Tips for Communicating with Someone Who Has an Addiction
#2 - Be as Predictable as Possible
Addicts tend to have unstable lives and can behave in unpredictable ways. Do your best to model good behavior by being consistent and predictable. Avoid surprising them, since surprises can be stressful and stress feeds addiction.
#3 - Set Boundaries
Remember: you must take care of yourself before you can help anyone else. Set limits for yourself and make sure the other person knows your limits. There’s no shame in taking time for yourself or giving yourself space.
