Families Facing Alcoholism

Type: 
Brochure
Description: 

A magazine-style booklet of sharings by members in Australia who live or have lived with the problem of alcoholism (plus a couple of surprises) because as one Al-Anon poster declares, alcoholism shatters lives. Al-Anon members span all the roles of a given family: grandfather, grandmother, father, mother, husband wife, son, daughter, uncle, aunt, "otherwise orphan", as well employer or worker (but we don't identify our employment in meetings because our single purpose in that setting is the task of helping one another by telling our own story); helping others listening to identify the ways that we, who have been affected by the problem of alcoholic drinking, are learning to live healthy, productive lives (whether the alcoholic is still drinking or not). This booklet is an official Public Information item, replacing the use of copies of Austra-Link as a decision by the Australian Service Conference 2012.
