"What you are about to read was created from a space of love and gratitude for a Program that has saved countless lives physically, emotionally, and spiritually". "Strengthening my Recovery" is a Daily Affirmation and Meditation book written by and for the Adult Children of Alcoholics / Dysfunctional Families (ACA and ACoA) Fellowship. The seeds of this book were planted during the final development of the Fellowship Text, also know as the Big Red Book (BRB).
The Workbook expands the brief description of the "Other" or Opposite Laundry List (BRB, p. 8). It contains concise questions to guide the recovering adult child in reliving actual episodes that produced feelings of inferiority, shame, guilt, and anger (emotional intoxication). This workbook outlines a recovery process for healing the injury and conflict caused by childhood trauma and its continued reenactment, and for withdrawing from emotional intoxication.
