Health knowledge made personal
I'm a long-time member of Al-Anon which is where I continue to recover from the effects of living with alcoholism in family members. It is where I've learned to love myself and make serenity my main goal in life, no matter what is going on. I now have a Greater Power of my own understanding who has helped me along the way, mostly through members of Al-Anon who I call "God with skin" - especially my sponsors and sponsees. Oh, yes, another benefit is that once I finally, really let go of my alcoholic, he got sober. There is no guarantees, but often when Al-Anon members get better, so do the other members of their family. Recovery can be as contagious as the effects of alcoholism. to find a meeting, go to http://al-anon.org.
