Hi my son is in his 14th year of alcohism,and 2 years ago i hit my rock bottom,my life in dealing with his illness and all the worry anxiety and constant state of panic had deeply affected my health,i really didnt want my life to continue any longer. I found al-anon and 2 years later i am a completely renued woman, I followed the suggestions to keep coming back to the meetings,i got a sponsor and worked the 12 step program ,my life now is the same with regard to my sons drinking but i now understand the illness and the dos and donts.i can now love and support him ina way that is beneficial to us both,through my recovery he is taking baby steps towards his own, one day at a time.
