    A must read if you, a friend or a family member (past or present) suffered from alcoholism or the effects of a loved ones alcoholism. You'll be surprised how this issue effects families generations later even when alcoholism is no longer obviously present. Easy, fast read for anyone.

    Continuing on my spree of ACoA books... Finished on Christmas morning, 1:30 am, in a luxurious, big bathtub after drinking champagne with friends. This is the section that was a breakthrough to me: "ACoAs who have been emotionally abandoned have good reason to fear abandonment as adults. They have been abandoned, time and time again, as children. The message that they got from their parents was the same as those ACoAs who were physically abandoned. You are in the way and not wanted. Abandonment spa Continuing on my spree of ACoA books... Finished on Christmas morning, 1:30 am, in a luxurious, big bathtub after drinking champagne with friends. This is the section that was a breakthrough to me: "ACoAs who have been emotionally abandoned have good reason to fear abandonment as adults. They have been abandoned, time and time again, as children. The message that they got from their parents was the same as those ACoAs who were physically abandoned. You are in the way and not wanted. Abandonment sparks fear in the child. If we try to view the world as a child, we can get a sense of what this fear is like. A child cannot take care of him- or herself. Without adults--parents, in most cases--children would not survive. This is not a theory. A two-year-old child left to its own devices would die. Kids are not capable of taking care of themselves, and they know it. Children may not be able to verbalize the fear of their parents' leaving and not coming back, but that fear is there. A child, when abandoned, experiences a fear that is primal. It is the fear of not surviving--the fear of dying" (34).

    I found this book when cleaning up the belongings of a loved one who had recently passed away. I think it was left on purpose as explanation. It described much of their behavior. I think it is useful not only for those that had Alcoholic parents, but for those around them.

    This book, recommended by my therapist, (at last a therapist who figured it out), has saved my life.

    Found this gem at a going-out-of-business sale at a local used bookstore and I am quite impressed. This book is from the 80s and is right about so many aspects of healing from CPTSD resulting from growing up in a home with alcoholic parents. I skimmed through parts of it that I felt didn’t apply to me but I’d recommend this to anyone who seems to get caught up in codependent relationships, empaths, or sufferers of narcissistic abuse.
