Here is the Addiction Blog Roundup for this week. Enjoy your reading!
Alcoholism and Blaming Others
Maggie Harmon is writing this week over at addictionblog.org about alcoholism and blaming others. She makes a great point when she says about the addicts: “…their behavior, their actions, their choices are their own…”.
How To Spot Manipulation
Over at breakingthecycles.com, Darlene Lancer is talking about how to spot manipulation. She defines manipulation as a way to covertly influence someone with indirect, deceptive, or abusive tactics. All of us can use additional skills to recognize that behavior.
The Truth Will Set You Free
Rubin Khoddam is writing about speaking your truth over at psychologytoday.com. He notes that we should speak our truth “…for better AND for worse…”. This is so true, especially when struggling with our own, or secondhand addiction.
The 12 Steps in Reverse
Finally for this week, over at thefix.com, Juliet Abram is talking about working the 12 Steps in reverse. She notes that everyone is very capable and that “Each fall, each slip, each stumble requires determination to rise back up and try again.” This is true for all of us regardless of our current spot in the world.
Have a great weekend!
