Al-Anon Helps Families Recover from the Impacts of a Loved Ones Drinking

Virginia Beach, VA (PRWEB) May 16, 2013

The Twelve Steps of Al-Anon can be a journey of self-discovery and renewal for families and friends of problem drinkers. Newcomers often attend Al-Anon Family Groups in a sincere attempt to make a loved one stop drinking. Gradually they recognize the impacts that a loved ones drinking has had on them and their family. They begin to see some of the improvements that are possible in the quality of their lives, whether their loved one continues to drink or not.

In a new podcast from Al-Anon Family Groups, Using Step Five, three anonymous Al-Anon members tell how their loved ones alcoholism affected them. They explain how discouragement and despair turned into hope, peace of mind, and a new way of life. The Step Five podcast is available at Al-Anon.org under the category, Using Al-Anons Steps in Our Personal Lives.

Anonymity is an important principle of the Al-Anon program. Lois, Tom, and Marsha describe the process they went through to acquire peace of mind for themselves and compassion for their loved ones. Their stories are typical of many relatives and friends of problem drinkers.

Lois shared some of her emotions associated with growing up with two alcoholic parents. I had so much shame. I had so much anger and rage. I didnt understand what happened.

Tom came to Al-Anon because of his mothers drinking. He was determined to find a way to make her stop. Al-Anon showed me there were a lot of other things more important that I should be looking at, Tom said. It took some time, though, for me to realize that I had been affected, that it wasnt all about my mom.

Marsha came to Al-Anon because of her husbands drinking. I could not figure out what I needed to do to get him to stop drinking, Marsha said. I thought, of course, that it was his problem, not mine. If he would go somewhere to take care of his problem, then we would be okay.

Al-Anon Family Groups are for friends and families who have been affected by the problem drinking of someone close to them. Nearly 16,000 local groups meet every week throughout the U.S., Canada, Bermuda, and Puerto Rico. Al-Anon Family Groups meet in more than 130 countries, and Al-Anon literature is available in more than 40 languages. Al-Anon Family Groups have been offering strength and support to families and friends of alcoholics since 1951. Al-Anon Family Group Headquarters, Inc., also known as the World Service Office, acts as the clearinghouse worldwide for inquiries from those who need help or want information about Al-Anon Family Groups and Alateen, its program for teenage members.

For more information about Al-Anon Family Groups, go to Al-Anon.Alateen.org, or read a copy of “Al-Anon Faces Alcoholism 2013.” Find a local meeting by calling toll-free: 1-888-4AL-ANON, Monday – Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. ET.

Al Wadj Bank, Saudi Arabia (NASA, International Space Station Science, 12/30/07)
Science

Al Wadj Bank, Saudi Arabia is featured in this image photographed by an Expedition 16 crewmember on the International Space Station. Saudi Arabia boasts the most coral reefs of any Middle Eastern country, as it includes coastline along both the Red Sea and Gulf of Arabia. This high resolution image depicts a portion of the Al Wadj Bank, located along the northern Red Sea coast. Despite the relatively high salinity of Red Sea water (compared to other oceans), approximately 260 species of coral are found here, according to scientists. Large tracts of the Saudi Arabian coastline are undeveloped, and reefs in these areas are in generally good ecological health. However, reefs located near large urban centers like Jeddeh have suffered degradation due to land reclamation, pollution, and increased terrigeneous sediment input. The Al Wadj Bank includes a healthy and diverse reef system, extensive seagrass beds, and perhaps the largest population of dugong — a marine mammal similar to the North American manatee — in the eastern Red Sea. The portion of the Bank in this image illustrates the complex form and topography of the reef system. Several emergent islands (tan) – surrounded primarily by dark green seagrass – are visible, the largest located at top left. Only the islands are above the waterline — over the reef structures the water color ranges from light teal (shallow) to turquoise (increasing depth). The southern edge of the reef is well indicated by the deep, dark blue water of the Red Sea at image top.

Darwin’s Paradox: Runaway Bestseller from Acclaimed Author Nina Munteanu




Darwin’s Paradox Cover


Chicago, IL (PRWEB) November 16, 2007

Darwin’s Paradox–a book that explores humanity’s evolution through our relationship with nature and machine … What would happen if they came together?

In today’s multiplex world of rapid planetary change, the lines between biology and technology are swiftly blurring in wondrous and equally terrifying ways. We are witnessing an increase in studies that link a growing infertility in humans to industrial activities and urban lifestyles. Yet, those of us who are born today can expect to live with enhanced intelligence, longevity, and health thanks to technological advances such as neuromorphic engineered implants, nano-A.I. medicine and other biotechnological advances.

Co-evolving with our exploitation of the world’s ecology is the spread of emergent and resistant diseases. Futurist Michio Kaku suggests that because of the rampant use of anti-biotics “our own bodies have become a Darwinian battleground where only the nastiest mutant strains of bacteria thrive.” Yet, Doctor Lynn Margulis proved the notion that cellular evolution of virus and host cell may evolve through cooperation, often into a single symbiotic entity (e.g., evolution of eukaryotic cell). Virologist Frank Ryan states that “every monkey, baboon, chimpanzee and gorilla is carrying at least ten different species of symbiotic virus.” And, while Lynn Margulis argues that a virus is intelligent, Transhumanist Ray Kurzweil predicts the inevitability of self-aware sentient robots.

In her book, Darwin’s Paradox (Dragon Moon Press) ecologist, educator and acclaimed author Nina Munteanu explores the frightening prospect of an intelligent self-organized virus joined with a self-aware A.I. in a world preoccupied with issues of infertility and the residual effects of an industrial plague.

Driven by an ambitious virus stirring inside her, Julie Crane sets out on a quest to save her family from the clutches of a terrified government. Instead she’s abruptly caught in a web of intrigue…one that will betray her identity as Darwin’s Paradox and define the evolution of humankind.

Says Doctor Rhonda Low, host of “Your Health”–CTV News, and Clinical Associate Professor in the Dept. of Family & Community Medicine, University of British Columbia: “Loved Darwin’s Paradox! … A good neurology refresher for me! … The story is intricate … imaginative, and intelligent … The medical and scientific (premise is] … completely plausible and perhaps our fate … Sign me up for ‘neurgery’.”

“Munteanu [has] created an inventive and exciting future … a mystery virus … unsettling artificial intelligences … and an indomitable hero,” says Kay Kenyon, SF author of Bright of the Sky.

Robert J. Sawyer, Hugo and Nebula Award-winning author of Rollback, calls Darwin’s Paradox “a thrill ride that makes you think and tugs the heart.”

Darwin’s Paradox is Nina’s third novel. Her previous fiction was nominated for the Gaylactic Spectrum Award, Ecataromance Reviewers’ Choice Award, the Aurora Prix, and the Foundation of Speculative Literature’s Fountain Award. Praise for her previous fiction has been generous.

Tangent Online calls Angel’s Promises “A stunning example of good storytelling with an excellent setting and cast of characters.” Of her first novel, Collision with Paradise, Romantic Times says, “Munteanu presents a very intelligent story, with fantastic world-building…an intriguing tale.” Another Book Review Site said, “Munteanu asserts her mastery of the sensual SF romantic thriller. An unforgettable read that’s immensely alluring, surprising, and heart throbbing. The vivid intimate details, colorful descriptions, and wonderfully drawn characters leave one breathless and asking, when and where is the next book coming out?”

Nina holds a Masters Degree in Ecology from Concordia University (Montreal) and has taught university courses at Simon Fraser University, Douglas College and the University of Victoria. She has published over fifty scientific papers, technical reports and guides, including a controversial paper on “creative destruction”, which uses chaos theory to explore nature’s intelligence. Nina conducts research in risk analysis, pollution abatement and environmental protection as senior scientist with an environmental consulting firm in Vancouver, B.C.

A Book Tour is planned for Darwin’s Paradox, starting with a launch in Vancouver November 15 through 24. The tour will move to the Toronto area between November 28 and December 3. Nina’s New Year Tour kicks off in Seattle, WA in January, 2008; with stops in 12 major U.S. cities.

Darwin’s Paradox audiobook will be available Spring 2008, featuring Heather Dugan: The Voice of Darwin’s Paradox.

Nina’s award-winning blog, The Alien Next Door provides lively discussion on elements of science and science fiction, philosophy, and futurism, as well as spiritual and metaphysical issues.
