    Adult Children of Alcoholics-How To Heal Our Toxic Vibrations

    in Relationships

    It is not uncommon for adult children of alcoholics to attract energy beings who are very similar to their parents.  It is quite common in fact for adult children to attract alcoholics as partners and to have children with drug and alcoholc issues.  I hear some wondering, "But how could this be? I did not drink, and I hated my father who was an alcoholic.  How could I have attracted a spouse who drinks and have children who drink and do drugs?"  The reality Dear One, is that we attract what we are on a vibrational level, and your childhood experiences have created certain emotional set points.  These set points are no different than a radio station.  So like moths to a flame, children who have been abused by alcoholics are tuned up for alcoholics.  Why? Because ACoA's understand the dysfunctional love language of an alcoholic, and or narcissistic, denial based being.  While a non-codependent being would avoid alcoholics whose actions might not match what is comign out of his/her mouth, and ACoA sees these beings as needing sympathy, help, or love.  In addition, because their idea of love is evasive, complicated and confusing, ACoA's match up their energies perfectly with beings who are more than willing to be evasice, complicated and confusing.  Taking a Toxic Vibrational Fast is a Fast Pass Way to Facilitate Emotional Healing.

    Adult Children Of Alcoholics

    in Lifestyle

    Did you grow up in a home with a problem drinker? If you did, you may have been impacted more than you know. Adult Children of Alcoholics share several common characteristics. They tend to feel different or isolated and uneasy with other people. They are intimidated by authority figures or people who are angry. They seek approval from others and lose themselves in the process. They are people-pleasers.


    They feel responsible for other people and put their needs before their own. They are terrified of abandonment, and will do almost anything to maintain a relationship even (or especially) if it is unhealthy. They tend to hide their feelings both as children and as adults. They often confuse love with pity and tend to love people they can rescue. They thrive on drama rather than healthy relationships because that is what they grew up with. They often become alcoholics, marry alcoholics or both. The list goes on.


    On this episode of The Bubble Hour our guests will share their experience both with growing up in an alcoholic home and in a home with someone in recovery.

    Children of Alcoholics: The Hidden Pain

    in Family

    Dr. Cathy Reimers, Ph.D., psychologist in New Jersey, and co-host Jennifer Russello, parent in New Jersey, continue the discussion on alcoholism in the American family and the impact that alcoholic parents have on children in their youth and into adulthood.  Last week we discussed the hidden secret of alcoholism amongst parents, especially mothers and the growing numbers of women in general that are suffering and hiding their alcoholism. Alcoholism is one of the most contributing factors to dysfunction in a family. Sadly, this cycle often continues as studies show that children of alcoholics often suffer from some form of addiction and most commonly become addicted to alcohol or drugs. We will discuss the different roles that children take in their alcoholic families and what can be done to help these kids now and into their adulthood. The "perfect family storm" of alcoholism creates turmoil for everyone in its path and no one in the family escapes its effects.  There is no place for the children to hide.

    in Current Events

    Reports, NPR, a "Critic Faults Alcoholics Anonymous For Lack Of Evidence."  Plus, a recent story in the New York Times asks, "Do Alcoholics Anonymous participants do better at abstinence than nonparticipants because they are more motivated? Or is it because of something inherent in the A.A. program?"  Plus AA is not commenting, as they have "no opinion on outside issues"


    Plus, guest co-host Antoine Nauleau drops by to dicuss the new dating app, Sober. Explains Nauleau, "An average of 12%-14% of the population is sober, and with the emergence of “healthy lifestyles” and the rate of addiction climbing, there has been an increase in people choosing to live sober. People in sobriety tend to socialize mainly among themselves, due to the support and commonality of one another, and to avoid tempting or dangerous situations..."

AA is the GOLD Standard of treatment...or is it a dangerous cult, quasi religous pods from the 1930's that has no training, no real leaders , except the big suits in NYC Headquarters. AND Yes AA is connected from NY to each of its groups.

Be it SMART RECOVERY, SOS, WFS, The Sinclair Method, Moderation, Hams Harm Reduction or YOGA....Please for GOd's sake lets move on from the DAYS of Wine and Roses.
