Weak minded people go to AA. If you believe and trust in God you don't need AA. I was a 12 pack a day during the week and more on weekends drinker. One day I decided to quit, and quit. Not one AA meeting or people help. You can do it with God helping you. Besides, unless you are sincere about quitting and ready to quit no one or anything can help you.

A 12pack per day? No wonder it was easy for you. AA is wonderful and encouraging. Go to the meetings, you will be surprised how much it helps.

From the way I read it, I understood during the week to possibly mean after work? Which could mean a 12pk an evening every evening and then more on weekends. Which is not a small amount.

I bet you are a snake handler to. GOD expects us to use WISDOM! If A.A. will help that is great. That is why it is out there. I don't think that it is weak minded either. You sound as if you are a closed minded, uniform wearing, Bible thumping fanatic. The TYPE of person that Jesus spoke of in the Bible. You will go for miles to get someone to church and saved YET you make it so hard for them to follow Jesus. The Lord said just confess and except. He will do the rest. Don't believe in being one of the blinded sheep that Knox County is FULL of.

You are so wrong. Evidently you have a strong make-up and are able to discipline yourself, and perhaps you were not an alcoholic at all.

Alcoholism is a disease, and those suffering from it not only need medical help, but emotional help and support also. An alcoholic can sincerely want to be better, like someone with any other disease wants to get better, but they must go through a program of treatment.

Please, have a heart.

Bluenite is right, SOME people can quit without treatment or AA (but with the help of God) and remain ok for the rest of their life. However, many can't quit without a treatment program and AA. Bluenite is also right in saying "unless you are sincere about quitting and ready to quit no one or anything can help you". I've seen many people successfully complete a treatment program and then relapse afterwards. Even though they successfully completed their treatment, I don't think they were truly ready to change. In fact I've had several people tell me that was the exact reason they relapsed. However, if you never give up on someone who has relapsed and keep helping and encouraging them, many who relapse eventually gain sobriety and want to stay that way.

You should not lump all alcoholics together. There are many alcoholics who are women, and many are from good families. People who act the way you describe are many times just "drunks" and don't have alcoholic disease at all.

It sounds like you may have suffered yourself at the hands of a "drunk" who may or may not be an alcolholic, because you are very bitter and have such strong feelings. If that's the case, I'm very sorry.
