Al-Anon has a leaflet and it is titled, “Did you grow up with a problem drinker? Al-Anon is for you!” It is 20 questions. Here are just a few of those questions:
•Do you overextend yourself?
•Do you have a need for perfection?
•Do you still fee responsible for others, as you did for the problem drinker in your life?
•Do you respond with fear to authority figures and angry people?
•Do you attract and/or seek people who tend to be compulsive and/or abusive?
•Do you isolate yourself from other people?
Those of us who grew up with a problem drinker, sometimes do grow up with problems like these and more. The Al-Anon program did help me resolve these issues and others. So if you did answer yes to any of the above questions Al-Anon may be of help to you.
If you would like to give it a try, there are two meetings a week in Wautoma. They are both at Hope Lutheran Church on Bean Street by A&W. One is on Mondays at noon and the other is Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. Won’t you come join us?
Peace of the program,
