    The recovery process is different for different folks. Twenty-five years after it was first published this book is still relevant to those who grew up in dysfunctional homes. To the degree that none of us have ideal childhoods and to the degree that even an ideal childhood may be a cause for some concern, we are all recovering to some extent or other, in some way or other. Imagine how good you would feel if: you could stand up for yourself without losing your temper; you could make a decision without second guessing yourself; and you didn't have that sense of worthlessness every time someone criticized you. Who would I be?! Jerry has often emphasized that one of the most meaningful ways a caring adult can reach out and support a child is by sitting down together and reading the Kit for Kids.

    Argument, inconsistency, unreliability, and chaos tend to run rampant. Your parents, even if they recover and treat you differently, cannot fix what makes you feel bad about yourself. The group also provides a sense of community, a community of interest which there are few neighbourhood groups nowadays to provide. Most important, we keep learning more about how to break out of old patterns and, in passing these tools on, offer healing to others as we used to spread hurt. Coping and Recovery If you grew up in an alcoholic home, you're probably familiar with the feeling of never knowing what to expect from one day to the next. Use this book to learn how to live a more healthy life.

    Use this book to learn how to live a more healthy life. Through fellowship and the support of ACA's sponsors and peers, as well as the literature, members come to learn that even the most wounded of them has an inner child worthy of love and healing. With addiction now a national health epidemic, and communities across the country struggling with ever-increasing drug overdoses, the impact on children today is staggering. Retreat into the familiar cave of suffering where you huddle with that precious, lonely ache of being unloveable. Not participate with family? The advantage to recognizing this is that you're an adult now and no longer a helpless child.
