Did you find the Disclosure workbooks helpful as you prepared?

PARTNER: Yes. Initially I thought that some of the exercises were not necessary, but they were. It was especially helpful for me to realize what support I had and needed and how to get that.

ADDICT: Yes. I hate being told how to do things. I can often agree with an aim (such as disclosure) but I know how to live my life and can make my own decisions, right? Right — but where has that approach got me?! It was good medicine for me to just try to relax and accept that someone knew better than me and to accept that I had to do things other than my way. Finally, I started to accept that my way just got me into big trouble and always had.
