20. If the child survives — which some don't — without help, they will become an alcoholic/addict themselves, marry one or both. They will find another compulsive personality such as a workaholic, gambler, over-eater, or sex-addict to fulfill the ironic, irrational and unintended, subconscious need for abandonment than what they are allowing to happen in their own.

You can stop this disease of denial and dysfunction in your home and break the chain of reaction through the generations of your family. If you're an alcoholic or addict, help for recovery is available through the 12-Step groups of Alcoholics Anonymous or other more relavently specific group for your addiction.You may also like my article: How I Learned To Love Myself In Alcoholics Anonymous [EXPERT]

You and your family deserve a better life. Should I Leave My Alcoholic Husband?
