... looky what your local hospitals are labelling drug addiction as now... a substance abuse disorder.
Behavior has nothing to do with an alcoholics actions.
. .What do I mean by that? An alcoholic will change his behavior at the drop of a hat. So what? This will not mean the alcoholic has changed his thinking... or subsequent actions.
. .You cannot threaten, shame, guilt, beg, nor reward an alcoholic into better actions nor a better life. It just won't work. An alcoholic will change their behavior for you while you are watching them, but will resort back to their own behavior once you take your eyes off them.
. .The only way an alcoholic changes their behavior is when they become repulsed by it and become willing to ask that it get removed. Guess Who removes the behavior?

A.A. without religion
.I think it's a great idea. Let those folks do what they need to do. If they cannot nor will not surrender to a God of their understanding, then don't.
.They can take on all the atheists and freethinkers they want and call it A.A. if they want. But folks who want the Lord's Prayer in their group can have that too. All you have to do is decide what's right for you.

Dr. Abram and Bill Wilson became friends after Bill had been seeking out a cure for his depression.
.Niacin, to the tune of up to 3000 mg per day, solved his depression.
.Bill tried to bring the use of Niacin to folks in A.A. and it worked brilliantly.
.The very folks in New York on the board of A.A. World Services that Bill W. helped appoint... he was friends with many of them... rejected his idea and said he had no business recommending folks take vitamins as he's not a doctor.
.So, it's the medical community that has a stanglehold on A.A.
.The use of vitamins and good nutrition will get many folks physiologically well. Good eating and the use of proper vitamins AND the use of the A.A. program is brilliant.
.Who would want to go hating on A.A.? The only folks I could understand hating A.A. would be evil people, Big Pharm, and radical atheists.
.Dr Mercola interviews Dr Andrew Saul
.Sorry link may not work here, so cut and paste this...
.Find out the truth for yourself, people. It's ok to be sober and healthy. It's ok to be spiritual and even religious if you want. Fuck the dickmouth atheists and money-grabbing pharm folks who tell you why A.A. is bad and why God does not exist.
.Find out for yourself what is true and what is bullshit.

I saw this nifty thread on SR tonight
. .To me, a sponsor is someone who tells you what to do and how to act and someone to give you advice until you drink, then they fire you.
.That's my experience.
.But then I found a sponsor who works with chronic slippers like me, he worked with me through a set of steps until I was done, now I'm sponsor-free.
.A sponsor is someone who points you to God That's it.
