Al-Anon

Welcome.
Al-Anon Family Groups offer understanding, help and support to the families of problem drinkers. We are a fellowship of relatives and friends who share our experience, strength and hope in order to solve common problems. We believe that alcoholism is a family illness and that changed attitudes can aid recovery.

Al-Anon is not allied with any sect, denomination, political entity, organization or institution; does not engage in any controversy, neither endorses nor opposes any cause. There are no dues for membership. Al-Anon is self supporting through its own voluntary contributions, plus the sale of our Conference-approved literature.

Meetings are free, anonymous and confidential. Our primary purpose is to help families of problem drinkers.

We understand as few others can. Your enquiry is confidential and anonymous. If you are concerned about someone's drinking, we encourage you to browse our web site for more information about our program.

    This beginning journey for me as a partner is a struggle. My partner is 45 days sober an she is doing well however the anger I hold inside is killing me. I am trying to learn to pray for both. Thank you for these apps as they are helpful in many ways.

      Hi - I found that gratitude helped. I thank my Higher Power each morning and am able to gain strength and serenity from that. As you work the steps, so the resentment diminishes. Glynnis

    This seems like a great app and I have learned much so far. My husband entered outpatient treatment this week after getting caught drinking at work last Wednesday night. He had been drry for 10 years, but apparently started again a few months ago. I had suspected, but every time I confronted him, he denied and got irritated that I seemed to not trust him. When he quit previously, he did not go through formal treatment, so this is all relatively new and foreign to me. I am going to be attending my first Al Anon meeting on Monday morning and am a bit nervous. I am extremely thankful that we have a cohesive family and that my husband and teenage children are all strong in their faith (as am I). I made a point of telling him that I forgave him immediately when he told me what happened. I think that I may be recognizing alcoholism as a disease process much better than he is at this point, as he is really upset with himself.

    I've been a member of Alanon for many years but have not gone to many meetings in the past 12 months. Been busy and now find myself overwhelmed with life - the business of of it all. And resentful of people who do not seem to work enough and look to be taking it easy. I work 60-70 hours a week. Never thought I would be in this kind of position. It's been hard to Easy Does It. Looking for some ways to stay involved in recovery.

    I have been introduced to something very foriegn AA and Al-anon.
    My partner just entered a treatment facility for 90 days and I am clueless! I read the first 3 chapters of the Big Book and realized I have been
    dating an alcoholic for 3 1/2 years. Could someone please offer suggestions
    on what I need to do. Feel very lost, sad and have no idea how to support the man I love or how to deal with my feelings.

    Jo

      Jo - the best thing you can do for him is to take care of yourself. Al Anon is a wonderful program. Just as the alcoholic is powerless over alcohol, so are we.
