Co-dependent Anonymous- Does It Work?

 I acknowledge that I am very co-dependent. I am in therapy for it. My therapist has urged my to go to a meeting. Should I? For some reason I can't being myself to go... Maybe its because I have no idea where to start...

I too have recently come to the belief that i am codependent. <br />
Especially when things don't quite come together with a lady that sparks my interest.<br />
<br />
But i also recognize that i've had these traits most of my life. Trying to be a "people pleaser" making sure their needs are met before i even think about my own.<br />
<br />
Tonight i've gotten as far as actually tracking down a CoDA meeting in my local area.<br /> <br />
You can track down their meetings here:

I think that a support group would be beneficial. In my experience, I find that it helps to talk to people who understand what you're going through, because they've gone through it themselves. <br />
I wish you the best of luck.
