Arbutus O'N  from Brownwood, TX speaking at the 3rd Anniversary Soberfest in Champaign, IL – October 9th 1993.

“My life continues to be unmanageable when I fail to practice the principles that were given to us by a society of ex-drunks …”

“There was one group of people … who never gave up on the alcoholics. … the families of alcoholics.”

Arbutus talks about her experience, strength and hope, of what life was like before Al-Anon existed, and how she found recovery in the “family groups” that became Al-Anon. This is a “must listen.” You can now subscribe to our speaker talks. See How To Listen and scroll to the bottom of the page for details.
