The Personal Adult Child of an Alcoholic Bill of Rights

1. Life should have choices beyond mere survival
2. I have a right to say no to anything when I do not feel ready or when it's unsafe
3. Life should not be motivated by fear
4. I have a right to all of my feelings
5. I am probably not guilty
6. I have a right to make mistakes
7. There is no need to smile when I cry
8. I have the right to terminate conversations with people who make me feel diminished or humiliated
9. I can be healthier than those around me
10. It's okay for me to be relaxed, playful and frivolous
11. I have a right to change and grow
12. It is important to set limits and to take care of myself
13. I can be angry with someone I love
14. I can take care of myself, no matter what circumstances I am in
15. I do not have to be fully healed to be fully worthwhile
16. I do not have to be perfect to be perfectly happy
17. I do not have to be perfect, period. No one else is.
