Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
I particularly enjoyed this book because it is written with a spin.

Whereas most books on codependency teach about what it means to be codependent, this books go beyond that, and speaks directly to the adult children of alcoholics, who are interested in breaking the cycles of codependency in their families, so that they can spare their children from the painful grips that keep codependents bound.

Neither of my parents drank, but both of them are adult children of alcoholics. Sadly they were unable to break the cycles of codependency in their lives, and they infused me with a fear of --well--everything. My thoughts did not matter, and I was made to feel guilty--all the time--when I ever found the courage to tell the truth.

But because my parents didn't drink, and because they tried so hard to be perfect, this made it impossible for me to figure out what was wrong in our seemingly perfect house...Although everything looked right, everything just felt so wrong....

I am thankful I figured out what was wrong, and I believe I have broken the cycle of codependency...

I even wrote a book about it...

My children are independent thinkers, who are not attached to perfectionism...and for that I am so very grateful...

Yes--if you are struggling and aware--that you need help to end the cycles of codependency in your life, read this book...
