A Guide To Naming Behaviors

Understanding Type 1 and Type 2 behaviors when you love someone suffering from addiction

Here’s the thing: when you love someone suffering from addiction, from one moment to the next can feel so different. You may feel like you’re dealing with Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, because, at the drop of a hat, it seems like your partner has transformed into a different person. 

Loving someone suffering from addiction is chaotic, out of control, and traumatic. We believe that you’re not powerless over this disease, and even though it is very hard, there are ways to take back your power. 

Understand their behaviors, and being able to name them for what they are can be helpful for you, and your partner. Naming behaviors is a way of being honest with yourself about what’s really going on. And when you can identify these behaviors as ‘Type 1’ or ‘Type 2’, then you can act accordingly.

Imagine what it would feel like to:

  • Know exactly how to prepare when you see Type 1 or Type 2 behaviors 
  • Take back your power that addiction has been stealing all along 
  • Know that you’re doing the right thing and you’re not crazy 
  • Rediscover that you have complete control over yourself and your reactions, no matter what they’re doing.

You can discover how to identify these behaviors and react accordingly. Learn how to start making improvements in your own personal happiness and joy, and even see changes in your relationship. Learn exactly how to do this with our brand-new digital guidebook: A Guide To Naming Behaviors.
