There's YOUR business.
There's MY business.
There's GOD'S business.

When I find myself in YOUR business or you in MY business, then it's GOD'S business.

Ya, Alanon is a good thing. I'll find a lot of help here.

I love my coda meetings...they were always making the "lighbulb" go off for me...like "why didn't I think of that"...it seemed so simple.

his drinking is HIS business.

how it makes YOU feel is YOUR business.

you can't change his business...so, the only thing you can do is decide what to do about yours.

and god WILL take care of the rest.

Way to go artist 2, I am proud of you for going and glad you learned a valuable lesson.

Always remember to clean your side of the street and let others clean there side. It's not your job to go over there and help unless of course you are asked!!!

Good for you!!!

I am learning things on this board just by reading at times. I like that anology!!!! I have a question though, I am co-dependent period, and It is not on an alcoholic. My mom feels I should go to Alnon to learn to take care of me and it doesn't matter about what exactly I am co-dependent on.

what do you think? Is alnon just for people who are dependent on the alcoholic/addict?

lonely...there are coda meetings...go to http://www.coda.org....IF you can't find one of them in your area, alanon or ACOA (adult children of alcoholics) are the next best thing.

both of them focus on how not to get so entangled with other people's problems, build your esteem and learn to rebuild your sense of self without the other "addict".

so yeah, mom is right on this one.

but check out coda.org first...you may find a meeting close enough to you.

Thanks, I wil check that out. I am in a new relationship and told him in the beginning I don't want to be a controller and he is not letting me either. I am struggling with it cause I want to know everything. That is a whole different thing though that I will post about soon.
