Living with an alcoholic parent: the book which reveals all the secrets to overcoming your anxious mind through self-discovery
It’s reported over 3 million children live with an alcoholic parent in the UK (NACOA) Of that figure 24.5% end up suffering with mental health problems either as a child or later into their adult life as problems go undetected in the early stages of suffering or when the victim feels like they have no one to turn too.
To help sufferers come to terms with what they have gone through, passionate writer and personal sufferer Jo Huey, aged 41, has written a book about her life with her alcoholic father.
The book named ‘Transition: one woman’s journey from trauma to triumph’ offers help and support for those who find it difficult to reach out or for those who are struggling to find the right kind of support.
Jo says, “supporting others with a similar story will hopefully limit the number of children and adults needing to seek mental health help from the NHS”.
Jo also expresses her passion for wanting to create a support community for sufferers – making people realise they aren’t alone and they can reach out to others who have experienced similar.
Jo also says, “living in an alcoholic home for the best part of my life until my father kicked me out at 16 years old left me experiencing PTSD, anxiety and other mental health issues into my adult life”.
Her father’s alcoholism and dangerous home life shaped her childhood, family dynamics and other relationships, which is expressed in her honest and brutal account.
She aims to allow others to gain an insight into the impact of living with an alcoholic, and allow others to connect with how she managed to change her life through coping mechanisms and a great support network.
Jo’s book is now available to purchase online on Amazon here for £10.99 and on Kindle for £6.49.
Jo offers a wider range of online inspirational advice and support from blog posts, videos, workshop dates and much more via her website http://www.johuey.co.uk, newsletters and her Facebook page. Email Jo at firstname.lastname@example.org to find out how to receive more advice and support.
