Closed AA Meetings are closed. Open AA meetings are open. It's really very, very, simple.


I don't know why Gunthar suddenly flipped out and did a kamikaze posting. He simply used some HTML meta-tags to redirect the page to the A.A. home page. That is deleted. And he is gone. So it goes.

What is the difference between a "Closed" and "Open" meeting in Alcoholics Anonymous: P-16 The A.A. Group

There really is no difference between an "Open" and "Closed" AA meeting.

Its not the Anti AA Movement that......

Its not the Anti AA Movement or Orange Papers that screwed up my mind, it was the stepper cult. All the Anti AA Movement and Orange Papers did was to at last open my mind to the sordid truth about that off- shoot of the Oxford Group we NOT very affectionally call the stepper cult. It was not the Anti AA movement or Orange Papers that caused my great friend and sponsor Eric to become another AA suicide statistic, I believe and I know I cant prove it , but I strongly believe it was the false fear-mongering stepper cult indoctrination that made him take his own life.

The Anti AA Movement

Many times I have wondered if my posts on the OPF have made deprogramming from the stepper cult worse instead better for people. I have been accused of playing into the stepper cults hands and this was never my intention and has often caused me much agonising and thought and I have wondered should I actually relate to others my experiences and thoughts on what happened to me? Perhaps doing so may do more harm than good.

Recognition of The Source of The Problem

This whole exercise smacks of a PR exercise. I doubt much will be achieved by it, but at least it highlights one of the main sources of the addiction problem in the US:

Note - "80% of addicted persons start with a legally prescribed drug"

By Devin Kelly July 18, 2015

A young man died in a shooting at a Spenard club early Saturday morning, Anchorage police said.

Police said 18-year-old Alex Thanapong Yu was killed at about 1:20 a.m. at the Alano Club, a sober club on Spenard Road.

Steps 1-5 of the anything but AA way of life......

Step #1 of the anything but AA view of life.......

I (None of this WE nonsense) decided and declared that I am NOT powerless-that things got out of hand because I was hurting internally because something wasn't right and I now realize that dependent using is not a terribly efficient, healthy nor satisfying response to life.

Step #2 of the anything but AA view of life.......


DICTIONARY SAYS- someone who is going a different way/direction.=
everyone plays follow the leader
leader is pushed from behind-thinks they push cause they know where he is going
they follow thinking he knows where we should,could go ,but then
someone appears who is going opposite way.
people ASSUME-fucktard,fckng a***hole,fckng nuts,
yet where are they alll going and in such a hurry??
Death awaits all.In end death takes each person away.

Participation and conversion to the AA faith should be called "Cult-ditioning"

Might raise a few eyebrows if that term is used when people are sentenced to AA.

"We Were Powerless"........Say what?!!!!

Ok, for most of you guys that know me, you realize that my #1 pet peeve with all things 12 Step is that they DON’T WORK and are so counter intuitive, illogical, disempowering and are basically just downright full of shit!
So that being said, today I’m going to debunk one of the Sheeple’s top idiotic lines of defense;
That being, that whenever you point out how absolutely ludicrous, false and evil Step One is because it tells people that they are powerless, they come back with the stupid response of “Ah, but it ways we WERE powerless”…..

Where would you tell a person targeted as a "Prospect" for Alcoholics Anonymous or any 12 Step cult to go to learn how to respond, resist and get the cult fanatics out of their lives on the internet?

Are you bored?

Are you all just sitting here sucking on janus' dick still? If you are bored/tired of that, you might be able to actually help someone over here.

I have a question

Is God as we understand Him willing to prevent “Alcoholism” but just not able? then He can’t be omnipotent “The same as God” right? Or is he able to prevent “Alcoholism” but just not willing? Then he must be malevolent, “All powerful”? Or is he neither able to prevent “Alcoholism” nor willing to prevent “Alcoholism” in which case why do we call him God? Soberman

The Myth About AA and Suicide

Alcoholism, along with other mental health conditions increases the risk of suicide. As you can see from the article below, Russia has one of the highest suicide rates in the world (along with one of the worst alcohol problems):

Just for Janus....Cult characteristics, recruitment methods. etc.

I came across a fascinating article on another site titled "How cults recruit & indoctrinate their members"
Different cult but same tactics.
