I found hope that I could survive. I found compassion and friendship. I found tools and principles to use in all aspects of my life. I detached from the chaos. I let others deal with the consequences of their behavior. I took control of my life with Al‑Anon literature, slogans, and Steps.
I live my life today using Al‑Anon suggestions. Every morning, I read, pray, and meditate. I have contact with other members. I look forward to at least three meetings a week, and participate in Al‑Anon functions as much as possible. My serenity depends on my Al‑Anon practices. Our family is healing from the effects of alcoholism “One Day at a Time.”
