Happy October!!

If your meeting does not have a subscription, please order a copy of the FORUM for them.  My goal is for each meeting in the State of Maine to have a subscription!  If you are not able to pay for a subscription…. Please message me and we will be giving 22 subscriptions away in the next year !!

September 2018      “A Clearer Picture”

If we cannot get to a meeting, or we are traveling and just need a dose of Al-Anon……

THE FORUM is your answer!!  A meeting in your pocket!!

SHARE HOW YOU HAVE BEEN HELPED BY CAL! In what ways has CAL affected your recovery? A little bird told me if you write on the CONCEPTS or TRADITIONS you have a good chance of being published!!  It can be a fun time for your Group to get together! Send comments to: with CAL Corner in the subject line…deadline is 15th of each month!

The FORUM is ALWAYS looking for entries from Al-Anon members!  Write something on your favorite Step, Tradition or Slogan! Send it into the Forum or submit it online!

STEP 10  “Continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong promptly admitted it”.  BALANCE is the topic in this months’ sharing about Step 10. Sometimes we are WRONG…and we also do positive things much of the time!

TRADITION 10   “The Al-Anon Family groups have no opinions on outside issues: hence our name be never drawn into public controversy.” How wonderful that Al-Anon provides such an oasis for all of us in this crazy world…A place away from controversy.

CONCEPT 10   “Service responsibility is balanced by carefully defined service authority and double-headed management is avoided.” This member applies this concept to her marriage.

There is a GREAT article about saying “yes” to Service! How this member’s life changed after that.

The Forum has SO many different articles!  There is always something on Service & on Alateen.

I love the “Instant Meeting” which is focused on the Step of the Month. There are several stories with varying topics sent in from all over the world! It is so inspiring.

There is another piece reminding us to keep Newcomers in mind this holiday season!!
