About the Author

Melody Beattie is the author of numerous best-selling books, including Codependent No More, Beyond Codependency, The Language of Letting Go, More Langauge of Letting Go, and 52 Weeks of Conscious Contact. Her first book, Codependent No More, was published by Hazelden in 1986. Melody's compassionate and insightful look into codependency--the concept of losing oneself in the name of helping another--struck a universal chord among families struggling with a loved one's addiction or other life issues. More than twenty years later, the concepts continue to ring true for millions of people worldwide, as Codependent No More has sold more than five million copies and has been translated into more than a dozen languages. In 2009, Dr. Drew Pinsky named Codependent No More one of four essential self-help books of all time in Newsweek magazine. Melody's recent titles include The Grief Club, Gratitide, and The New Codependency. Her new book, Codependent No More Workbook, will be in stores in the spring of 2011.


More About the Author

Melody Beattie is one of America's most beloved self-help authors and a household name in addiction and recovery circles. Her international bestselling book, Codependent No More, introduced the world to the term "codependency" in 1986. Millions of readers have trusted Melody's words of wisdom and guidance because she knows firsthand what they're going through. In her lifetime, she has survived abandonment, kidnapping, sexual abuse, drug and alcohol addiction, divorce, and the death of a child. "Beattie understands being overboard, which helps her throw bestselling lifelines to those still adrift," said Time Magazine.

Melody was born in St. Paul, Minnesota in 1948. Her father left home when she was a toddler, and she was raised by her mother. She was abducted by a stranger at age four. Although she was rescued the same day, the incident set the tone for a childhood of abuse, and she was sexually abused by a neighbor throughout her youth. Her mother turned a blind eye, just as she had denied the occurrence of abuse in her own past.

"My mother was a classic codependent," Melody recalls. "If she had a migraine, she wouldn't take an aspirin because she didn't do drugs. She believed in suffering." Unlike her mother, Melody was determined to self-medicate her emotional pain. Beattie began drinking at age 12, was a full-blown alcoholic by age 13, and a junkie by 18, even as she graduated from high school with honors. She ran with a crowd called "The Minnesota Mafia" who robbed pharmacies to get drugs. After several arrests, a judge mandated that she had to "go to treatment for as long as it takes or go to jail."

Melody continued to score drugs in treatment until a spiritual epiphany transformed her. "I was on the lawn smoking dope when the world turned this purplish color. Everything looked connected--like a Monet painting. It wasn't a hallucination; it was what the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous calls 'a spiritual awakening.' Until then, I'd felt entitled to use drugs. I finally realized that if I put half as much energy into doing the right thing as I had into doing wrong, I could do anything," Beattie said.

After eight months of treatment, Melody left the hospital clean and sober, ready to take on new goals: helping others get sober, and getting married and having a family of her own. She married a former alcoholic who was also a prominent and respected counselor and had two children with him. Although she had stopped drinking and using drugs, she found herself sinking in despair. She discovered that her husband wasn't sober; he'd been drinking and lying about it since before their marriage.

During her work with the spouses of addicts at a treatment center, she realized the problems that had led to her alcoholism were still there. Her pain wasn't about her husband or his drinking; it was about her. There wasn't a word for codependency yet. While Melody didn't coin the term codependency, she became passionate about the subject. What was this thing we were doing to ourselves?

Driven into the ground financially by her husband's alcoholism, Melody turned a life-long passion for writing into a career in journalism, writing about the issues that had consumed her for years. Her 24-year writing career has produced fifteen books published in twenty languages and hundreds of newspaper and magazine articles. She has been a frequent guest on many national television shows, including Oprah. She and her books continue to be featured regularly in national publications including Time, People, and most major periodicals around the world.

Although it almost destroyed her when her twelve-year-old son Shane died in a ski accident in 1991, eventually Melody picked up the pieces of her life again. "I wanted to die, but I kept waking up alive," she says. She began skydiving, mountain-climbing, and teaching others what she'd learned about grief.

I chose this book to review because this subject is very personal to me. Without going into too much detail, I have a family member that has an addiction. It has been a very trying time for me over the past year. I actually own the original book CODEPENDENT NO MORE but I haven't opened it yet. However, when this book was offered to me I realized that some good would come out of me reading it.

Going to a 12 step program such as Al-Anon, Nar-Anon or Codependents Anonymous is something the book highly recommends. The format of the book is shaped around the 12 steps of Codependents Anonymous with each chapter going into detail about a step or two. The steps are similar to those in other 12 step programs with slight adaptations to fit Codependents. Each chapter has exercises and activities to make sure the reader understands the steps discussed. Since it can take months or even years to move past certain steps, it can be a while before the book is finished. However taking as much time as it needs to come to this understanding is beneficial to find healing.

There are some places where I am in disagreement with the author. I'm not sure if this is because of my faith vs. the theory but several times I felt that I could not agree with Beattie. I completely understand the need that I need to focus on myself and reevaluate how I am acting and thinking. Maybe I just read it wrong or I'm not completely understanding but there were times when I felt that it seemed that the addict or whoever is causing you to be codependent was not at fault and you were. To worry or even think about them at all seemed to be wrong. It's said that you might even need to completely cut them out of your life in order to make yourself better.

I purchased this as a companion to her book, "Codependent No More." It was definitely a book from GOD! It is helping me so much and I've had it less than a week.
Anyone with addicts in their family or close circle of friends owes it to themselves to read this and her other book as well.
It will answer questions you didn't realize you had.
VERY HELPFUL AND HEALING!!
I thank God for leading me to purchase it.

I purchased this workbook along with the original "Codependent No More" book. My issue with this workbook (and even in the original book) is that it is very religious based. I am not religious, so some of the activities in the workbook are hard for me to do. It is based on a 12 step program, and almost every step has to do with God. I wanted to return the book, but it would have cost just as much to send it back as I paid for it, so I am trying to work through the book by replacing "God" with "Higher Power" or the universe.

After I fell apart after a relationship, I found out i was codependent. This book really helps to explain the whys of the illness. There was a lot there that really sounded like they were talking about me in my situation. Great stuff.

I am working through this book and finding it very useful to help me work through a lot of things in my life. It's helping bring up things that have been unresolved in my life and helping me be a healthier person. I am realizing that all of my "issues" point back to my problem with codependency. This book, in conjunction with the Codependent No More book and with the daily meditations have been well worth the purchase. I would definitely recommend this book, but I think that anyone who buys this book would have to be prepared to take a fearless inventory of themselves... to let others go and invest all of their desire for change on self. It's a very hard thing to begin the process of change. But having started it myself, I feel that God is using these books to help me finally wake up. I feel like I'm waking up for the very first time in my life.

Format: Paperback
This doesn't replace the "CoDA 12 Steps/12 Traditions Workbook", but the "Codependent No More Workbook" is certainly a good supplement. Anyone who's working with the CoDA workbook knows it has a tendency to be thin in places. The readings tend to end a bit too early. And sometimes you want some more questions on a specific step. Beattie's book is very good for supplying additional material. It's also an unfortunate reality that sponsors are often unavailable in CoDA programs, leaving a lot of us without that guidance. While we don't rely on outside literature as our primary source, some additional materials definitely helps to fill in some blanks.

Whoo! The workbook is finally available on Amazon, so here's a link...

A very good companion and reinforcement of the book.Helps to explain the authors point.Good advice for using the 12 step programs, and finally it keeps that reader thinking about themselves.I read Co-Dependent about 38 yrs ago without the workbook and find it much easier to get the full meaning of the book using the workbook.
