That's entirely up to you. I can't remember how long you were with her, but I was with my ex 3 yrs off and on, and a recovering alcoholic for a yr before that...

I guess I am going to al-anon because I feel damaged. I feel like my codependent tendencies are what keep getting me into relationships with alcoholics. I'm hoping that by doing the steps, going to meetings, working on my issues....that I won't end up in any more unhealthy relationships. I'm doing this for me, not my ex.

Yes, I did see your post yesterday and I found it very informative and inspiring. For me, I haven't been involved with my A for a long period of time, so I'm not sure if I can appreciate it the same way. I remeber a conversation I had with my ex once about the fact that I would be willing to attend al-anon meetings or sit in with her AA (if you can do that?) just so I could better understand this disease.
