They might be for a bank, for customer service with a manufacturer, customer support for your computer, that kind of thing.Premium numbers are the more expensive of the two options, and these are often used for things like TV competitions (voting on the X Factor), for weather forecasts, as well as “adult” calls like dating or sex chat lines.Snooping through the addict's belongings, calling multiple times a day to check the addict's whereabouts, telling the addict's therapist how to treat the addict, are all understandable responses to trauma, but can actually be re-traumatizing, in addition to shifting the focus from where it needs to be: on the co-addict. Even if she decides to stay, she needs to set personal goals that will enhance her life.

We’re talking about premium rate calling numbers, and there are many reasons why you might want to call these.
It used to be that you had no idea how much these numbers were going to cost you, but the law has changed, and there are now stricter rules about how much operators can charge.
The disclosure is crucial: the co-addict needs to know the extent of her partner's addiction in order to decide whether she can stay in the marriage. Their own needs, wants, and values are often obscured by years of self-neglect due to "other focus." Further, it is draining living with someone whose attention is always elsewhere. This means individual therapy with a sex addiction specialist, 12-step groups geared for partners such as COSA, therapist-facilitated partner support groups, and psychoeducation about co-addiction. The discovery of the addict's behavior is intensely traumatic.
The partner must shift her focus from the addict to her own mental, emotional, and physical health. Although co-addicts are never responsible for the addict's actions, they need to learn why they chose the addict and how they might have used their obsession with the addict to keep themselves from focusing on their own lives. Co-addicts often become hypervigilant, trying to control the addict to prevent further trauma.
