English speaking Alanon Meeting in Basel

Hi everyone

I am planning to start an English speaking Alanon meeting in Basel some time in November 2007.

What is Alanon?
Alanon (www.alanon.org) 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
Are you interested in joining the English Alanon Meeting in Basel?
Please post here if you are interested in attending the NEW English Alanon Meeting in Basel. The meeting time and room has not yet been defined but will be made public as soon as possible. In the meantime I hope to find people that are interested in this topic.

Thanks for your responses on here for the moment.
Jennifer

Re: English speaking Alanon Meeting in Basel

Did you work your way through all the links in the above post? If you did, it helps if you say so.

I don't mind searching, but I'm not alone in getting frustrated when I realise afterwards that the info was all there, on the same Thread, for the Newbie to find.

By the way, Welcome to the Forum.
Do you live in Fluh as in Rodersdorf / Flüh?

Re: English speaking Alanon Meeting in Basel

Hi there

yes the English Speaking Alanon Meeting still exists. It takes place on Sunday evenings from 6 to 7pm: at Schweizergasse 33. I am currently traveling but there should be someone else opening the door. Please also check our alanon.ch website for more meeting information. http://www.al-anon.ch/deutsch/wordpress/?page_id=218

We love to have you join us.
Take care
Jennifer
