I didn't realize how dysfunction can take a toll on the members of a family. This really opened my eyes in understanding why people of addiction and codependency really have struggles. A great book.

From the back cover: "STRUGGLE FOR INTIMACY is part of a life-long process, says Janet Woititz in this best-selling guide to successful relationships. For those who have grown up with alcoholism or dysfunction in the home, it is especially difficult. To be intimate, to be close, to be vulnerable, contradicts all the survival skills learned by children of alcoholics. Acquiring intimacy skills requires a complete relearning process and is a difficult task, but not an insurmountaable one.
-You need to learn what a healthy relationship is.
-You need to learn how to achieve one.
-You need to change habits that do not work.
-Struggle is inevitable. Mistakes are inevitable. Discouragement is inevitable.
-However, so is-sharing, loving, enhancement, joy, excitement, companionship, understanding, cooperation, trusting, growth, security and serenity."
