It affects your health

And here is yet another way codependency is an addiction: it affects your health. Like with finances, there are many ways it can do this. Some examples include that you begin to eat and drink in an unhealthy manner, because that’s how your partner does, because you just want to feel accepted, or you take up drinking and smoking, because your partner does those things. Perhaps you even contract an STD because the idea of using a condom angers your partner and you don’t want to anger him.
