The Twelve Promises of Co-Dependents Anonymous

  1. I can expect a miraculous change in my life by working the program of Co-Dependents Anonymous. As I make an honest effort to work the Twelve Steps and follow the Twelve Traditions...
  2. I know a new sense of belonging. The feeling of emptiness and loneliness will disappear.
  3. I am no longer controlled by my fears. I overcome my fears and act with courage, integrity and dignity.
  4. I know a new freedom.
  5. I release myself from worry, guilt, and regret about my past and present. I am aware enough not to repeat it.
  6. I know a new love and acceptance of myself and others. I feel genuinely lovable, loving and loved.
  7. I learn to see myself as equal to others. My new and renewed relationships are all with equal partners.
  8. I am capable of developing and maintaining healthy and loving relationships. The need to control and manipulate others will disappear as I learn to trust those who are trustworthy.
  9. I learn that it is possible to mend - to become more loving, intimate and supportive. I have the choice of communicating with my family in a way which is safe for me and respectful of them.
  10. I acknowledge that I am a unique and precious creation.
  11. I no longer need to rely solely on others to provide my sense of worth.
  12. I trust a guidance I receive from my higher power and come to believe in my own capabilities.
  13. I gradually experience serenity, strength, and spiritual growth in my daily life.
