AA has worked for thousands for over the last 75 years. The reason for this kind of success is simple. It has saved countless lives.<quoted text>
I've been proselytized at a hospital.
And AA is the worst.
My friend, the bits and pieces of your life experiences are coming together. I will not debase you for we are all members of the human race. My very own brother was a hopeless alcoholic. His wife died about 4 years ago from drug & alcohol addiction.
Mark, whom I have mentioned before was able to break free by the grace of God. His life was incredibly dysfunctional for over 20 years. Now he is dealing with the repercussions of his addiction by watching the dysfunction in his sons lives. They have not broken free.
I have my doubts a secular drug and alcohol treatment would have helped him. I dont think it would have been powerful enough to have made a difference. When I say he was hopelessly addicted, I just cant stress that enough. He has been living free and clean for over 6 years. Today he is a productive and law abiding member of our society.
