Is Al-Anon for YOU?

Is someone's drinking bothering you?

Millions of people are affected by the excessive drinking of someone else.

The following questions are designed to help you decide whether or not you need Al-Anon.

    • Are Plans frequently upset or cancelled or meals delayed because of the drinker?
    • Do you have money problems because of someone else's drinking?
    • Do you feel if the drinker loved you, he or she would stop drinking to please you?
    • Do you worry about how much someone else drinks?
    • Do you tell lies to cover up for someone else's drinking?
    • Do you blame the drinker's behavior on his or her companions?
    • Do you make threats, such as, "If you don't stop drinking, I'll leave you"?
    • Do you secretly try to smell the drinker's breath?
    • Are you afraid to upset someone for fear it will set off a drinking bout?
    • Have you been hurt or embarrassed by a drinker's behavior?
    • Are holidays and gatherings spoiled because of drinking?
    • Have you considered calling the police for help in fear of abuse?
    • Do you search for hidden alcohol?
    • Do you ever ride in a car with a driver who has been drinking?
    • Have you refused social invitations out of fear or anxiety?
    • Do you feel like a failure because you can't control the drinking?
    • Do you think that if the drinker stopped drinking, your other problems would be solved?
    • Do you ever threaten to hurt yourself to scare the drinker?
    • Do you feel angry, confused or depressed most of the time?
    • Do you feel there is no one who understands your problems?
If you have answered yes to any of these questions, Al-Anon or Alateen may be able to help.

Anonymity Statement:
There may be some who are not familiar with our Tradition of personal anonymity in any form of press, radio, films, TV, internet and other electronic media.

If so, we respectfully ask that no Al-Anon, Alateen, or AA speaker or member be identified by full name or picture in published broadcast or Web-posted reports of our meeting.

The assurance of anonymity is essential to our efforts to help other families of alcoholics and our tradition of anonymity reminds us to place Al-Anon and Alateen principles above personalities.
