My husband has been sober for almost 3 years now, he goes to meetings 2 or 3 times a week... I have been sober myself now for 3 years from the birth of my son, so not by my own choice but but the grace of god i got clean and sober... i guess being a mother made it a bit easier for me. My husband does amazing and i am so proud of him... As for me I am considering going to al anon meeting to keep supporting him... I feel I am not an alcoholic and would like to go out once in a while, but i also respect his sobritey, i am also jealous of him being able to go out and get the socialazation that i crave!! I have supported him by not drinking myself fo rthe last 3 years but i never really had a problem like he did... So do i go to al anon meeting to meet people and help me loose my desire to drink... I feel like i need to do something for me, and every one i know is just willing to go to a bar to hang out... I hear differant things... like al anon will just tell you that you are not the one with the problem... but i do not want to loose every thing we have worked so hard for these past 3 years... Help, my desire to drink is getting the best of me and my need for human companionship is slipping thru the cracks... Is al anon for people with partners that still drink?? or for sober famialies as well?? :?:

When you get to Alanon, and please do come and go to at least several different meetings before deciding if its right for you, you will come to ask yourself, why did I wait so long.

going to alanon brought me to a greater understanding of my recovery and life with the people in my life who are alcoholic, in recovery and not. I found hope and anger, honesty and denial, people i liked and others i disliked. go and go soon. you are in my prayers my friend.
