ACOA Relationship Savior

As an ACOA whose had many failed relationships I found this book very insightful and helpful. This book explained complex feelings in a simple easy to understand format. This book is great for ACOA as well as their partners.

This book is very helpful

I can relate to every word
The struggle and the emotions that I have are normal for my experience with my childhood. I can look to make the changes to my life now.

Another good one

Just like her prior book Adult Children of Alcoholics, this is an insightful book, although, once again, it lacks solutions to the problems.

A quick overview

This book is like a quick guide for someone who has found them selves in a relationship with an ACOA. Its a good book for people to pick up if you want to understand how an ACOA functions in, not just intimate relationships, but friendships as well.

Excellent Read (Listen)

I couldn't wait to keep listening. This book is a short read with the perfect amount of information for not just "COA's" but everyone else in this world. All can benefit from listening to this!
She has a second book out which goes in to even more detailed explanations, which is great as well.

interesting

I found some very interesting things in there that I found out about myself that I did not know. I realized that because I was an adult child of an alcoholic I was pretty much a doormat. I will work on that!
