Wow great read!

You echo many of my concerns about the whole field of "recovery" I know many AA's who work in recovery and it does irk me a bit.

The whole my way or the highway attitude in some steppers is a real put off.

However, I do think AA has a place and a big place in recovery. AA is after all a 'fellowship" not a treatment facility. AA has firm roots in religion which may be a turn off for many but a huge bonus for others.

Take what you need and leave the rest is a slogan that one can take. I am sober over 22 years and know many others who owe a great debt to AA so I will never put it down however AA should take it's knocks where it fits.
