The ncouragement and support I have found with my home Al anon group is amazing and cannot be something to get from the book It s a great book for guidance but it s one thing to read it and another to Moreno experience it live with real people I have been blessed to meet a wonderful sisterhood I have found with my women s group and this book is a good guideline not just for those affected by alcohol past or present but really anyone who have found themselves to be a co dependent which is common in those from alcoholic families I have hi lighted so much from this book and nodded in agreement so many times with the been there done that Really helped me understand my own destructive behaviors and how to break free I read this because my counselor made me I hated reading it but it was a good book for me to read I don t think I will practice the program but I am happy to know it is there and currently looking into ACA I bought this book as a sort of update I am the former spouse of a person with deepseated anger issues I had participated in Alanon back in the 1990 s but had fallen away from it and since my divorce from that person with recovery issues I learned that she had become heavily involved in Alanon to sort through things related to her own Family Of Origin So I bought this book because I wanted to fully understand the attraction of The Program she is now going mulitple times per weekWhen we were together I hadxperienced her problems and born the brunt of anger which shredded my self Monsieur Pain esteem but not been able to help her She was in denial up until a period after the divorce when she finally hit her own Rock Bottom I needed to let go and let God help her a difficult decision for sure Now the book is inseparable from the Alanon Program and this is something you love or hate or maybe I should say which youither buy into totally or fail to understand I agree with the other reviewers who said you need than just this in order to begin recovery The heart and soul of Alanon for those persons who desperately need it is not the book not the slogans but the other persons who are further along in the process and who become your sponsor these people become your new support system and help you learn to re parent yourself In this way to truly work the Program is akin to joining a cult since you will go through a period of depending on these persons to help you relearn the world My former spouse said something they all say I don t know what my old friends think of my new Alanon friends but they are my family now you get the picture It was particularly striking when I was on the phone with her several years after the divorce prompted by issues with one of our daughters She seemed unable to complete a phone conversation unless she interrupted it and called back I realized that in the interim she was phoning a sponsor discussing my call and then calling.

Me back parroting what The Program said in this situation This is a level of dependence on the Alanon lifeline which is dazzling The role of the sponsor is only alluded to in a tangential way in the book I feel sorry to realize that there are so any wounded souls out there who need this but the truth is Alanon has saved many people s lives and helped them during their crises If you are a person with co dependent issues the Program is for you It has helped many people with personality disorders in addition to the families of alcoholicsAnger has a place in recovery but this is my main area where I have difficulties with The Program One bone to pick with Alanon is on the area of detaching with love a strategy or techniue used to cope with any person causing difficulty In my case I was the spouse of an Alanon person whose issues mainly dealt with her Family Of Origin but detaching with love was used to cut me off since I was not also using The Program It was not until years later that the person realized the craziness and injustice of this If you are the non offending family member be alert for this because it can be misused against you as a means to pull the person into the cultish aspects of Alanon Alanon teaches the new disciples how to do this but I do not think it is fair to the recipient of the strategy because it is never The Exhaustion Breakthrough explained True Love can be similar tonmeshment it is a mystery of life Also Alanon adherents will often go through a period of learning how to The Exhaustion Breakthrough: Unmask the Hidden Reasons You're Tired and Beat Fatigue for Good express their anger as they restablish their personal identity and if the person has deep seated anger issues which are rooted in their basic personality the lingo of Alanon can be used to rationalize the way that a person delivers verbal abuse under the guise of being honest Now when owning you own anger gets confused with only owning your side of ther street it is a subtle way to condone Supplemental Book emotional violence toward those persons around the new Alanon convert Would you unleash your anger at a two year old No because the kid doesn t have the toolsMost adult persons caught up with a person who has a personality disorder likewise do not have the tools to deal with this kind of verbal abuse and a new convert can use the wrong parts of The Program to justifyvil behavior It goes without saying that there is never any Hark! The Herald Angels Scream excuse for the kind of unkindness sometimes unleashed by Alanon adherents toward those around them who are non disciples That was myxperienceSoin balance as I wrote the book is not separable from The Program take it or leave it This book saved my life I plan to read it many times over Even if you did not grow up in an alcoholic home this book might provide some insights Interesting I never had any idea that alcoholism could still affect families for generations after the last drinking alcoholic has died I was very confused about this for awhile but Codependent Help Me?
