ACoA Laundry List
« on: December 04, 2014, 04:17:12 AM »
I went to ACoA meetings thirty years ago (eek! - 30??!!) and grew a lot then through that and by working with my Adult Children of Alcoholics counselor.
Today, I was poking around for more materials online.
I'm not a big fan of the 12-step program because I have "higher power" issues, however, there is a considerable amount of material that may still be helpful.
I found this booklet on the Laundry List and was validated by reading it. Some steps, I have left in my wake. Others linger.
There are reflective questions throughout the book as well. Note that it is not only for ACoA, but children of dysfunctional families in general.

Thanks for sharing - wow, a lot of those ring very true for me.

I also have a large issue with the "higher power" aspect of it. I wonder if it will ever evolve beyond that.

Thanks for the link. This was veeery interesting, especially with all the opposites, and then the opposites of the opposites.
