Husband of Alcoholic Wife Letter

In the beginning I didn’t want to go and came up with many reasons to justify not going. Then a friend told me he had been going to Al-Anon for several months and invited me to go out to dinner with him and then followed by a meeting. He even offered to pay for dinner, so I went!

When we got to the meeting I was nervous and felt uneasy about being there. I wasn’t the “sick one” and the place was not what I expected. In my opinion it looked dirty, the people were seedy looking, the chairs were uncomfortable, and what if they called on me, what would I say? I could not wait for the meeting to end. I didn’t like it and didn’t get very much out of it, but I was told to try to attend 6 meetings before making up my mind.

That was in 1997; today I still go to Al-Anon meetings. The Al-Anon meetings have become a way of life for me and now I actually enjoy going and look forward to the Wednesday night meetings. Today my best friends are at those meetings, and they are like family to me. I have learned that the meetings are for me, and not the alcoholic in my life.

Nancy attends her meetings and I attend mine. Al-Anon has become a way of life for me and I just love it! To me it’s like taking vitamins. I feel great so why would I stop? I urge you to consider attending Al-Anon too. If you are not happy with the results they will gladly refund all of your misery and unhappiness.

With the help of Al-Anon I can be happy whether the alcoholic in my life is drinking or not. This is a family disease and while I didn’t personally cause it, I certainly can’t cure it, and I can’t control the alcoholic. I can take care of myself and Al-Anon supports me in doing just that.
