New here and not sure where i belong

Hello,

I'm not sure where i belong. i'm an adult child of alcoholic parents, i have a best friend that is an alcoholic and i just ended a long term relationship with an alcoholic and active opiate user. Fortunately, i do not have any alcohol/drug addictions myself, but i am an enabler and co-dependent. I have been doing a lot of reading about nar-anon/al-anon and others but i'm not sure where to actually begin because i identify with a bunch of them. whether that's a good or bad thing, i don't know. But i do know that i need help and need to work on me.

Welcome to SR beth! We're so glad you are here. Newcomers is a good place to introduce yourself - and in your particular situation the Friends & Family Forum would be helpful - I see you've already posted there.

I'm glad you've reached out for help and support - you'll find many here who are going through the same challenges. Not being alone anymore is a huge help.
