Item description for Daily Affirmations for Adult Children of Alcoholics by Rokelle Lerner...
Overview Offers advice for the children of alcoholics on how to deal with emotional problems
The messages that we give to ourselves are the most important messages we hear. The internal briefings and conversations we hold determine our attitudes, our behavior and the course of our lives. If, as children, we were criticized and shamed, our internal dialogue will be self-deprecating. If we are used to large doses of self-imposed sarcasm and negative reviews of our daily performance, we gradually mutilate our self-esteem, our creativity and our spirit.
As adult children of alcoholics, we can continue to remain in the past and believe the negatives that we were taught; or we can change our beliefs with affirmative thoughts that can set us free into better and more expansive experiences. What we choose to believe will ultimately rule our world.
Affirmations are a way to wake us up--to make us fully conscious and aware of the daily choices we make. And, as we learn to direct our thoughts, our feelings and behavior will naturally follow.

Reviews - What do customers think about Daily Affirmations for Adult Children of Alcoholics?
A Perfect Way to Start Each Day. Aug 23, 2006
This book of Daily Affirmations is a perfect companion book to any daily meditation books, yet also stands alone and is as powerful as can be. Each day holds a new key for overcoming the negative things I grew up with so that my todays might be postive, uplifting, and hopeful. A true gem of a book.
Ideal for any Adult Child Aug 6, 2006
Whether you grew up in a home with alcoholic parents, or simply in ANY tough enviroment -- divorce, single parent home, etc. -- this book shares valuable insights with anyone who finds themselves struggling in adulthood. The advice isn't pithy or cliched, but instead candid and wise. The book gives the reader practical and philosophical daily reminders about self-worth, healing, grounding, focusing and generally living a healthier, fuller life.
Annotation Oct 31, 2005
"Affirmations are a way to discover personal awareness, growth and spiritual potential, and self-regard. Reading this book gives us an opportunity to nurture ourselves."--Barnes & Noble
emotionally abused Oct 11, 2005
No one in my family is an Alcoholic, so when a new friend inquired about this I was a bit surprised. The new friend has been a legal drug abuser and there are other alcoholics and drug abusers in her family. Then later I read a list of attributes of Emotionally Abused persons 'symptoms' they were taken from Adult Children of Alcoholics. My friend shared this book with me. This book is wonderful for anyone that needs help standing up for themselves and seeing value in themselves. This isn't to be selfish. I would urge anyone with low self esteem to read this book. Glenda
The Best "Affirmation Format" book I have used. Jul 19, 2005
This order represented my 2nd copy of this book. My first was purchased approximately 15 years ago--I wore it out. As an ACOA, I have owned and routinely used several day-to-day, affirmation/devotional type books. All have been very helpful; however, I find this one so much more healing for me as it speaks so directly to the problems I have experienced with periodic depression, hopelessness, fear and anxiety. Rokelle Lerner obviously knows this "syndrome" thoroughly and how to help one reach for and attain the positive thoughts and attitudes that lead to healing.
