I Just Didn’t Like Al-Anon

“Whenever I go to an Al-Anon meeting, I place myself in an environment conducive to changing my attitudes. In this way, my world is transformed.” – Hope For Today 

When I first attended Al-Anon I wasn’t impressed. In fact, I was uncomfortable. I’m a sober alcoholic that liked drugs too, and Al-Anon was different. I didn’t identify my disease after my name. I wasn’t allowed to mention AA. I just didn’t like it. Eventually though, my need for emotional sobriety outweighed my discomfort and I went back, again and again. Today I get Al-Anon and I love it. Last night’s meeting in Lahaina was awesome. I’m grateful I walked through my initial uneasiness and am open to the peace which that program gives me. ILML!
