    I started coming to recovery meetings to learn how to “stop” the alcoholic in my life from drinking. I soon learned that recovery was not about them- but about ME!! I realized that I could not change their behaviors but I could change my reactions to their behaviors. I felt accepted and loved by everyone in the group even with all of my problems. I learned to depend on others for support when I needed to and I also learned to give support when others needed it. Recovery is a new way of life for me and for all of my family—we have all learned that we have choices and that we must accept the consequences for our own actions, not the actions of other family member. – Anonymous
