Trish Says:

I try to keep my addictions in perspective, for now I have to contantly monitor when I show signs of falling off the wagon. I know someday it will become easier as I adopt new thinking into my life. It takes awhile to get comfortable with changes. It may feel strange at first but what can you expect when all you know is dysfunction? Patience is a virtue, I guess.

Tina Says:

Feelings aren't fact. When I'm in an upsetting situation, I need to dismiss my feelings and "Think." The more I use my head in times my feelings want to take over, the less amends I have to make after I have cooled off. Good things and bad things happen to everyone. Whichever one we choose to focus on, on a daily basis will determine our serenity.

I think I fantasized that I would lose 60 pounds, suddenly make headway in my career, and have my finances and my house in order just by going into recovery. It turns out the miracle was getting the serenity so I could get my act together to do the work on my own life. It's hard to make progress when you are living from forest fire to forest fire.

Tere Says:

This year I will focus on loving myself: that is, accepting myself as I am, forgiving myself for times that I've "failed"; not judging myself, not feeling sorry for myself. Rather, I will love myself and have compassion for myself; to thank God for my many blessings and thus be able to be present to what life has to offer.

AA isn't a crash course in "How to drink responsibly in 90 days" Nor is it a "Get to know God overnight" seminar. What it is is "A fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other so that they may SOLVE their common problem and HELP others to recover from alcoholism"

Radar Says:

Taking the twelve steps has been and continues to be a spiritual journey for me. This journey, that occasionally takes me back to the pain of the past for further growth, mostly keeps me focused on the present and the hope for the future. Needless to say I am a grateful member of Al-Anon and would recommend this program to anyone whose life has been affected by alcohol.

Steve R. Says:

Willingness is another key aspect of recovery. The willingness to: change and be open to new ideas, ways, and attitudes. Our ways of the past have clearly not worked, and only made things worse. We need to be willing to make radical changes in our lives in order to make recovery work for us. We need to be willing to do whatever it takes, to go to any length neccesary in order to remain clean and sober.

Melinda Says:

I just celebrated my first anniversary with Al-Anon. What a wonderful accomplishment! I was just thinking that my life has become rather boring. I have finally gotten off the emotional rollercoaster that I rode for as long as I could remember. Insanity doesn't live here anymore. I have learned to take care of me. I still have pain at times, but Al-Anon has given me the tools to work through it. I find that I no longer react in the ways I used to, and for that I am forever grateful.

Seabreeze Says:

Today, 'As Awful As I Feel', I must get to a meeting and face my daily fears. I must try to share them no matter how hard I try to conceal them. I feel my strenths and weaknesses will only make my group stronger today and hopefully keep 'Me' sober till the next meeting; whether It be six hours or 24 hours. The Fellowship will do all It can to ease my pain but only I can make this simple program work for myself.

Deb W. Says:

My perspective on life has improved tremendously since I started the program seven months ago and got sober. However, I still have alot of debilitating fear which causes me to emotionally disconnect by "acting out." When I do this, I feel as if I may as well have been drinking because the consequences are the same. I think it's time for me to start working the steps.
