Hi everyone, I just joined the alanon group. I am involved in other groups as well. I have multiple family members that are alcoholics/addicts. I think part of my depression stems from this and my loneliness. My friends can't understand because they don't have to deal with it. I wanted to join in hopes that I can get good advice from others who have dealt with these issues. It will be great to get to know you. I went to a meeting about 2 months ago, and never went in. I guess I was scared and didn't know what to do. Has anyone else tried, but left out of fear?
