Thoughts About the A.A. Organization

"It may seem presumptous to question anything that Bill Wolson wrote." ( May 16, 1994) http://aamo.info/dl/THOUGHTS_ABOUT_THE_AA_ORGANIZATION.pdf Interesting thoughts written by somebody in AA, and they don't sound happy. The document discusses how the AA Headquarters in New York has come into control of the fellowship of AA. The Trustess of the GSB control the fellowship and that AA is actually structered and ran like a corporation. Oh dear!

Alcoholics Anonymous sued for harboring a predator that killed Karla Brada - Sept. 2012

A few of you may remember Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) member Eric Allen Earle who is currently being held on a million dollar bail for allegedly strangling his AA girlfriend Karla Brada on Aug. 31, 2011. Her parents are doing the right thing and suing Alcoholics Anonymous because it allowed an atmosphere where Karla was Sponsored by a male AA member Patrick Frye and acted as a kind of "marriage counselor" (for lack of a better word). It turns out that Frye and Earle may have actually met in jail. The lawsuit....

live_free_or_die comes here to harass members

As we have seen many times before the only reason lfod comes to this site is to harass and abuse other members. Very seldom does lfod bring a thought provoking educational post here. His misogynistic tendencies are despicable and not necessary at all. Ifod please keep your issues concerning women to yourself. Here is a blog lfod posted about becket. Everyone here knows becket is a woman but for months now ifod has felt it necessary to disrespect her here by referring to becket as a male. "Judge becket and [his] inaccuracies."

Alcoholics Anonymous: A Case of Suicide and Who is Responsible

An employee of a company committed suicide as a result of stress and conflict the employee came under as a result of conditions at work. Can the company be held responsible for the employee's suicide? *********************************************************************************************** Dorothy Paton v. Commissioner., United States Tax Court - Memorandum Decision, T.C. Memo. 1992-627, Docket No. 21786-88., Filed October 26, 1992 25.06.2008 Dorothy Paton v. Commissioner.

Judge becket and his inaccuracies

Judge becket said yesterday that his purpose here on the OPF was to stomp out the inaccuracies, mistruths, lies and fabrications that we anti-AAer’s post on the OPF. What are these inaccuracies, lies, fabrications and mistruths judge bucket? That Bill W. stole the copyright to the Big Book? No, this is true. That Bill W. was an adulterer? No, this one is true also. That Bill W. was a narcissist? Again, no, this one is true also.

Does anyone know the real numbers?

There is a constant battle being raged about the actual statistics of membership/retention/success rates of AA. I just thought it would be a good idea to get all of the information, pro and anti, together in one place and, just maybe, some truth may emerge.

Step One

Step 1) We admitted that we were powerless over alcohol-that our lives had become unmanageable Fairly easy to convince somebody who has lost control or thinks they have lost control of their alcohol consumption, especially if everybody in the group agrees (when parroting at the meeting at least) with the assertion. Also if they have been subjected to a Judgemental God type religion they may be more susceptible to this idea of personal powerlessness.

Comedian Justin Lee Collins does AA Step 4 Sexual Inventory on girlfriend Anna Larke - Practices Narcissistic Control - Sept 2012

Comedian Justin Lee Collins of the UK appears to be a fanatical control freak using Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) as a vehicle for domestic abuse. Forcing his girlfriend of 9 months, Anna Larke to do a sexual inventory where he "made girlfriend reveal all of her sexual experiences to record them in a notebook and insisted she sleep facing him" and wanting her to go to Alcoholics Anonymous rituals and ceremonies twice daily.

Live on a spiritual basis of life..... OR ELSE.

"To be doomed to an alcoholic death OR to live on a spiritual basis are not always easy alternatives to face. But it isn't so difficult. About half our original fellowship were of exactly that type. At first some of us tried to avoid the issue, hoping against hope we were not true alcoholics. But after a while we had to face the fact that we must find a spiritual basis of life - or else." BB p. 44

Stanton Peeles Assessment of Loran Archer and Research

http://peele.net/blog/100106.php
The most remarkable consequence of the second report was that the Director of the NIAAA, John DeLuca, and his executive assistant, Loran Archer (neither of whom had a research background), offered their own summary of its results. http://www.healthyplace.com/addictions/articles/denial-of-reality-and-of... <

The 95% First Year Dropout Myth by Loran Archer

http://hindsfoot.org/lorarch.html Some of the critics claim that modern A.A. has a dismally low success rate, only 5% or less. These figures, Archer says, are inaccurate and based on flawed statistics. They cannot be supported either from U.S. government research or from A.A.'s own careful records. THE CORRECT FIGURE IS A CLOSE TO 36% SUCCESS RATE, when measured in the same way that the government would evaluate success in treating diabetes, heart disease, or cancer.

Alcoholics Anonymous: Bill W.'s Legacy (a part of Recovery Month)

Is this Recovery Month? Let us give thanks to Bill W. The legacy of Bill W started in 1895, when he was born. Bill W’s parents abandoned him by the time he was 10 years old. Bill W. was forced to live with his mother’s grandparents in his early years. Bill W.’s father’s father had been an “alcoholic” who happened to have a religious experience on some mountain top in Vermont (sound familiar?).

Alcoholics Anonymous doesn't work for Robert Harris of Plymouth, UK - Sept 22, 2012

Twenty-four year old Robert Harris of Plymouth, UK has been involved in about 50 incidents with law enforcement in his short drinking career. He realizes he has a problem with drinking and has tried to use the Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) program, but it has failed him. The program of AA does not teach any coping skills or even have any information on how to quit drinking in its scripture except for the pledge to become abstinent "One Day at a Time." It is unknown how many days the AA program did work for him, but it is known that it did not work for almost 50 of them.

Let me introduce myself

There are four people with access to this account, but I'm the only one who posts with it. Danny can guess who the four are, but he'll never be 100% sure of the one. I'm not here to argue with steppers. I'm here because your resident troll is a rapist and abuser. He threatens and harasses women online now, and has tried to meet up with some of them. He is not just this idiot you people see. He is dangerous

What ever happened to court mandated Omar Martinez who is sought for shooting a pregnant woman in the head at an AA meeting Nov. 10, 2011?

It would appear that Omar Martinez,19 is still a fugitive for the shooting in the head of a pregnant woman who came to pick up her husband when a fight ensued in the Alcoholics Anonymous prayer session. Omar Martinez was a court mandated AA member who was identified because he left his court card behind during the fight to run after and shoot at the AA member he was fighting with. If you don't remember this incident, this is the one where the AA apologetic claim it actually didn't happen "inside" the meeting as a deflection tactic to explain that AA was not involved at all.

What does Religion have to do with the Cult of Alcoholics Anonymous that claims to be Spiritual, not Religious? The 12 Step Analysis

The cult of Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) claims to be Spiritual, and not Religious, YET it chants the 12 Steps before ending in a religious prayer (NOTE: some to the Religious congregations of Alcoholics Anonymous that claim they are not Religious also chant the Serenity Prayer at the beginning of the prayer ritual and sermon).
