Hi all, I know there was someone else who was going to go to their first alanon meeting this week. I am wondering how it went? My husband and I went to our first meeting this week. We went to a parents meeting so everyone there was a parent of an addict. I found it so helpful. We are definitely going back this week. Since that meeting I have been more ablel to think about other things and been less obsessed with how my son is doing in rehab. I feel a bit as if a weight was lifted..... not completely fo course because I am still concerned and thinking about him but somehow meeting other parents who really understood and also are finding ways to not have the addict in their lives their total and completel focus was really helpful...... I just overall felt better and happier this week than I have been..... of course it helps a lot that my son is in rehab right now and not at home. So if you haven't been and have a child addicted to alcohol or drugs I really recommend trying an alanon meeting. I am looking forward to the next one.
