Although not formally a member of this group I posted in one of the threads, and I hope that's ok.

If not, I will delete.

For the record, I grew up as a single child in a home with an alcoholic parent. I've struggled with the results of that for over 45 years.

6. Welcome, Adsos Letter

All of us here have had to deal with the effects of addiction in one way or another. One thing that I've learned during 10 years in AA is that it's important and helpful to talk about it - especially with those with similar experiences.

I'm also a member of ACOA, Adult Children of Alcoholics. Some in the group I attend also belong to AA, some don't - and not everyone had alcoholic parents, some just grew up in dysfunctional families. Anyone who's struggling with these issues - and some were long ago - are welcome there.

If you're interested in reading more about it or seeing if there's a group in your area, here's the link. In the meantime, I hope you feel comfortable in this group. You're among friends here.
