This week we have an Al-Anon open talk by Randy K. I (Spencer) identified with a lot of his experience. I was particularly struck by his description of his “addiction”, and related closely to it.
Upcoming topics include Concepts 8 and 9, your shared experience with intervention, and the non-drinking parent. Please call us at 734-707-8795 or email firstname.lastname@example.org with your questions or experience, strength and hope. Or just leave a comment right here.
In this talk, Bob asks and gives his answer to the question “What does God look like?” I think you will like his answer. He explores his experience of what life is like when he follows God’s will for him, and how much better it has been than when he listens to the lies his mind tells him. Bob is an alcoholic, but I identified strongly with most of what he had to say. The audio quality is not good, but stay with it. It’s worth it. I think this talk is from the 1970s, because he talks about “when they started this thing 40 years ago.”
