    I attend al-anon, mostly in summers, as my favorite meetings are in the daytime and I am seriously tired after teaching all day.  I know I need to find evening meetings...all ours begin at 8:00 pm.  Anyway, after all these years in the program, I have never worked the steps.  I've thought about it a lot, but haven't done anything but step one and twelve!!  Perfectionism is a hard thing.  I'm looking forward to being a part of this group.  I don't exactly know how it works, but thanks for starting it!

Hi Hannah - Welcome - Glad to have you join us.

I did the Step 1 2 3 waltz for a long time. It kept me reasonably sane but not honest. Going on with the rest of the steps, in order, put me on a journey to serenity and a knowledge of myself. I have found that the steps work in all areas of my life.

Keep coming back - it works.
