(#2790) Cheryl B (Wichita, KS)
4/22/1995 in Manhattan, KS  EVENT: TWTW 18th Anniversary  TYPE: Al-Anon, Female, Story

Cheryl's husband, with 9 years of sobriety, is her qualifier but that is not why she in in Al-Anon. They started in recovery around the same time.

"Whatever relationship I was in, I was always looking around. I was always looking for greener grass...What I didn't know was that the grass is greener where it's watered."

Until she got into recovery, she thought there were no alcoholics in her family.

It turns out, it was riddled with them including her father who died in a car crash when she was in her teens and her grandfather who stayed in the shed because he was not allowed to drink in the house.

"I heard on this tape that if you are going to one meeting a week, you are keeping a seat warm for a newcomer.

If you are going to two meetings a week you can maintain.

If you are going to three or more meetings a week you can grow."

Very recommendable.
