I Realize that we of AA come across as it being the only way to sobriety. I, for one, wish to extend my apologies. As an active member of AA and one who works in the field I commend those who have found an alternative to AA recovery. HOWEVER... I would also like for those who don't "get it" to understand the true premise behind AA. 1... Just because one stops drinking it doesn't mean they are sober and 2... the one most understood... AA is NOT about sobriety nor of changinging ones life... it's about being there when the next lost soul enters the room and the offering of hope is there for them to grab on to (Step 12). Even the word GOD can be what you need it to be. For some it's Father, others Good Orderly Direction, for most in AA it means OTHERS... I am here for you... anyone... because those in AA said to me "we are here when you need us" I am here... When you need me.
