Someone else’s drinking can affect your life – be it a relative or friend, male or female.
Someone else’s uncontrolled, and uncontrollable, drinking can:
turn love to hate
bring you to the depths of despair
affect you financially
lead to violent outbursts
make you doubt your own sanity
make you think that you are the problem.
Whatever your relationship to the drinker, whatever your story, Al-Anon can help.
Al-Anon Family Groups hold regular meetings where members share their own experience of living with alcoholism. Al-Anon does not offer advice or counselling, but members give each other understanding, strength and hope.

Al-Anon Family Groups Meetings
Unless otherwise stated, Al-Anon meetings are held every week. Most meetings last for one and a half hours. You are welcome to attend if you have been – or still are – affected by someone elses drinking.
Contacts are available for each meeting, if you wish to speak to someone prior to attending a meeting, please call
028 9068 2368 for details.
All meetings are by tradition, ‘closed’, that is, attended only by family and friends whose lives have been affected by the alcoholic’s behaviour. ‘Open’ meetings are offered by some groups who welcome professionals and others interested in learning how meetings can provide help and support to their clients. We ask visitors to respect the traditions of confidentiality and anonymity”
