Millions of people are affected by the cocaine addiction of someone else. The following questions are designed to help you decide whether or not CO-ANON is for you:
If you answered "YES" to four or more questions, then CO-ANON is for you. Attend as many meetings as possible and use the CO-ANON lifeline to find out more -- you are in the right place.
- Do you try to monitor someone else's cocaine use?
- Is your main concern how to get someone else to stop using cocaine?
- Do you have money problems because of someone else's cocaine use?
- Do you feel your problem is unlike anyone else's?
- Do you threaten to leave the addict if they don't stop using?
- Do you feel if the addict stopped using, the problem would go away?
- Do you search for hidden vials, razor blades, straws, paraphernalia?
- Do you feel like your life is in order and only the addict has a problem?
- Have you considered calling the addict's dealers, the authorities, an intervention unit?
