Don Lattin author of "Distilled Spirits" (ASIN: B0091OCCB6, ISBN-10: 0520272323, ISBN-13: 978-0520272323) gives quotes about LSD from Bill Wilson, Aldoux Huxley and Gerald Heard

I am certain that the LSD experience has helped me very much. I find myself with a heightened color perception and an appreciation of beauty almost destroyed by my years of depression…The sensation that the partition between "here" and "there" has become very thin is constantly with me.

Bill Wilson, 1957

3 people OD at West Palm Beach County (Ghetto "my interpretation) in one week on South Federal Highway in Lake Worth AA Area 15 District 8

In yet another string of OD's in sober homes in West Palm Beach in West palm Beach county, 3 sober home participants over dosed in one week. For those not familiar with Sober Homes they are set up as holding areas for addicts and mentally ill people until they can be placed in more main stream concentration camps such as Hazelden for around $1000 a day. Sober homes are more like the Ghettos that charge about $500 to a $1000 dollars a month for those that can not afford $1000 a day, do not have insurance or other things.

Does anyone have any statistics on how many Addicts/Alcoholics die in Detox or Rehab? We know it only has a 5% success rate. What happens to the other 95%?

Just wndering? We hear about a lot of people dying in sober home ghettos and people dying in 28 day wilderness camps and rehabs, Are there any statistics on these numbers, or are they hidden from the public and don't make major news headlines?

Why Alcoholics Anonymous targets the low lifes of Society

Simple answer is that they are easy targets. The Benedict Arnold of the faux Anti-AA site in London doesn't believe in using history (he calls them conspiracy theories) the thing is that the study of history is to prevent prior tragedies from happening. again. I guess he doesn't believe that England was the 2nd main cause of slavery in the US and that they used the main English Jamestown, NJ colony to import and sell these slaves. I guess he doesn't have the intelligence to learn from history which prevents things like this from happening again...

The most idiotic claim that AA makes is it is an upside down pyramid. First off the individual

The most idiotic claim that AA makes is it is an upside down pyramid. First off the individual groups do not publish and print the prospect instruction manuals of the Big Book or the 12&12. In fact the adjunct books of Living Sober and the International magazine of propaganda commonly called the Grapevine is not published or printed by the individual groups in AA. They are propaganda and prospect instruction manuals published and printed by the high priest/priestess at the Interchurch Center on 475 Riverside Drive in NYC.

AA Tradition 8 as first presented by Bill Wilson in the A.A. Grapevine, April 1946. Why was Tradition 8 written and what does it have to do with AA 12 Steps? Were Bill W and Dr. Bob compensated for 12th Step Work?

8. Alcoholics Anonymous should remain forever non-professional. We define professionalism as the occupation of counseling alcoholics for fee or hire. But we may employ alcoholics where they are going to perform those full-time services for which we might otherwise have to engage nonalcoholics. Such special services may be well recompensed. But personal Twelfth Step work is never to be paid for.

‘Jails, Institutions or Death’ words of wisdom from the "bibles" of AA written (plagiarized?) by Bill Wilson in the "Big Book" and 12&12"

Therefore, we are disciplined by the spiritual principals of the steps and a higher power of our own understanding. Just as every AA member takes the steps to the best of their ability, each AA group as a whole must follow the traditions…
