Video: The Process of Recovery for Adult Children of Alcoholics

I don’t think it’s possible to have recovery without talking about the past. And the purpose of talking about the past is to be able to put the past behind. One talks about the past to be able to undo the denial process. I don’t think it’s possible to be honest about what’s going on in my life today, in the here and the now, when I had to minimize, discount and rationalize the first five, ten, fifteen or twenty years of my life.
