We ALL now know Smart does NOT allow criticism of the stepper cult, but does it allow any praise of this cult at its meetings?

Yes, particullally if the Smart facilitator and most of the meeting members ARE steppers

Greetings on our Tenth Christmas ~from Bill

I typed out just a few lines from this little gem; a letter from Bill Wilson to "All All Members".

There isn't anything written about alcoholism recovery or sobriety, like in the steps (or spoken of at meetings) for that matter. The religious overtones are overwhelmingly present, as usual for AA and Billy.

Clarification on AA’s benignity

An exacting critique on the AA religious movement and its damaging practices in the indoctrination of the newcomer. http://academicmisconceptionsofaainoz.weebly.com/ The essay left me with the impression that this religious movement like it forerunner the Oxford Group is very adept at preying upon the weak and damaged individuals to gain new coverts to its cause who in turn are taught to carry its message to others and so on.

Ridiculous Sheeple Logic

So as is my way, I was debating certain points of the AA nonsense with someone who tried to deny my point that AA has no exit plan and it's premise necessitates recovering for life as it's best case outcome. He made a point of saying that the "Big Book" uses the word "recovered" in several places....So what?

More traction in mainstream media.

Good Morning Americal calls out AA broken logic on eating garbage.

I can not find it online, but just saw it on tv a segment called 'second addictions', they call out the broken logic in AA literature which encourages eating garbage food to 'curb impulse'.

Maybe Jr can find it online and post it here.

And finally, the Emma Honorable Mentions

My brother and me: what Alcoholics did to our lives and families

My brother was a good person and a good parent, and so was I. After seeing PA/PAS destroy his life, the same thing happened to me. The only actual difference was the “alienator” in his life was his ex-wife, while my experiences occurred from an individual who simply walked into my life and took over. I watched his relationship with his daughter go from good to nonexistent to horrible, and then the same happened with mine. Kids of any age can be vulnerable to PA tactics, and solid family relationships can be destroyed.
