Tom – His sister needed Al-Anon – Episode 256

Tom grew up in a loving, chaotic family. As an adult, he found recovery for his alcoholism, but didn't know how to cope with the alcoholics around him. It wasn't until he decided that his sister needed Al-Anon, that he started attending regularly, and carrying the message back to her. Eventually, he started to see how he had been affected by this disease and continued working the program for himself.

    I have no words for how profoundly Tom’s story resonates with me, and I want to thank him for sharing his ESH. While an alcoholic partner brought me to my program, I have a family of origin quite similar to Tom’s, and dealing with them is often the most challenging part of my life now. It’s SO hard! Thank you for discussing this topic.
