“As the silent sufferers—the hall monitors—of the recovery community, Al-Anon and co-dependent lives are the stuff of country music lyrics. We’ve got a reputation for taking the fun out of a party and popping all the balloons afterward.
Until now.”

If You Leave Me

Recovering co-dependent Misti B. was inspired to write If You Leave Me, Can I Come with You? by the peals of laughter often coming out of the Twelve Step meeting room. Although the difficulties faced by those dealing with the harsh realities of substance abuse are no laughing matter, many find that in overcoming these challenges, humour is an essential component in their recovery.

If You Leave Me, Can I Come with You? from Hazelden Publishing, contains a meditation for each day of the year, packed with Misti B.’s warmth, wisdom and healthy irreverence. From learning how to integrate each of the Steps into day-to-day life to the perils of dating as an Al-Anon, Misti B.’s humorous insights guide and comfort through life in recovery.

If You Leave Me, Can I Come with You?: Daily Meditations for Codependents and Al-Anons...with a Sense of Humor is available to order from the Eurospan bookstore here.
