|I Live To Love An Addict Poem by Ruth Cox|
Self-respect is the life-giving force enabling one a rebirth in the aftermath of contempt toward oneself as well as the addict one loves.
|Loving an Addict, Loving Yourself|
This book (with its companion workbook) by Candace Plattor will help you learn more about loving an addict by learning more about loving yourself.
This love-hate relationship with addicts poem is inspired by Len Maxwell and is my response to his Saturday Writing Essential challenge of Twisted Emotions.
