and different understandings about addiction, as well as strategies to help you become free from the emotional, physical, and financial traps you find yourself in with your addicted loved ones, especially around the holidays.
In this tele-class, you’ll also discover:
- How to disengage from the urge to “control” or “fix” your loved one. Yes, it’s hard to do, but you must accept that you cannot stop your loved one’s addiction.
- How to help your loved one without “enabling” the addiction. You can learn to genuinely help your loved one without supporting their addiction.
- The difference between “self-care” and being “selfish”. Caring for yourself and honoring your own boundaries is the path that will free you from your struggle and pain.
There will be time for Q&A, for those of you with questions about how best to love someone with an addiction.
Join us for this insightful Free Tele-class—“Loving an Addict, Loving Yourself: Surviving the Holidays” and receive tips for getting yourself out of the chaos of your loved one’s addiction.
