What we're about
** South OC (Unofficial) Al-Anon **
(1 - We understand the need for anonymity, so please feel free to contact me directly before you “Request to Join” with the answers to the new member questionnaire, if that makes you more comfy.
2 - Also, please edit your screen name to be first name and last initial only. There’s no need to post your full last name, amirite?)
Due to anonymity, you do not have to rsvp to absolutely any event. You can message me on MU privately if you want to attend an event, etc, or have any questions.
** This unofficial group has nothing to do with recovery and sobriety for members and is not Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) or Al-ATeen, in case you are browsing for those types of MeetUp groups or just starting on the path of learning more / education, etc. Wikipedia is always a great place to understand the history of groups, terminology, etc.
Bringing together people in an unofficial capacity who want to explore life beyond ALANON! Share our AL ANON experiences and endeavors that bring us health, wealth and happiness. Share ideas for fun, entertainment and getting together with (or without) cocktails / wine. Share our challenges and victories without any judgement, if you please. But jokes and senses of humor greatly welcomed!
We want to have fun doing various activities (movies, hot tubbing, bike rides, beach walks, dinner parties, puppy parties, museums, etc.) with other (non or) current alcohol consumers who would rather focus on the positive aspects of life rather than dwell on the horrific past / present of those they love and the detrimental condition that someone they love (alive or not) is / was afflicted with. Time to take control and move forward in a positive way with funny and positive people! Suggestions of future events always appreciated!
Join this unofficial group for AL A NON schedules for south Orange County, education, opportunities and support from real people experiencing similar life situations. No professional counselors, etc, available for you, just down to earth people and participants of Al- Anon who are ready and willing to live life to its fullest and be genuine to others at all times!
Please attend any event and see what you think! Grow from the knowledge gained! There is zero down side to supporting others and experiencing an amazing life of confidenc and empowerment at the same time!
