Welcome Statement

We welcome you to this Al-Anon Family Group meeting and hope you will find in this fellowship the help and friendship we have been privileged to enjoy.

We who live, or have lived, with the problem of alcoholism understand as perhaps few others can.

  We, too, were lonely and frustrated but in Al-Anon we discover that no situation is really hopeless                                         and that it is possible for us to find contentment and even happiness, whether the alcoholic is still drinking or not.

               We urge you  try our program. It has helped many of us find solutions that lead to serenity. So much depends on our own attitudes, and as we learn to place our problem in its true perspective, we find it loses its power to dominate our thoughts and our lives.

                   The family situation is bound to improve as we apply the Al-Anon ideas. Without such spiritual help living with an alcoholic is too much for most of us. Our thinking becomes distorted by trying to force solutions, and we become irritable and unreasonable without knowing it.
