I like co-dependent. I think it is a broader term not limited to children of alcoholics. Many of my closest friends are co-dependents for other reasons (parents were neurotic/unpredictable, drug addicts, etc.) and the term adult children of alcoholics excludes those who we have a lot in common with. It also sets up an artificial divide between alcoholics and children of alcoholics, when many times we have the same root issue of co-dependence resulting from growing up in an alcoholic home. I think it describes us as having issues in relationships with other people without making us a product of them. I used to say "recovering people pleaser" before I discovered adult children of alcoholics, but okay selfescent is pretty awesome. is now following The Typepad Team
