Adult Child

I'm an adult child of an alcoholic and am currently in a new relationship. My best friend tells me that I have issues with trust and control. I think she may be right. After all of these years, how can I open myself up to trust other people?

As you can see this is a brand new forum. I have posted a link to a thread in the Alanon Forum that is still active about the issue of trust. There are alot of good people around here with some very thoughtful points of view.

Give it a read and feel free to join in!

Hi Catherine and welcome!

I'm glad you found us and I hope you stay around! I'm ACoA also and I definitely have trust and control issues. It's been an eye opener to uncover various traits of mine that are a result from growing up in an alcoholic household.

Take care and keep coming back!
