In its broadest sense, codependency can be defined as an addiction to people, behaviors, or things. Codependency is the fallacy of trying to control interior feelings by controlling people, things, and events on the outside. To the codependent,control or lack of it is central to every aspect of life. In the case of a caustic relationship The codependent may be addicted to another person. In this interpersonal codependency, the codependent has become so elaborately embedded in the other person that the sense of self, and personal identity is severely restricted,devoured by that other person’s identity and problems. Additionally, codependents can be like vacuum cleaners gone wild,drawing to themselves not just another person, but also chemicals (alcohol or drugs, primarily) or things - money, food, sexuality, work. They struggle relentlessly to fill the great emotional vacuum within themselves. This show examines codependent character traits, and the relationships they fuel, as well as the destruction it does to both parties in the relationship.
