Al-Anon in the Holiday Season
Well, here we are — in the middle of the holiday season in Israel. Schedules are disrupted; we may be spending more time with our qualifiers* … or alone; meetings are often not as available as usual. Even the clocks just changed last night!
How to cope???
Al-Anon members use a variety of tools during the holidays. We may not be able to attend our regular meetings, but phone calls to sponsors or other Al-Anon members, Al-Anon literature, writing, online meetings, and prayer and meditation can help us deal with the holiday season’s highs, lows and in-betweens.
To share your most difficult holiday challenges and how Al-Anon helps, Contact Us. With your permission, we will publish your submission on this blog, anonymously, of course.
REMINDER: Al-Anon meetings in Jerusalem and the rest of Israel may be disrupted around the time of Succot. Please check with the contact person for your meeting. We will also try to post changes on the Announcements page here.
*”Qualifier(s)”: the person(s) whose drinking problem may have brought us to Al-Anon.
