A discussion of twelve common “rules” for avoiding closeness.  This pamphlet is an excellent resource for enhancing relationships!

“For those in recovery from addiction, or people who grew up in alcoholic families, the prospect of having intimate relationships can be terrifying. Before we can connect with others in a healthy way, we may need to acknowledge the rules we have learned to avoid closeness – and do our best to break them. This pamphlet provides guidance for breaking negative rules and developing positive ones, and it explores the roots of intimacy, which we can nurture by developing trust, self-esteem, assertiveness and boundaries.
