Make AA Safer For Newcombers

If someone makes you uncomfortable in any way, tell the secretary and friends and do not give them your contact information. A sponsor guides you through the steps and shares their experience as to how they have stayed sober.

We ALL deserve RESPECT and the right to get sober in a healthy empowered environment. Everyone regardless of race, color, gender, age, religion, creed, disability, and sexual orientation, all deserve a chance to get sober without harassment of any kind.

Like one old timer in Hawaii used to say “ the good, the bad, and the ugly are in AA just like on the street.”

Minors should not take rides from members of the opposite sex. There should always be another person with them, with one being of the same sex as the minor. Minors should not go alone to the house of an older sober member to do step work until trustworthiness is established. It is safer to do this work in a public area like a coffee shop.

Trust is earned.

MAKE AA SAFER FOR ALL MEMBERS

regarding behaviors that are adversely affecting the Atmosphere of Recovery in our meetings.

We are not a dating service or walking ATM’s! Sponsors and old timers should not abuse their position of power and authority. What is a trusted servant? Beware of all of them including those with a great pitch and a lot of sober time. It all means nothing “in the rooms”anymore.

Remember, if a crime is committed CALL THE POLICE and file that report. Tell the secretary of your home group and your sober friends if you are being harassed or if you feel uncomfortable. If they don’t support you and tell you to cover it up… contact us here at makeaasafer@gmail.com

  1. I saw this coming a long time ago, AA abusers and “the program” that protects them.
    My buddy once said “AA is the world’s largest walk-in nuthouse” Sad but true for those who are just seeking a sober life. Thank God today is not 1936 and there is good help out there for those who truly want it. If you want a relationship with God, go to a house of worship. You don’t have to buy Bill Wilson’s psycho religion and rooms full of criminals who AA protects and courts who put them there. Much success in your documentary film “Thirteenth Step”.

    1. Hi Dennis- “AA is the world’s largest walk-in nuthouse”

      My husband and I got a chuckle out of that one !

      I am glad we found HAMS Harm Reduction for someone we love. Also we used CRAFT for families and a well trained lovely, compassionate, PhD trained by Jeff Foote out of the Center for Motivation and Change in NYC>.
