EPISODE 4 of my “CAL Chat” podcast is now available to listen to! How is alcoholism a disease of extremes? What does the term “Adult Child” mean? Am I trapped in a compulsive need? (To hear this episode, please visit the show’s website at: calchatpodcast.com – or you can subscribe to it for free wherever you get your podcasts & you’ll be notified every time a new episode is posted. 📲 🔔)
In part 1 of 2, Jan talks about her favorite section, pages 14-15, from the book “From Survival to Recovery: Growing Up in an Alcoholic Home” (item # B-21). She shares which qualities of an Adult Child of an alcoholic that she identifies with, what a literature study group is like, & how this book can touch members of Alcoholics Anonymous too! As she says, “You gotta feel it, before you can heal it!”
In part 2 of 2, the conversation with Jan continues with her favorite piece of outreach literature, the leaflet/questionnaire: “Did You Grow Up With A Problem Drinker?” (item # S-25). This can be an eye-opening piece for people that realize they experienced the effects of alcoholism in their family, rather than just in their current relationship. We discuss ways it can be used for outreach, workshops, & as a barometer for our recovery progress. Find out what is like peanut butter & chocolate, & what we’d like to see on a bumper sticker!
