Sometimes people get into Al-Anon and begin their own recovery process and they leave. Sometimes they stay. But it is their decision to make. We don't presume to tell anyone what is best for them. Every situation is different and there is no way that we can know all of the details or the complete situation. Al-Anon can give them the tools they need to make an informed decision, but Al-Anon does not give advice.
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!
