Growing up in an alcoholic or addicted family, can have a profound impact which may not be realized until years later. The feelings, personality traits, and relationship patterns that are developed as a child continue into adulthood and carry over to work, romantic relationships, parenting, and friendships. These patterns, traits, and feelings vary and may show up as anxiety, depression, substance abuse, stress, anger, and relationship problems. Many adult children of alcoholics become very hard-working and goal driven and successful. Some may become codependent or struggle with alcohol or other addictions. Some affects of growing up with an alcoholic family include:
1) Being rigid and inflexible
2) Difficulty trusting and being closed off
3) Shame and loneliness
7) Being highly sensitive
8) Being overly responsible
10) Taking care of or rescuing others even when it hurts you
As a result, the ACoA neglects their own needs, gets into dysfunctional relationships, and allows others to take advantage of their kindness.
