My first Al Anon meeting

Hi all!

I just wanted to report that I went to my first Alanon meeting today. Well, it's not technically my first- if you read my first post you'll see that I do have past experience with Alanon.

Anyway- I'm so glad I went. I was really nervous, but I knew that all I had to do was get in the car and drove there, got out of the car, walk into the building and sit down- the rest would take care of itself.

The group was really nice and definitely made me feel welcome. I talked to a fellow alanon'er about being my sponsor- she accepted, but will be out of town for the next week or two. So, she suggested that I come back next week and start reading the literature (One Day at a Time).

Thank you all for encouraging me to go to the meeting.

Craven

Good for you, Craven. Meetings saved my life and gave me back my sanity (well most of it, lol)

I know for certain that I would not be in the good place I am in today if I had not gone to meetings and learned to work the steps.

Hugs
