I have already seen and responded to a post from another gal here who is having issues with AA. I am not sure what to do myself, as I would love to have an AA program, yet cannot find one that does not involve this thought process of a "higher being." I do not believe in a higher being, I am most definately an atheist and I have serious reservations about belonging to a program that ascribes your progress and your "help" from "a higher being." I think all that stuff is hocus-pocus nonsense, so I react really strongly against it. Is there any kind of program out there that doesn't prescribe to that kind of thought process? A normal, scientific, personal group session that is easily acessible and free of charge? Are they out there!?! Because, I'm not finding them!! I do not intend on offending any of you out there who do believe in God and I have nothing against people who believe in religion, but I DON'T. So,what's out there for us?

My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
