Theft, Pearl Road: On Nov. 29, a woman called to say her ex-drug dealer appeared at her AA meeting. The man forced her into his car and stole her money.

Apparently the guy was collecting old debts. Police are investigating.

Hey Orange, can we have a moderator yet?

All we got at present is Janus's sh*t show, I'm over it, finding new & creative ways, daily to tell her to get Fk'd is wasted on someone so brain dead. If it's not her, it's some other troll.

Where does the term "Alcoholics Anonymous Classes" come from and who started it?

Normally when you hear about "Alcoholics Anonymous Classes" it relates to a judge or magistrate ordering someone before them to go to a certain number of AA meetings or they will be sanctioned by loss of liberty, licenses or both. The prospect hunting bible of Alcoholics Anonymous commonly called "The Big Book" does not mention classes. Where did the term come from and why has the misconception been propagated in the press?

Should Antidepressants Be Banned?

Here is an article about the latest findings regarding the role antidepressants play in causing suicide:

Why is AA Affiliating With the Courts? We have all heard it before, MY AA Group doesn't sign court cards, yet they advertize that they go to Jails, Prisons and Court Systems looking for AA Prospects.

TheFix has picked up on Court mandated (coerced) AA prospects and AA Zealots are claiming that their groups handle things differently(https://www.thefix.com/ask-expert-why-aa-affiliating-courts). The only thing is the "literature" from the Alcoholics Anonymous Interchurch Center on 475 Riverside Drive, NYC directs them how to hunt for canned prospects and how to coerce courts on how to send them an ample supply of new AA recruits constantly.

Just Saying Yes to the Politics of Drugs

The New York Times has an interesting article about the political candidates' new willingness to talk about drugs and alcohol:

East Enders

I was listening to the BBC News channel this morning and apparently British Soaps pride themselves on dealing with taboo or difficult subjects. Postpartum Psychosis was quoted and has been dealt with recently by the soap East Enders.

David Bowie and Abstinence

Here is an interview from 1999. It is about 16 minutes long, but if you move forward to 4.55 minutes into the interview you can hear him give his opinions about the importance of abstinence. It is pretty hard to watch this and still conclude that Bowie didn't consider himself to be an alcoholic or that he wasn't, at that stage a least, a member of a 12 Step Program: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FiK7s_0tGsg

Hello Muddah, Hello Faddah

Hello Muddah, Hello Faddah
Here I am at Camp Orange Granada
OPF is very entertaining
And they say we’ll have some fun if they stop complaining

I went blogging with Mindless Nirvana
He developed a great persona
You remember Gunt2K
He went all kamikaze on us one day

All the Orangies hate the Steppers
And the OPF has nothing but whiners
And the head Fuhrer is obsessed with Nazis
So he reads to us from his Papers

How many of the OPF Orangies are clean and/or sober?

Games Alcoholics Play by Eric Berne M. D.

The Game Alcoholic Play By Eric Berne . Page 1 ALL games have an important and probably decisive influence on the destinies of the players under ordinary social conditions; but some offer more opportunities than others for lifelong careers and are more likely to involve relatively innocent bystanders. This group may be conveniently called Life Games. It includes "Alcoholic," "Debtor," "Kick Me," "Now I've Got You, You Son of a Bitch," "See What You Made Me Do" and their principal variants. T hey merge• on the one side with marital games, and on the other with those of the underworld.

What about sexual predation, screwed up minds, control freaks and the high incidence of suicide, has anyone heard of that on a TV program about AA?

Yes, TV programs promoting AA are always full of the true facts about the 12 step program
