I joined Al-Anon because I knew my potential for happiness was great. I just wasn't very happy because I was insane always thinking about the alcoholic in my life. Well, now I think about me. I do things for me now. I go to meetings, I make phone calls, I read lots and lots of Al-Anon literature, and of late, I've gone on-line. I also take pleasure in my children, my husband, my dog, my surroundings, and I thank my higher power every day for everything I do have.
The "Thoughts of the Day" are from members of various 12 step programs. Some are A.A., some Al-Anon, and some Adult Children of Alcoholics. Take what you need and leave the rest!
