    Thank you. Very informative, I am going to pass this PODCAST on to my groups

    Happy to be the CMA and receive such great information to share with my group. I needed to hear that NIAAA does not believe that alcoholism is a “family disease” per se, but that I am one of the 3-4 people “affected” by the alcoholic with the “disease of alcoholism”. I will continue my journey learning about the disease and taking care of myself first! I hope for treatment and awareness for those who still suffer.

    This short PODCAST was very informative and enlightening. More of this kind of information is important to our AL-ANON community as a whole and further PODCASTs with outreach of this kind of information and discussion would be very beneficial to all members from newcomers to old-timers.

    Thank you!

    The Al-Anon podcast on “First Steps to Al-Anon Recovery” was great as in less than ten minutes time, important issues were discussed. The areas of life that are affected by alcohol were important to mention, and also the different terms people use such as alcohol abuse, alcohol dependence, or an alcoholic was important to identify as well.

    I thought it was interesting they discussed how many people have one of those titles mentioned above; it seems nearly impossible to accurately say how many people have the disease as not everyone seeks help. Most of all, I believe it is important to let people know when dealing with alcohol you are dealing with a disease; and believing that is the first step for everyone involved to recover.
