Has great meaning for me. Practing the program of recovery outlined presents an opportunity to live a much higher quality of life.

Too much for people like me who overdo the self-reflection!! But in healthy doses: Way Healthy. I'd recommend it.

We've gone back to the basics which is fabulous for where I am at right now in my life. Back to Step One. Admitting my powerlessness and unmanageability. Accepting that which I cannot change.

I am in a Step and Tradition Study on Tuesday nights and this is the book we use. We're answering the questions about Tradition Two right now. I find that the Traditions are a great guide on how to relate in a healthy way in friend, family, work and love relationships.

This book took me a very long time to read, but it was worth it. I did every exercise and answered every question. This book helped me to discover things about myself I never knew. Great words and ideas to live by.

This is an excellent book on recovery for alanon members. Its one of the books that stay on the currently reading shelf because there is much more to glean by rereading.

A very helpful tool for practicing the twelve steps in my al-anon program. Nice personal stories, and insightful questions at the end of each chapter. A great way to point me in the right direction.

This is one of the newer Al-Anon books, relatively speaking. I have found it to be an excellent guide to the 12 steps.
