Finding the willingness to admit that we need help can be one of the greatest challenges we ever face, It can also be the most rewarding when we finally realize that we are sick and tired of being sick and tired, we open a door to unlimited possibilities for change, for hope, and for a happier, healthier life.
Al-Anon is a welcoming fellowship of men, women, and children from every walk of life.
In Al-Anon we find the encouragement, help and support we've been seeking.
What a miraculous feeling to discover that many, many others do understand what we are going through.
As incredible as it may sound, in these meetings we encounter people who have known the same fear and suffering, the confusion and the despair that we have, yet by coming together and sharing their experience, strength and hope, they are able to move beyond the pain and begin to build better, happier lives.
“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."
