Note: this interview was originally recorded on 02 March 2017 in the 3CR studio but this is the first time that it has been podcast.
Brenda had separated from her alcoholic husband for 13 years before a friend suggested she go to Al-Anon Family Groups. Celeste sought help in Al-Anon when she was concerned about her boyfriend’s drinking and she later realized that her father was also an alcoholic.
In Al-Anon Brenda and Celeste were able to understand the impact of alcoholism on their family and acknowledge the part they unconsciously played in the family disease of alcoholism.
If someone else's drinking is causing you a problem then you can phone the Al-Anon Family Groups helpline on 1300 252 666 or go online at al-anon.org.au.
