The Forum

Readers are members who are already attending Al-Anon. Members share how the various tools of the program including the Twelve Steps, Traditions, and Concepts of Service have helped them find - and keep recovery.

  • Members can subscribe to The Forum throughout the year

  • Individual copies of The Forum are now available on Amazon and Kobo for $1.49 (U.S.) and Apple iTunes for $1.99 (U.S.). An annual electronic subscription is available from Barnes & Noble for $11 (U.S.) with individual copies for $1.49 (U.S.).

Keep your eye out for the "CAL Corner" where each month members' share on how a particular piece of our literature has enhanced their recovery. They would especially like sharings about Discovering Choices (B-30), Lois Remembers (B-7), One Day at a time in Al-Anon (B-6), and the Paths to Recovery Workbook (P-93).

Three ways to share


Al-Anon Faces Alcoholism - now shipped all year

This change in the ordering process will help members be able to distribute the magazines throughout the year, and will make it possible to replenish supplies left at professionals’ offices, libraries, and public places.

The content is designed for families of alcoholics who are unfamiliar with our program. Members write about their own denial, or share how they overcame the fear of reaching out for Al-Anon's help. Members share hope, understanding, and compassion for the alcoholic's illness and its effects on the family. Articles by professionals and basic information about Al-anon are included. AFA motivates readers to start attending Al-Anon.
