Festivities are complete, New Year's parties have passed and the days are short and cold. For those of us who have lived with addiction, it is often a time to want to crawl into bed and hide. This is the time for extra special care. Take time for you. Try these 3 simple approaches to self care:

1. Remind yourself that your loved one's addiction is not your fault.

2. Take a book to a cozy coffee shop. Read for half an hour.

3. Have a massage, a manicure, a pedicure. 

Most of all - remember that you are worth it. The more you focus on yourself rather than on the addict, the better you will feel.
