Like many others, I came to my first meeting at the recommendation of a counselor. I was filled with a feeling of nervousness in my stomach. What if someone knows me? I thought to myself. I walked into the room and was immediately greeted by an Al‑Anon member. She sat by me and when the meeting was over, she told me to “Keep Coming Back.” I now know that, because every meeting is different, I needed to “Keep Coming Back” to find the meeting that was just right for me.
