To tell someone that if they don't have God they cannot recover is terrible and limiting and deterring to those that dont believe. Reading things like this pushes me further away from God and religion.
I don't know if I can try to enjoy this book because I'm so pissed off about the attitude of exclusion when I thought we should be opening up recovery to everyone.
