Welcome to the Rum and Robots Blog!

We can flourish as adult children of alcoholics (ACoA) although all our tribulations have been exceedingly unique. Many of our stories bring to mind something comparable to a nightmarish fairy tale.  However, I truly believe that our challenges engender an immense strength that resides within us. We can utilize our heightened sense of intuition, compassion, and ability to literally shine!  We are blooming, resilient, and unbeaten warriors, living today in this moment, in this day and in this lifetime!

    1. Hi Sovely I first want to congratulate you on your award. It is a gift to be recognized by our fellow bloggers. Thank you so much for thinking of me. It means so much to me. So very kind of you. After my first blogging award which meant so much I decided to say thank you and let my heart be touched. It took me eight hours to answer the first one because I struggled and agonized over naming people. So please accept my gratitude, love and appreciation. Have a truly blessed week my friend. Love 💕 Joni

      1. Dear Joni, yes, you are right, blogging awards are time consuming and not everyone likes it. After all I always feel it’s worth to share a smile. That’s my attempt, all this positive energy. I want you to know I always enjoy visiting your blog, my dear friend. My best wishes are with you. Love, Sovely

      2. Thank you for understanding it wasn’t the work it was the agonizing about who to nominate. I did it but it took me hours to decide because I feel so blessed to have meet such wonderful people, so that is why. I am grateful and appreciate you Sovely. Thank you for your friendship. Love and hugs Joni

  1. My parents never touched alcohol, but I had friends who had parents who were alcoholics. I started working for an artisan woodworker when I was 15 years old. I learned so many skills from that man that I still use today. He was an alcoholic and it gave me so much pain during the almost three years I worked for him to watch him slowly run the business and his marriage into ruin. I felt so helpless as a teenager with little life experience to say or do anything that would make a difference.

    1. You are very kind. Even as a teenager you could see the tragedy around you from the alcohol abuse. Sounds like you were an extremely perceptive teenager. I am so glad you were spared that nightmare growing up. Thank you so much for your kind and sensitive comments. Love and hugs Joni. 🌸🌺
