We are told how to spot possible dyslexia, shyness,drug taking, but what would an actual addictive personality look like as a child I wonder?
    You're not being intrusive at all. I'm open with my experiences, because perhaps that will help another going through something similar

    Anyway, to address your questions...

    "the love of a good woman" will go a long way in terms of support for someone recovering but it is not a cure. In fact, it could be detrimental in that the one recovering could use that as a crutch, becoming dependent. That's not healthy for either person in the relationship.

    Your other question about looking out for an addictive personality in children is interesting, and one I've never actually considered So, I don't have an answer for you, as it's typically something you see at onset of drug use, but give me some time and I will do some research and check up on that.

    Using My daughters Login Sorry! Sltpuppy39
    Not butting in, but I have been in recovery for over 14 yrs now, this last 9 have been clean. I have been married to a man in recovery who is the father of 1 of my 3 children. The other 2 have a father who should be! My point is, Children of Addicts are just as likely if not more so to be addicts. It follows the same rule as children of abusers are more likely to be one. There is a pattern in their lives that the see and learn from. Kind of " Monkey see Monkey do". We learn by example as children and if like some of us the example is twisted then ..... You get the Idea. Again this is personal experince and what I have learned over the years doing my own research. Thanks for listening.
