THE SERENITY PRAYER

God, grant me the serenity

To accept the things I cannot change,

Courage to change the things I can,

And wisdom to know the difference.

AL-ANON Family Groups offer a wide range of literature covering topics relating to people affected by someone else's drinking.  You will find many of these publications available at AL-ANON meetings in Connecticut and elsewhere, including publications designed especially for AL-ANON beginners.  Many of these publications are made available for free at meetings through the donations of meeting participants.  Some, especially hard-cover books, are available at reasonable prices.  You can order AL-ANON literature through a local meeting, or order it directly from
