My parents are both alcoholics, I lived with only one growing up (the abuser). I had a decade-long relationship out of high school that really baffled me. I was disgusted by this person and they didn't treat me well, me being with them pushed others away, and I couldn't understand my undying loyalty to them or why I stayed out of pity instead of love. I also have issues with impulse control to some extent and I fail to take care of myself. I also had a hard time understanding why my role in the family was different from that of my siblings. I knew the answers somewhat, but having them put into clinical terms makes it so easy to identify and move forward in life. My life has done a complete 180 since I had these realizations last year. It's empowering knowing where your behaviors comes from, how to identity behaviors that don't serve you well, and how to act in a manner that doesn't allow your childhood to dictate the rest of your life.
I randomly found the first edition at a yard sale and it's a good first step towards healing. Basic info, but sometimes you have to start at the basics.
RECOMMEND: I don't like alcohol, my dad is AA, but I have never understood the drinking obsssion. So I grew thinking I was out of the scope of AA specially because dad stopped drinking when I was 9. But now I realized at 32 years old that I am very compulsive and cannot have a balanced approach towards work, food, shopping: it has to be always at the extreme, else is not worth the experience. So I arrived to this book and I see I comply to seven of the 13 characteristics of adult children of alcoholics. THEN I recommend this book anyone who has lived with an alcoholic person.
WHY 5 STARS: Based upon its utility for a person in similar circumstances.
