Every time I got in the car after he had been drinking, I was conveying to him that it was okay for him to drive.
Before Al-Anon I swore I was going insane. The more I tried to help the problem drinker the worse it got.
Before joining Al-Anon, I did not consciously realize that I had choices. I knew the problem drinker did: to drink or not to drink.
When there is a drinking problem in the home, all eyes are taken off of God and put on the problems caused by that...That was so true in my home.
Al-Anon family groups also has a bookmark and it has a drawing of a house with eyes for windows...with tears coming down the cheeks and a downward sad mouth.
