I am new and can you please tell me what, AW, AO AS ect. mean? Also I found the list of reading material, but I cannot click on it to order, do I need to go to different site to get it? or a local meeting? Thanks so much

Go to the Nar Anon Family Recovery Forum

That's where find all the topics.

Now scroll UP and look at the ANNOUNCEMENTS

Toward the bottom is one titled:

COMMON FORUM ABBREVIATIONS

While you are there, read the rest of the ANNOUNCEMENTS
There is much important info there.

Hi, I tried what you said, went to announcements, found the one about abbreviations, and when I click it, it says it is gone. there is nothing there. I ordered a lot of literature, not that it will have a list. I am thinking ABF is addict boy friend, AH addicted husband, if those are right let me know and I can figure it out, Thank you so much for everything.
