Recent terrorist attacks

The news is full of stories about the recent terrorist attacks in Belgium. Coincidentally, there is also a story about how Boka Haram suicide bombers attacked a refuge camp in Nigeria.

Bernie Sanders Town Hall: We must rethink the failed war on drugs.

What is amazing is how few Presidential candidates seem to have a working brain.
This is all so obvious, and yet, almost nobody gets it.

Pay-to-pray scam

Another pay-for-prayer scam:

http://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2016/mar/20/pay-to-pray-scam-washington-christian-prayer-center-online

It reminds me of the "Tower of Prayer" operating in Tulsa, Oklahoma, some years back. The workers there just opened the envelopes and took out the checks, and ignored the letters that begged for prayers for someone or some thing. There was no tower filled with praying people.

Told you all there was going to be a follow up story about the Elan Corporation/Center/ school.

As an Elan activist and Elan survivor , it makes the past 16 years of speaking out about this sadistic, brutal, violent soul eating hell hole - just all the more worth it.

NA Degenercy on full display taking over a public park

My deep respect for the creator of the NADAYTONA site.

Pictures say a thousand words.
I dare anyone to defend NA taking over a park, and then threatening all the other citizens like a bad motorcycle movie from the 70's

Great Article - I believe I have talked about the death of Phil Williams from a hot box session he received from Elan 's notorious ring, many times before and not just here - looks like some one listened . Now you can read about it in news print.

There is going to be a follow up story - you can bet on that.

ATLANTIC MONTHLY: The Irrationality of Alcoholics Anonymous

This may be old news to some, but I just found it:

The Irrationality of Alcoholics Anonymous

Its faith-based 12-step program dominates treatment in the United States. But researchers have debunked central tenets of AA doctrine and found dozens of other treatments more effective.

The 'Tonight' programe ITV 7.30pm: Alcohol - How much is Too Much?

New guidelines had been issued in the UK, that cut recommended drinking limits to reduce health risks, and the UK's Chief Medical Officers state that research shows any amount of alcohol can increase the risk of cancer. John Maitland investigates and asks how safe a pint or glass of wine really is? I believe this matter concerns us all.

Happy Saint Patricks Day

I was born in England of Irish and English parents (They were both good people, I have no complaints); my Mother being born in Dublin, my Father was English. I consider myself as Anglo-Irish and realise we are big enough to be a race ourselves.

In the United States, how a Bill becomes a Law

First, a Recovery book is written called The Big Book then you follow that Book up with a companion book that outlines and further illustrates the first Book.

That is how a Bill becomes a Law. By writing the Big Book Bill Wilson became the LAW on recovery in the United States. That Law has become the Law of the Land. The True Path.

This is evidenced by the fact that a state legislature recently voted to extend immunity to recovery sponsors.

This post was inspired by the recent JR "Violin" Harris comment

UK Daily Mail Newspaper: Headlines Saturday March 12th 2016

These are the Daily Mails front cover headlines last Saturday(12/03/2016). The UK Newspaper then goes on to claim that, it has emerged last night, that the true scale of immigration to the UK by EU citizens is being kept secret by Government officials. Top Civil Servants led by Her Majesty’s Revenues and Customs (HMRC) boss Lin Homer, are refusing to publish figures that could reveal up to 1.3 million extra migrants living in Britain. If it was revealed, the data could have an explosive impact on the EU debate.

What is "Real" Addiction?

12 Step Program Members (like Janus) claim that there is a difference between people that become addicted due to self medication (or other reasons) and so-called "real" addicts that become addicted because of "life". The latter are supposedly powerless, completely defenseless against using drugs/alcohol, unable to get or stay clean without the program. This is completely illogical.

Governor Jay Inslee of Washington State Vetoes Bill (SB 6498 - 2015-16) for testimonial privileges for alcohol and drug addiction recovery sponsors.

SOBERNATION reported on March 8, 2016 that SB 6498 (http://apps.leg.wa.gov/billinfo/summary.aspx?bill=6498) was passed in the Senate that would give testamentary privilege for alcohol or drug addiction recovery sponsors in certain Civil Suits. The Bill was signed by the President of the Senate on March 3, 2016 and signed by the Speaker of the House on March 4, 2016 and delivered to Governor Jay Inslee who vetoed the Bill on March 10, 2016.

The joyous job of looking for prospects in Alcoholics Anonymous. Direct from the AA Bible commonly called the 'Big Book" on page 96....

It may mean sharing your money and your home, counseling frantic wives and relatives, innumerable trips to police courts, sanitariums, hospitals, jails and asylums. Your telephone may jangle at any time of the day or night. Your wife may sometimes say she is neglected. A drunk may smash the furniture in your home, or burn a mattress. You may have to fight with him if he is violent. Sometimes you will have to call a doctor and administer sedatives under his direction. Another time you may have to send for the police or an ambulance.

Is the UK's referendum on EU membership on June 23rd, relavent to an Anti Stepper Cult Forum?

I'd say a definite yes. When I was last at AA, they were bragging that they had a polish speaking meeting in the UK. I've also seen a polish BB for sale at a treatment centre. To be honest I wish ALL stepper cult meetings/indoctrination sessions in the UK were polish speaking and all BB's were written in polish, that way British people would no longer be indoctrinated by the cult. We'd still have the problem of Eastern Europeans under cutting us for our labouring jobs and flooding our Schools and NHS and sending our Tax Credits out of the country back to Eastern Europe though.

Today's Sun Newspaper

British people who read the OPF ought also to read the front page headlines and page 5 of the 'Sun' Newspaper today, before they vote in the referendum on June 23rd

SMART Recovery meeting being held at an AA Alano Club

I attended a few SMART meetings a couple of years ago at or around the time I decided to leave AA. At the time they had just started meetings in my area and only had one meeting a week. For no particular reason I decided to go on their web site and see if SMART had increased their footprint in my area. They had, they have added about 5 to 6 more meetings a week. To my surprise one of them is being held at an Alano Club. This concerns me.

Terror Threat from Europol if the UK leaves the EU

So the British Director of Europol has warned that if the UK leaves the EU we could be expose.d to a terror threat? So is British security dependent on being a member of the EU and if so, when did this happen? Is this true or just another example of more scaremongering by the pro EU camp to frighten British Voters into electing to stay in the EU?
