WHAT I LEARNED: 1. A few paradoxes of the Al-Anon program:
A) Letting go takes a lot of work;
B) Being powerless gives me power;
C) Helping can harm.
2. There are 3 levels of detachment: middle-finger, neutral, & loving!

Middle finger I haven’t tried, that’s one to consider 🙂 thanks Pat you make me smile
The examples given were: 1) Middle-Finger: The alcoholic passes out on the front lawn, you turn on the sprinklers & go back to sleep. 2) Neutral: You skip the sprinklers & just go back to sleep. 3) Loving: You bring out a blanket to put over the alcoholic & then go back to sleep. 😉
