Am I an enabler?

Any behavior on your part that allows a friend or family member to continue destructive behaviors is enabling. You are an enabler if you willingly ignore a drug problem, make their life easier when they aren’t addressing their problem, or you regularly make excuses for their behavior to help them save face.

Enabling addiction is not intentional, but changing your behavior is the best thing you can do both for your loved one and for yourself.
