    Thank you for providing this web site for LDS women. I am participating in the 12 step program for spouses and families of SA through the church and also am attending S-anon. The support is life changing, I want everyone to have it, most need it. This problem is not a spiritual deficiency but an illness of addiction. I have been married to an addict for 37 years and am just learning this. I beg the Church leaders to publicize this information in our wards and stakes Church wide. We need it Everywhere.
