    The Way An Alnon Member Treated Me

    I'm a grateful member of alanon.  And I've posted a story in one of the alanon groups on Experience Project.  It was mostly about my mixed opinions and unresolve on an alanon book I'm reading. Someone else claiming to be an alanon member commented on my post  and...

    I Quit Going To Al-anon. Again.

    The title of this group is "I Went to Al-Anon" not "I currently go to Al-Anon." Which is important because I used to go to Al-Anon meetings regularly 4 years ago, then I quit. Recently, my alcoholic spouse got busted for drunk driving (again), and decided to start going to AA...

    Went. Past tense. I went every week, sometimes multiple times a week, read every day, had a sponsor, etc. for 6 months or so. It helped....for awhile. I'm honestly not sure why I stopped going. I thought I was ready for Step 4, my sponsor thought it was too early, and that's...
