Since its founding in 1951, Al Anon Family Groups has published more than 100 books and pamphlets that share a single purpose: to help family and friends recover from the effects of someone else’s drinking. This literature supplements the face-to-face meetings where Al Anon members share their insights and experiences with each other. It is only one tool of the Al Anon program.
Al Anon literature is most fully understood when used in conjunction with other tools of the program. The books and pamphlets can strengthen your recovery, but they cannot substitute for the help and healing that takes place at Al Anon meetings in the context of a complete recovery program.
"When someone else's drinking is part of the problem... Al-Anon can help" (pullout quote displayed on the front cover of this service pamphlet)
This pamphlet sets out the, 'extraordinary work of two ordinary women.’
Al-Anon is a program of action; service is willingness in action, to give back to the fellowship (usually, eventually, with an attitude of gratitude). When we get into service, we are encouraged to have a service sponsor who has already "walked the talk", and therefore able to guide us along our way.
"When someone else's drinking is part of the problem... Al-Anon can help." (pullout quote displayed on the front cover of this service pamphlet)
This revised Blueprint for Progress is a very good starting point for anyone wanting to attend to Fourth Step work. The original Blueprint for Progress (P-5) continues to be available, however, there is something fresher and also useful in a practical, provision-of-space sense about the revised version.
Copyright owner and publisher, the WSO has this to say: 'Workbook for conducting an in-depth inventory, expanded from P-5 to include additional sections on fear, anger, control, intimacy, sex, finances, and spirituality. Spiral bound and 8 ½ x 11. Three-hole punched.'
This soft cover, spiral-bound item has proved to be a really useful Al-Anon resource, walking us through, each in turn: Twelve Steps, then Twelve Traditions, and then Twelve Concepts of Service. Member sharings, which make up a good portion of each chapter of this publication are very focussed on real life anecdotes and insights, cleverly drawing attention to the universal nature of each legacy presented. Contemplation and then discussion flow naturally. Thus, group meetings all around Austrealia have benefitted from using this resource as the starting point for many-a successful, healing Al-Anon meeting. This item is a Must Have!!
This catalogue item complements the book, B-24 Paths To Recovery - Al-Anon's Steps, Traditions, and Concepts (with its comprehensive overview and study of each of the Twelve Steps in turn, and the Twelve Traditions, and the Twelve Concepts of Service plus General Warranties): the three legacies of the Al-Anon: Recovery through the Steps, Unity through the Traditions, and Service of the fellowship with special guidance provided in our Twelve Concepts.
The WSO has this to say of the item: 'This companion piece to Paths to Recovery (B-24) contains the thought-provoking questions on each Step, Tradition, and Concept of Service found in the book, with space to write answers. Spiral bound and 8 ½ x 11. Three-hole punched.'
This pamphlet includes a description of the challenges facing parents and grandparents of young problem drinkers, as well as a wide variety of inspiring personal stories. It also includes a section on how parents and grandparents apply the Twelve Steps.
