Read this for the comments section

This article isn't in itself saying anything new on the topic of addiction being a disease, however, the comments section underneath the article is fascinating. It contains the most varied collection of opinions on addiction I have ever come across. It pretty much covers the whole spectrum of opinions on whether or not addiction is a disease and whether or not the 12 Step Program is helpful/dangerous etc. and everything in between.

Stepper Cult Tip

Don't ask a doorknob to give you spiritual advice when you've dropped an Acid might just do that

(Sick) Stepper Cult Joke

When is a lying, scare-mongering, control freak and sexual predator.....NOT a lying scare-mongering, control freak and sexual predator? When they are a 12 step spiritual guru and 12 step life coach

Caroline Aherne RIP

It is with great sadness that I heard of the death of Caroline Aherne from Cancer at the age of 52 as the main story on the News at the weekend. She was a truly great comedian and always managed to have me laughing fit to burst, whether as Mrs Metron or in the Royle Family on TV. Heaven will be far funnier with her in it. Thank you Caroline for hours of laughter, even in my depths of alcoholism and drug addiction always managed to make me laugh and I like to laugh.....thanks

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.


Somme Centenary

Its a hundred years yesterday since the 'bloodiest day' in British Military History.....the Battle of the Somme. At 7.30 am 1st July 1916 the men went over the top, by the end of the day 19240 of these men had died. There have been remembrance events across the UK and France. The Battle raged for a 141 days during which time a million men died on all sides. The name Somme has come to be synonymous with the senseless slaughter of the Great War. It is good these men and their ultimate sacrifice are always remembered every year

Russell Brand Full Interview for promoting AA/NA

At about 8:10 Peter Hitchens destroys Brand. Personally I am of the opinion that drugs should be purchased at the Pharmacy as long as you can prove your age, pay a tax and sign a waiver, but I sure love the way Hitchens destroys Brand, and the highlights the fact that the Rehabs don't work either.

Referendum + day 5

Well its day 5 after Britain voted to leave the EU and there has been NO World War 3, no signs of any Martians or other aliens invading the Earth, all the kittens have NOT exploded and the world has not ended. Are we now safe from the impending doom promised by the Remain Camp?.....or should we still hold our breath? Over to you Janus

RIP to my friend

Just heard a friend and former drinking partner of mine has died. He left the chip pan on and burned himself alive when intoxicated. We hope he was so drunk that he did not feel any pain when he passed over.

ASAM plan to have doctors drug test Almost everyone using non- FDA approved testing

This is appalling. ASAM is so crooked that they should all get busted and put out of business.

Maia Szalavitz: "Can You Get Over an Addiction?"

More good stuff from Maia Szalavitz

I did not know, until I read this story, that Maia has also been through the mill (so to speak) -- that she has also battled addiction personally.

The UK leaves the EU

As an active member of the Leave Campaign, I wish to thank ALL fellow Brits for their continued help with the Leave Campaign and for Voting to Leave the EU. History was made last night and this morning.......THANKS TO YOU ALL

Narconan or 12 Step Rehab. What's worse? June 17, 2016

Whatever you think of the congealed puddle of lawsuits and evil known as Scientology, you've got to admire their ambition: They run churches, schools, and even a space Navy. They haven't even let their extremely limited understanding of drugs and medicine stop them from treating drug addicts!

Muhamad Ali Brainwashed by a Cult

AKA Muhammad Ali (Cassius Clay Jr.) was in a cult more dangerous, hateful, deadly, and destructive then AA and was openly a racist organization, but no one seems to mention it with his passing. It's sad how he such a charismatic and talented man could be duped by Elijah Muhammad Not sure why no one really brings it up.
