I'd think more atheists who've struggled with addiction and found a way out would reach back and help out.
The religious 12-steppers have us beat there. Is it just because there's more of them than us? Do they care more?
I'm tired of being the only non-prayer at meetings. Where's the addict who's sober and not doing meetings? And where the f- are they? Instead of ranting on some Internet board about how f-ed up AA is maybe they could write a goddamn book and share the cure.
--- Just came from Dawkin's site, which I love reading, and stupidly took a moment to scroll through the silly AA thread. I'd have been better off f-ing praying for serenity. To think that being addicted to AA meetings is worse than drugs. Puleeze. But the person who said that her family members had lost a lot of time in meetings - now that I'd like to know more about. Did they quit? Are they sober? What do they think about their 12-step experience now.
