Christine grew up in a family where her dad drank, had an abusive first marriage and then married an alcoholic who was a binge drinker. After difficulties in her second marriage Christine found help in Al-Anon Family Groups from time to time but it was some time later when she was really desperate that she came back for good. In Al-Anon Christine was able to understand the impact of alcoholism on her extended family and acknowledge the part she 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.
