RUN RUN FROM THE MADDNESS …
Have you been in and out of AA/NA? Have sponosrs told you to just do “another 4th step” Do you feel like AA is a cult? Have you been told to do more “service” ? Are tired of hearing readings from a book from 1939 being your design for living? Have AA memebers told you what medications you can or can not take? This and more are some reasons why people are running from 12 step meetings and it’s culture.
But what about the person who gets a DUI and is court ordered illegally to AA meetings. Know your rights. Ask for a non religious alternative , such as LifRing, Smart Recovery, Hams Harm REduction, Drink Link Moderation , On Track and Beyond, Amy Lee Coys WAY, Rational Recovery and SOS , Secualr Oranizations for Sobriety .
Join Monica aka massive for a 1 hour show on why AA doesnt work for some. What happens in AA today. How is this harmful to some and where else can a person get support and help.
I may read blogger gunthar 2000 version of Chapter 5 one more time for fun!!!

Hank Hayes will join in for 45 minutes

SOS -Secular for Sobriety- Save ourselves-has been around for 27 years. After Jim was unhappy with the AA model he created his own support groups and a new program which has a refreshing option other then 12 step. I will attend a meeting in two weeks in Hollywood so I can meet Jim and perhaps we can spread the word of more choices along with Smart, WFS, Rational, On Track and Beyond and Amy Lee Coy’s way and Kenneth Anderson -Harm Reduction and http://www.drinklinkmoderation.com
