Ironically though, for newcomers to Nar-anon, the triple or three C’s provide a greatly welcomed and needed sense of relief. I know for me, hearing those words was the beginning of hope, because with the acceptance of these tenets, I started to learn what I was able to do for my son and what I was not able to do for him.
I did not Cause it
I cannot Control it
I cannot Cure it
We all come here looking for answers ….. and while my answers may be different than the answers of someone else, I know one thing to be true ….. learning and accepting the “Triple Cs” (of the non-medicinal type) marked the beginning of my recovery.
