Adult Children of Alcoholics
Christmas can be a very happy and loving time for many people but unfortunately it is not necessarily true for everyone. It is a time of increased demands and pressures that often push people to sooth or cope with the help of different substances. Substance use is often part of a much larger personal and family dynamic. That being said, I have recently been reminded of a book I read many years ago, Adult Children of Alcoholics by Janet Woititz.
The book was very popular at the time and it remains one of the more helpful documents for people trying to understand their present conditions and their existing behaviours. If alcohol is part of your personal experience or someone close to you then I recommend Janet’s book and the many many resources available on the internet … just google “Adult Children of Alcoholics” to find more information
