Locus Of Control

"I still get angry at persons like them that change the course of my life without permission." (Ex-wife of drug addict)

- After living with an alcoholic or addict, it is important that the spouse or loved one learn to recognize the importance of moving the "external locus of control" to an "internal locus of control." An external locus of control gives power and control to things outside of yourself. An internal locus of control brings the power and control back inside of you.
