Misti B.’s incisive and irreverent meditations offer daily doses of humor, healing, and hope for the tragedies, triumphs, and everyday aggravations that come with codependency.

If You Leave Me, Can I Come with You? proves that we can laugh at ourselves and still take our recovery seriously. Infusing hard-earned wisdom with self-revealing honesty and fearless humor, Misti B. shines a healing light into the confusions and contradictions, as well as the self-defeating thoughts and actions, that codependents and those in Al-Anon frequently face.

Misti’s refreshingly original daily meditations tackle issues such as people-pleasing, lack of boundaries, and perfectionism. On this yearlong journey, she shows how these habits don’t have to overwhelm us if we work a solid Twelve Step program—and learn to take ourselves lightly. This book delivers the right mix of support, inspiration, and irreverence.

Misti B. is a writer, producer, and seasoned traveler along the arduous road of recovery. As a writer, she has worked in television, film, and live theater. Her recovery writing, characterized by courageous humor combined with on-point wisdom and heartfelt compassion, has helped thousands face everyday struggles and stress with less fear and more hope.
