Upon recommendation, I read this nearly every day for about 3 years (back in the mid-1990s). It really helped me overcome a lot of the dysfunctional beliefs I had at the time. It was a great comfort and helped make me a more healthy person. Now and then, I'd like to start reading it daily again, but the spine is completely broken. I may buy another copy.

A solid, grounded affirmations book for anyone in recovery.

Daily affirmations that address those hidden places we forget about and that guide our lives. Every inner child was undoubtedly wounded in some way (well, that's my experience. I only knew one person who said her childhood was perfect and her life turned out challenging.)

Anyway, this is a great way to start the day. I leave it by on the dining table by the side of my place mat.

Although my parents weren't alcoholics, there was a lot of mental & emotional abuse in the house. Me and my inner child enjoyed most of the affirmations as we're tired of life being threatening and chaotic. I still read them occasionally, years after reading the book.
