Alcohol is apparently an addictive drug to millions of people.  When this is finally part of our kid’s education, it might cut back on the number of alcoholics we have to worry about.

I do not want another government prohibition issued by the do-gooders but can only hope we pass this information down to the next generation.

Again, if it works, and keeps people from ruining their lives, is it still evil?

[quote author=“Ellecram”]For the last 18 months I have been involved in several online groups that discuss the cult aspects and subsequent harm caused by coerced (and chosen) involvement in AA/NA or any of the 12 step model groups prevalent in addiction treatment.

The basic premise is that AA et al are religious organizations and are minimally effective support groups.

Thoughts???

Nope—I’m VERY familiar with them. They believe that spiritualism can heal their problems—their “higher power” can be anything of their choosing.
