I have found them very helpful since a member of my family is an alcoholic. I joined Al- Anon, which is for relatives and friends of alcoholics, and it continues to be a source of strength for me. Will you please print the following information from an Al- Aiion brochure? It may help others decide if they need help, loo. — Chicago Reader Dear Chicago: I will, indeed. Thank you for asking. Here it is: Millions of people are affected by the excessive drinking of someone close. The following 20 questions are designed to help you decide whether or not you need Al-Anon. 1. Do you worry about how much someone else drinks? 2. Do you have money problems because of someone else's drinking? 3. Do you tell lies to cover up for someone else's drinking? 4. Do you feel that if the drinker loved you, he or she would stop drinking to please you? 5. Do you tell yourself the drinker's behavior is caused by his or her companions? 6. Are routines frequently upscl or meals delayed because of the drinker? 7. Do you make threats such as, Ann Landers Utters to Ann Landers should be mailed to P.O. Box 11562, Chicago, III. 60611-0562 "If you don't stop drinking, I'll leave you"? 8. When you kiss the drinker hello, do you secretly try to smell his or her breath for traces of alcohol? 9. Are you afraid to upset the drinker for fear it will set off a drinking bout? 10. Have you been hurt or embarrassed by a drinker's behavior? 11. Does it seem as if every holiday is spoiled because of someone's drinking? 12. Have you considered calling the police for help when someone close to you becomes abusive after drinking? 13. Do you find yourself searching for hidden alcohol? 14. Do you continue to ride in a car with a driver who has been drinking, even though you know it is dangerous? 15. Have you refused social invitations because you fear the drinker might embarrass you? 16. Do you sometimes feel like a failure when you think of the lengths to which you have gone to control the drinker? 17. Do you think that if the drinker stopped drinking, your other problems would be solved? 18. Do you ever threaten to hurt yourself to scare the drinker? 19. Do you feel angry, confused and depressed most of the time? 20. Do you feel there is no one who understands your problems? If you have answered "yes" to three or more of these questions, Al-Anon or Alatecn may be of help. You can contact Al-Anon or Alateen by looking in your local telephone directory or by writing to: Al-Anon Family Group Headquarters, Inc., P.O. Box 862, Midtown Station, New York, N.Y. 10018-0862, or by calling 1-800356-9996. My Laugh for the Day: A speaker at a self-improvement seminar asked those in attendance if anyone present could say he is perfect. A man in the back row stood up. "Do you mean to tell me you are perfect?" asked the speaker. "No," the man replied. "I am standing as a proxy for my wife's first husband." What's your sign?
