I am in group therapy for adult children of alcoholics, also see a counselor once a month. I am learning a lot about myself, and how my behavior effects all my family relationships

that's great! I love learning more about myself. I've never been in group therapy, but it's something I've thought about trying. I was actually "diagnosed" as an Adult Child of Alcoholics, even though my parents aren't alcholics...I guess what they really mean is that a parent can pass their codependency issues onto their kids, making them *like* people who had alcoholic parents, even though it was someone farther back (...but still, the name seems kind of weird to me, and I'd feel like I were lying if I tried to use that label..) good luck in your therapy!

It sounds like you are having a great experience.
