It’s easy to be pulled down by other people around you. Addicts stick together like glue for the most part…a little too close. This chumminess can end up as a heavy weight upon your soul. There are negative aspects to closeness with other people during active addiction.
Do you argue a lot with your best friend, your companion, or other relative/friend whom you use drugs with and/or live with? Does it seem like the arguments are becoming worse and worse as time goes on? This is a typical sign of co-dependency.
