Went to my first Al Anon meeting last nite and was blown away. I feel like I finally have found people who understand me! One question-I am not sure that my daughter is an addict or alcoholic. She is for SURE bingeing and using WAY too much. She may be an addict, but is al anon for families of people who are abusers too, not just full blown addicts. Also my daughter is in an abusive (emotionally) relationship. It seems like the same priciples apply-I've said for a long time this guy is like a drug to her. Her behavior completely changes when she is wiht him, she's not rational, rages, impulsive, etc. I can't even seperate the alcohol /drugs use from her sick relationship with him. Is al anon usefull for this kind of mixed up mess? It feels right to me.
