Last week I finished the Parents’ Newcomer Packet (item # K-24). This week I’m reading the Men’s Newcomer Packet (K-23).
WHAT I LEARNED: 1. I expected this to be full of sharings from men &, as a non-man myself, I thought: “Here’s one pamphlet I know I don’t need to read because I won’t be able to relate to it.” Well – it wasn’t & I did! This pamphlet is written for the “breadwinner” that constantly feels the weight of responsibility, is full of pride, & wonders how to belong in a room mostly full of women… which means this pamphlet was written for me too!
2. Over the years, I’ve learned that there could be an alien from another planet in the room & as long as alcoholism is in their life, we can understand each other.
