Some examples of co-dependent behavior are:
•Making repeated excuses for someone’s behavior while they are under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
•Questioning whether you are really the “crazy one” when you observe the addicted person’s behaviors.
•Attempts at removing the consequences of a person’s actions as a result of an addiction, thereby allowing them to continue in the same behaviors. For example; paying traffic tickets or calling in sick to work for them.
•Blaming the addicted person’s behaviors on external factors like “she’s been under a lot of stress”
