CAL – Item # P-7 – A Guide for the Family of the Alcoholic

Leave a comment

P-7WHAT I LEARNED:  1. This is the sixth pamphlet in the general Newcomer Packet & is one of the few examples of early “outside literature” being grandfathered into the CAL catalog.  It was issued in 1962 & is primarily based on an article by a non-member: the former director of the Charlotte Council on Alcoholism.

2. This pamphlet focuses on the disease & reads like a mini dissertation on its psychological effects.  The “bad check” analogy is fantastic!

**BONUS: A few years later, a talk from the author of this pamphlet was also used as the basis for another pamphlet which just happens to be my top seller…  (Hint: see item #P-3!)
