My name is John and I come from a very dysfunctional family including criminals, addicts and some plain old weirdos. My family tree includes two alcoholic grandparents and an alcoholic father and brother. I have an uncle in prison serving a life sentence for murder and another uncle that was murdered while robbing a drug store. My family does not do
My earliest memories include my father exploding into a drunken rage and throwing his dinner across the kitchen. Afterwards, while sporting a black eye, my mother would deny anything was wrong. There was always drama in our home and it was not a safe place to grow up.
Thankfully I found ACA and other support groups to help me let go of the past and move forward.
I’ve wanted to create a magazine style website for many years but never had the courage to follow through on the idea. This website ( is my attempt to express myself creatively with humor and care in hopes of helping others who have grown up in a dysfunctional family.
I highly recommend you go to a support group meeting if you have never been. The care and acceptance found at a 12 step meeting may just change your life. My preference is ACA meetings.
Feel free to send me messages or any suggestions on the contact page.
God Bless You,
