Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this! Great book to read. I could relate to a lot of the feelings and situations. I feel empowered after reading the book. I've started to set some boundaries, and even though some of them weren't successful, I am able to be at peace with it and move pass it due to a lot of self care. Great for anyone to read who is struggling with creating boundaries...regardless if your partner or someone you know is an addict.
