“I was tortured with guilt at having become just like my mother, and I wasn’t drinking. I went to Al-Anon at the suggestion of a hospital counselor. He helped me to see that many of my resentments were a result of having lived with alcoholism. He said at Al-Anon I could talk to people who would understand my mixed feelings about my mother.” Al-Anon Sharings from Adult Children/p. 5

The Al-Anon book ‘The Dilemma of the Alcoholic Marriage' put into words what I strived to discover about myself. It opened my eyes to my self-worth, the importance of honesty and the necessity to communicate my feelings in order to have a rich and fulfilling life." "Communicating with Honesty," “The Forum" magazine November 2017
