Al-Anon is a fellowship of people that come together for help, their loved ones drinking is affecting them. It’s often difficult to see someone we care for spiral into addiction. We feel hurt, angry, punitive, sad, and altogether lost in trying a complex problem trying to help them quit. We’ve possibly done inappropriate actions, trying to justify our behaviors will stop our loved ones drinking.
Those feelings and actions can even stick around after one stops drinking. This is why we believe alcoholism and addictions are a family illness.
It’s our own attitudes and actions that need to be questioned and helped sometimes. There are few others that can understand our difficulties and hardships. But Al-Anon does. You will find a feeling of help and freedom from this family illness.
Loved ones can include:
- Children or Grandchildren
