another strong plus is that it offers many personal stories - of how and why a wide range of people got into al-anon and how their recovery has been progressing, and each told by the individuals themselves, starting with Lois W., al-anon's co-founder, the wife of Bill W., the founder of AA.
this is a wonderful book and i recommend it highly!
Mainly, 'the part you play in the family disease of alcholism," as we learn from this book, is about taking a
look at your own personal involvement in this family disease. In this way, you are able to recognize what you need to change. You may need to stop being a "fixer," trying to fix the alcoholic or other love ones and, instead, be "supportive." You may need to stop being the "enabler," or doing for the alcoholic and/or other love ones what they should be doing for themselves & allow learning from natural consequences. In making such changes(by "letting go"), you can help the alcoholic love one towards getting the help he or she needs. This does not mean in anyway that you stop caring about what happens to him or her but allow learning from natural consequences. You will learn not to fear, nag, scold or judge the alcoholic & others but to love more!Read more ›
