I am planning to start an English speaking Alanon meeting in Basel
some time in November 2007. What is Alanon?
) is the parther self-help organization from AA (alcoholics anonymous) with its purpose to help families and friends of alcoholics make healthier choices and find happiness and contentment whether the alcoholic is drinking or not. It is estimated that each alcoholic affects the lives of at least 4 other people. Alcoholism is truly a family disease. For over 50 years Alanon is helping friends and families so that they can find solutions that lead to serenity. How will Al-Anon help me?
Many who come to Al-Anon/Alateen are in despair, feeling hopeless, unable to believe that things can ever change. We want our lives to be different, but nothing we have done has brought about change. We all come to Al-Anon because we want and need help.
In Al-Anon and Alateen, members share their own experience, strength, and hope with each other. You will meet others who share your feelings and frustrations, if not your exact situation. We come together to learn a better way of life, to find happiness whether the alcoholic is still drinking or not.
Is Al-Anon For You?
Help is here for the asking. Our 20-question self-quizzes can help you decide if Al-Anon may be of help. Select a quiz, listed below, and ask yourself the questions. If you identify with some of the sentiments, we encourage you to give Al-Anon or Alateen a try! Check the website for the questions www.alanon.org
