I have one week of sobriety. I am glad that I found this group. I went to an AA meeting and hated it because of the talk of a higher power. Being brand new at sobriety I could use any support and friendship that I can find.
A while back, a group of Canadian atheists tried to set up a god-free (higher-power-free) AA meeting,but were disallowed, or disaffiliated by the "main stream" organization.
Welcome, AA tends to be that way more than NA, but it is pretty heavy in both. There is a number of people like us, you will see this more often the longer you stick around. Most keep it to themselves. If there is anything you may need help with, I am here, and will do my best to relay my experience thus far in a program, that most people believe is "god-centered", when that is very far from the truth of why this works. I have an alternate version of the steps if you are interested. You may contact me through my email-Hornedgod19145@yahoo.com, if you want to talk directly.
Please reach out, the help is out here.
There is a chaper in the 6th edition of the NA basic text that is called :"Atheists do Recover". You may want to look into it. you can got to NA.org and find it im sure.
We are here, those of us who have no god, and yes, we do recover. Anything you would like to know about how to apply the program with out the use of a god, please ask, I will give you my experience thus far.
