claim it doesn't happen in AA despite all of the reports saying it does.
"Tradition 10 - Alcoholics Anonymous has no opinion on outside issues; hence the AA name ought never be drawn into public controversy." Please follow orders from the Interchurch Center if you are an AA member and don't comment.

You know you are brainwashed if you think you have to share to the group intimate details of your life that nobody in the real world would tell to anyone other than their closest confidants because "you're only as sick as your secrets."
Gawd, I could have really done without hearing that.
Tue, 04/24/2012 - 14:52
You did go to a strange place. I was never made to reveal to the group.

Tue, 04/24/2012 - 15:12

when you believe that what you find in today's 12-step meetings - inappropriate disclosure of personal details or a demand to do so, financial fleecing, assaults, rapes and murders, just to name a few - honestly and accurately characterize the program of Alcoholics Anonymous.

When you minimize and make excuses for the financial fleecing, assaults, rapes and murders, just to name a few of the current stories that are now hitting the papers nearly daily as not being what is happening in the rooms of Alcoholics Anonymous.
Tue, 04/24/2012 - 15:45
You know you're brainwashed if you won't consider that 12 step groups are potentially dangerous, but are aware of their unprofessional structure, lack of authority, soliciting policies, and slogan mantras .
You know you're brainwashed if you think the 12 steps even cures pedophilia.
Tue, 04/24/2012 - 16:10
Gosh, who thinks that?
Tue, 04/24/2012 - 16:14
don't read the verified reports of pedophiles being sent to AA and claim that you aren't registered so you can't read them, even though you don't have to be registered to read or post.
Tue, 04/24/2012 - 15:55
you know your brainwashed if you think AA is dangerous but you went there for 10 years or more and the worst thing that happened was someone made a pass at you. :0
You know your brainwashed if you feel the need to ask your sponsor how to handle your life.
Tue, 04/24/2012 - 16:00
If you think that AA meetings are safer than McDonalds.
Tue, 04/24/2012 - 16:07
Ya know your brainwashed if you attended AA 2 years or less or not at all but your on an anti-aa forum 4 yrs later still bitchin about it :0

Tue, 04/24/2012 - 16:16
You know you're brainwashed if
you encouarge your wife to join AlAnon
you start smoking to fit in with cult
you pray to higher power to find lost car keys
you call sponsor because you were told to
On introducing yourself, in the real world, you say "Hello, my name's...." and can't help adding "and I'm an alcoholic"
Tue, 04/24/2012 - 16:17

Tue, 04/24/2012 - 16:25
you know that a knitting old lady will most likely be sentenced to AA or NA when she gets out of jail and you still say that a knitting old lady at an AA meeting is safe.

If you spend your entire day on this site. People get a life, please!!!
You are brainwashed if you believe what you are doing here makes any difference. It doesn't. You are the far right whackaloons.
