Alateen helped me change my life. Through Alateen, I’ve learned to deal with the alcoholic in a good way. Even though he isn’t drinking, we still have bad moments. Now, when he yells at me, I don’t fight with him. I learned that I cannot control him, but I can control myself. One of the tools I have learned in Alateen is to try not to escalate the situation by yelling back.
