Are You Enabling Someone with His Drug or Alcohol Addiction?
Sometimes parents and relatives are making the person's addiction worst. This is not intentional or with the knowledge that they are doing so. It is just a natural mechanism of moms and dads to protect their children.
The life of a person addicted to drugs or alcohol is always bringing consequences. It can be physical, monetary, legal, etc. When someone protects an addict from these consequences. It just sends a message that there will never be any negative consequences of their acts. It will never have to be responsible so why stopping!
Always let the addict being responsible for their actions!
Another way of enabling an addict is to give them money. Never give them any money. They are asking money for food. Go buy them food. They have a bill to pay. Pay the bill yourself or do not pay it, so they will start being affected by their drug use.
An addict will use every single door that is opened to them to maintain their addiction. When you leave doors opened. It means you are enabling them with their use.
