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.
