Is someone you love facing jail or prison because of their drinking or addiction? How do you live through something like that? Michele and Marc share their experience, strength, and hope. Their son started drinking and using drugs in high school, and it's been quite a ride since then. He is now in prison. They describe their journey and what it's like for them now.
Readings and Links
Marc opened with a reading from the Nar-Anon daily reader, Sharing Experience, Strength, and Hope, July 24.
Michele read from April 18 of that book.
In response to a topic suggestion of “principles before personalities”, I referred to our episode 98 on Tradition 12.
A listener suggested a topic about adult children who are still actively using, and I pointed to the Parents' Roundtable, episode 22.
We have a topic suggestion of quotes, proverbs, and parables. We'd love to hear about the ones that are meaningful to you. 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.
