Thought For The Day

Quote #1

“How can I best help the addict? By not interfering when he gets into difficulties. I must detach myself from his shortcoming, neither making up for them nor criticizing them. Let me learn to play my own role, and leave his to him. If he fails in it, the failure is not mine, no matter what others may think or say about it.” (from Al-Anon)

Quote #2

“I didn’t cause it. I can’t control it. I can’t cure it.” (from Al-Anon)

Quote #3

“The burden of always striving, trying to control, being the responsible one, [of someone else’s addiction] is impossible to maintain…” (from Al-Anon)

Peace, love, light, and joy,
