Why PEOPLE turn into SHEEPLE!

So You’ve endured your first meeting, sitting as far in the back and trying to be as invisible as possible, when the congregation of sheeple join hands to recite the Lord’s Prayer. As you are heading towards the exit, a few sheeple give you creepy smiles, a handshake or a pat on the back and utter “keep coming back”.

Seldom does AA work without the HP Concept..

N.Y. STATE JOURNAL OF MEDICINE Vol. 50, July, 1950. "Seldom, indeed, does AA work without the Higher Power concept. We have verified that fact thousands of times." ~Bill Wilson As it has already been determined, Alcoholics Anonymous doesn't work anyway. But here is Bill saying that it doesn't work without the HP concept. Throw out the science aspect (cough, that Bill claims AA is partly construed of), and throw out the "one alcoholic helping another" aspect as well, because it all boils down to God.

Alcoholics Anonymous (AA): When AA Fails

When AA Fails When Alcoholics Anonymous fails you, harm reduction may be the solution There is a very common myth in circulation which says that the only cure for a "true alcoholic" is to go to AA and that anyone who quits drinking without AA is not a "true alcoholic". This myth was created by AA but actually it has no basis in fact.

AA Exposed on National TV.

The show will air on Tuesday, July 16th and not today as originally thought.

How did it happen???

On another site somebody wondered out loud how is it possible that people get duped into falling into the AA trap. One person stated that it is because people are vulnerable when they get there. I added a bit more to that true observation and here it is.... Powercoll, you totally nailed the biggest factor. People entering AA for the first time are big-time vulnerable, scared shitless and DESPERATE! They WANT to believe that this will work. The cult, of course knowing this, designed some pretty nifty sales/guilt pitches to lock you in the second you walk through the doors.

Robert Warner, the man who successfully sued the probation department for sending him to AA and author of A.A.- How Alcoholics Anonymous Steals Your Soul on Blogtalkradio Safe Recovery June 9, 2013

Please join activist Monica Richardson and Mr. Robert Howard Warner, the man who successfully sued the Orange County (NY) Department of Probation for violating the establishment clause of the United States Constitution by forcing him to attend the RELIGIOUS services of Alcoholics Anonymous, for a special 1/2 hour show on Blog Talk Radio, Safe Recovery on June 9, 2013.

"The first edition of Alcoholics Anonymous has been public domain since 1967, when AA failed to renew its copyright on the text. AA also failed to renew the copyright on the second edition, causing it to lapse in 1983."

Interestingly enough, since we are talking about the copyright of the "Big Book" of Alcoholics Anonymous, TheFix has picked up on the story with all of the details. You see unlike The Shining where the author is still alive and the copyright is still intact and you can be sued for copyright infringement, Alcoholics Anonymous World Services, Inc (AAWS) has failed to register the copyright 2 times and the author(s) is/are dead.
Is the Big Book Shrinking?

How the General Service Organization (GSO) of Alcoholics Anonymous gets you in touch with criminals in Jail. Remember that AA isn't for just DUI. Rapists, murderers and scam artists go also and you won't know.

The General Service Organization (GSO) of Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) has devised a way for people to become pen pals with people incarcerated in jails and prisons in the hopes of eventually bringing them to Church Basements, Sober Homes and Alano Clubs in your area. The only problem is that you won't know if they have been incarcerated for murder, rape or financial scams until after you write them and only if they admit to it.

The Al-Anon inspired Divorce Coach - "Getting Up, Getting Over, Getting On: A Twelve Step Guide to Divorce Recovery" by Micki McWade

"About the Author - I wrote this book to share the wisdom I originally gained in Al-Anon and from facilitating a Twelve Step Divorce Recovery Group for nine years. Having practiced the Twelve Steps in daily life, I realized they can be applied to divorce as well as addiction and were immensely helpful to me and to everyone who used them. The Twelve Steps were a roadmap for me as I navigated my way through my own divorce. I wanted to divorce differently from the war stories I had heard. Four children were between us and we owed it to them to be good co-parents.

Boniface homily

Again, I have to ask steppers the seemingly unanswerable question: Why would Boniface, who sacrificed his life preaching against paganism (and Protestantism), come back from the grave to help Bill Wilson write the 12&12 where, "A.A.'s tread innumerable paths in their quest for faith. If you don't care for the one I've suggested, you'll be sure to discover one that suits if only you look and listen"? 12&12 Step Two, p.27.

Bummed out on the 4th of July

I'm about to rant. My feelings are hurt. I'm almost over it, though.... Backstory: I left the Cult a little over a year ago. Thank goodness! I had been in & out of those rooms since 1989. I use to be a very popular person in their cult. Didn't matter what state in this country I was living in. I was the cheering, upbeat cheerleader. I was the fun person to be around. The decorator during all the holidays. The person who got (some, not many) folks involved in having fun events outside the roomz. I had a lot of friends back then - or what I thought were friends.

The Times of India Reports major problems in Drug and Alcohol Rehab Industry leading to little less than torture - July 2013

At a time when Alcoholics Anonymous of India ( is attempting to target women in India and perform "interventions" on them under the guise of "helping" them, the Times of India reports that the "rehabs" they are being sent too are sub standard and little more than torture.

Alcoholics Anonymous No Booze But Plenty of Babes (an oldy but a goody. 1954)

Alcoholics Anonymous No Booze But Plenty of Babes Some AA’s go to meetings to hear how to stay dry. The others-well, many have discovered their club is a faster spot for a pick-up than the best saloon in town!

My answer to Gunthar

I do agree with your latest blog Gunthar. I now find it boring to constantly talk about this cult, even Orange says exposing this dangerous lying misinforming cult is dirty work, but someone has to do it....'that AA really was a religious cult dressed up to look like a treatment for alcoholism, and that somehow AA should be exposed as a fraudulent religion that takes advantage of vulnerable people in their greatest hour of need'........that says it all about steppism in one sentence.

Dissection of Step Words (Part VII)

Haven't done this in a while, but I think I have finally found the right word to dissect. It was hard from all the words and diagnoses and codes...but I had to come to grips with it. I was being to intellectual. I was thinking I could CONTROL what word I was going to write about. I had no control, and I had to push my ego aside for....denial! THAT'S RIGHT! Its a bit of denial time, yet I will deny it and plead the fifth if anyone gets me in front of a court! As usual, Stepper, the Definition, then My "Dissection".

AA sucks


Akron Alcoholic Anonymous -TRADITION 11

Founder's Day 2013 in Akron Ohio, Home of Alcoholics Anonymous has went to far this year! Proof lies in picture attached. -Tradition 11 - "Our public relations policy is based attraction rather than PROMOTION; we need always maintain personal ANONYMITY at the level of press , radio, and films."- AA members of Akron Oh, have allowed their children/ grand children's pictures to be displayed publicly in the Press( Akron Beacon Journal) ,using their FULL NAMES,even worse than that they are making money off of these pic's of their children/ grandchildren.


You know sometimes you have to sit back and reflect back and evaluate what gave you a certain vibe or conviction that you couldn’t quite put your finger on at the time. I kind of go through that process every now and again and new things always come to me when trying to figure out just why I knew, deep down in my gut on an intuitive level, that “the rooms” were a total clusterfuck.

Wall Street Journal (WSJ) Letters to the editor takes issue with Gabrielle Glaser's "Why She Drinks" (Review, June 22, 2013) - Emergence of Gender Equality in Alcohol-Use Disorders

In letters to the editor of the Wall Street Journal, three people take issue with the article by Gabrielle Glaser's "Why She Drinks." The issues seem to revolve around misconceptions by people who have not been informed of the problems in Alcoholics Anonymous because of the request for "anonymity" that AA sends to the media every year ( and the facts that they do not even read the information put out by the Alcoholics Anonymous US based home office on the 10th and 11th floors of the Interchurch Center
