Can't seem to find the money!!!!!

Recently I was trying to find some information which involved going through the GSB Form 990 tax returns. This site seemed to have all the information I needed :- http://www.eri-nonprofit-salaries.com/index.cfm?FuseAction=NPO.Form990&E...

Is Psychiatry and the new DSM-5 (Diagnostic Statistical Manual) learning from Alcoholics Anonymous and the Big Book how to write circular logic?

The fifth edition of the Diagnostic Statistical Manual (DSM-5, DSM-V) is planning on hitting the book stores next month. The DSM-5 is the new bible of the liberal artists that define mental illness, addiction and the substances or actions that they diagnose people with for a few hundred dollars an hour and then send them to rehab at about a $1000 a day. With this new tool, scam artists will be able to spawn newer cottage industries that they can get insurance companies to pay for.

The 'Program' is perfect, but the people are not

This diet is perfect but the people who follow it are imperfect, that's why most people on this diet gain weight. The law firm is perfect but the lawyers are not, so you'll have to put up with the fact most cases the firm takes on are lost. Our government is perfect but the elected officials are not so just smile and let them pass any law they want - don't complain. Corporate America is perfect but the people running the corporations aren't, so don't complain about the economy crashing - just put up with those imperfect greedy bastards.

The Program

Not posted for a while, maybe a break was what was needed to really realise the absolute nonsense of this 12 step thing. I know this thing kills and screws minds up, but this book, the BB, is total garbage. I dont understand now how I ever took this stepper garbage serious.

How they get you

This is from a story titled A Drunk Like You in the 4th edition of the Big Book. Notice the shifting that goes on here on pg 399-400: http://www.alcoholics-anonymous.org.uk/bigbook/pdf/theystoppedintime15.pdf 1) Dude goes and sees Liberal Artist Therapist. 2) Liberal Artist Therapist tells Dude to limit his drinking to 5 a day. 3) Dude successfully limits himself to 5 drinks a day.

A Pathway of a Different Sort

I keep going to AA meetings even though they lost much of their attraction. Actually, I feel more disconnected with each meeting I attend. It never use to be this way, I always enjoyed a close kinship with the people of AA. For 24 years I've benefited from the groups' wisdom, the camaraderie, and watching people rise above dreadful conditions. I've taken pleasure connecting with AA members and I liked the feeling of being accepted no matter what AA door I passed through whether the door was in another city or another state. AA has given me a rewarding life filled with many friendships.

Not Beholden to the Cult of AA / yes I know I am speaking to the choir

There was a time that I " drank like a pig " probably threw up more alcohol than some folks consumed. Did this for quite few years and at one point was conned into believing ,when I was very young to seek out AA, with promises of fellowship, connections, and "true happiness' in the form of sobriety.

All You Need Is AA

AA, AA, AA. AA, AA, AA. AA, AA, AA. There's nothing you can do that can be done. Nothing you can drink that can be drunk. Nothing you can say but you can learn how to play the game. It's easy. Nothing you can make that can be made. No one you can save that can be saved. Nothing you can do but you can learn how to be someone else in time. It's easy. All you need is AA. All you need is AA. All you need is AA, AA. AA is all you need. All you need is AA. All you need is AA. All you need is AA, AA. AA is all you need. Nothing you can know that is known. Nothing you can see that isn't shown.

Alcoholics Anonymous: God-Based AA program Harms

http://religionvirus.blogspot.com/2010/04/christian-shocker-god-based-aa... Monday, April 26, 2010 Christian Shocker: God-Based AA Program Harms Alcoholics Did you know that the Alcoholics Anonymous twelve-step program, which has God as the foundation of its program, doesn't work? Not only doesn't it work, but many scientific studies have shown pretty clearly that it does more harm than good! What's more, it appears that the religious component of the AA program is the culprit.

Did Bill W start AA as a con from the very beginning?

In one of his earlier writing (can't remember which, but someone will) Bill W stated that you had to approach several hundred alcoholics to get just a handful interested. Did Bill W accidentally come across the spontaneous remission rate for alcoholics and turn it to his own advantage?

A letter complaining about the religious nature of AA

This has been posted before, maybe a year ago or so, but I can't find it, so here goes again. I think it succinctly covers the heretical nature of AA. I wonder how many church basements would still have AA meetings in them if the clergy knew the truth? Any comments Larry? "Dear Father XXX
