The Non-Alcoholic, Non-Addicts Speaking for the Cult of Alcoholics Anonymous, Harry Tiebout and George Vaillant

One of the tactics of the apologetic Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) faith is to claim that someone is not an Alcoholic or Addict and has no knowledge or ability to even speak about the rehabilitative (or lack of) qualities of Bill Wilson inspired Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) chanting and confessional rituals and ceremonies because of this. Oftentimes these same people base "facts" about AA on these same non-alcoholic "trustees" of the AA faith and call them "Friends of Alcoholics Anonymous."

Have you been declared an "Alcoholic" using DSM-IV-TR Alcohol related 303.90 Dependence or 305.00 Abuse? - the new DSM5 proposal

The "Big Book" of Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) has for nearly eight decades been used by untrained and non-professional cult members of AA to talk people into self diagnosing themselves as an "Alcoholic." The current Diagnostic Statistical Manual, fourth edition, third revision (DSM-IV-TR) does not use the term "Alcoholic" but instead uses the alcohol related codes of 303.90 Dependence or 305.00 Abuse. Normally the progression goes from Abuse to Dependence with the layman's normal term of "Alcoholic" assigned to people coded with 303.90 Dependence.

Did Massachusetts member of Alcoholics Anonymous chapter complain "AA anonymity should be respected" ?- Oct 3, 2012

In a backlash from what appears to be a member of Alcoholics Anonymous in General Service Area 30 in Massachusetts (http://www.aaemass.org), a reader writes to the Wicked Local Plymouth newspaper complaining that "AA anonymity should be respected" due to an article written Sep 22, 2012 about Henry Mahon, 19 who was arrested for setting fire to St Bonaventure Parish (Plymouth), 799 State Rd., Manomet, MA in which Alcoholics Anonymous was mentioned three times and the words "GOD DID IT" were prominently displayed in the title.

AAWS Guidelines for AA members on use of the Internet - MG-18 A.A. Guidelines - Internet - Alcoholics Anonymous

It has come to my attention that Alcoholics Anonymous members have been breaking the "MG-18 A.A. Guidelines - Internet - Alcoholics Anonymous" published by Alcoholics Anonymous World Services, Inc. (AAWS) at the Interchurch Center on 475 Riverside Drive in New York. Per directives from the AA Interchurch main office, AA members are not supposed to be going to places such as the Orange Papers Forum (OPF) and engaging in arguments over "Spirituality", "AA members", "Groups" and many other things.

Debunking the 36% Retention Lie

Last week danny posted some figures quoted by Loran Archer, claiming AA has a 36% retention rate. I said I would debunk this claim. Sorry it took so long, but I’ve been very busy. The 36% I’m using is from graph from the triennial surveys from 77-89 and shows the distribution of AA members with differing lengths of sobriety (they are conflating retention with sobriety). It shows an average of 36% of AA members are newcomers with less than a year.

Alcoholics Anonymous attendance used against Air Force promotion - October 1, 2012

People are finding out that attendance and participation in the cult of Alcoholics Anonymous is detrimental to your future career path, especially if you are Master Sgt. Russell Granger of the US Air Force.

How can you prove that you or anyone else is a member of Alcoholics Anonmyous? The apologetic AA trolls want to know....

One of the most common means of deception of the apologetic internet missionaries of the cult of Alcoholics Anonymous is to claim that someone is not a member of one of the 12 Step cults that Bill Wilson spawned when he founded Alcoholics Anonymous to fund his adulterous lifestyle. Common excuses are, "you aren't a member", "they weren't a member" and "you have no proof they are a member."

Divorce, Murder, Arson by AA member David Trauger, 67 in Georgia AA Area 16 - Aug 13, 2012

David Trauger, 67 was the owner of a Great Harbour trawler berthed at St. Marys Boat yard in Camden County, Georgia and on Aug 13, 2012 something went terribly wrong with this Alcoholics Anonymous member in General Service Area 16 (http://www.aageorgia.org/). As is all too often reported in the rooms of AA, Mr. Trauger was going through a divorce and had sought help by the untrained and unprofessional Evangelists of Alcoholics Anonymous who are not qualified and obviously not very good at helping David Trauger.
