Anonymous November 22, at Thank you for reading! My sponsor told me to talk to people, put myself out there because I'm so introverted - which he thought was BS because he told me introverts are basically hermits and hermits don't do well in AA All right Anonymous, and yes, Freder. I hate going to meetings because even if some of these people have been sober for years, the ones with long term sobriety are some of the most self involved, self serving, selfish people there are. That stuff I get with a therapist.
I used to go to a men's meeting where everyone talked about what they scored on the golf course that day. Better yet, maybe he will drop dead. Detox, ER, rehab and about 1, AA meetings. Certainly many if not most of the non-alcoholics who routinely point to AA as the answer would never normally support such a cultlike organization. You better have a strategy in place because it is hard to wing a proper reaction to an asshole on the fly. Fuck you Assholes Anonymous! Frankly, I'm not sure it was ever super healthy.
AA - Assholes Anonymous
My problem is that I have been depressed for years. Their some of the worst people. I remember arriving late and having to sit with what I call "Paper People", those who are court-ordered or attending a program Guess what? You can forgive someone without even making contact with the person. AA has made me utterly confused, and lose hope..
She was smart and very sucessful. I hate Alcoholics Anonymous. That is, what they perceive the program to be for themselves. Others have to find their own solutions and it is NOT easy.
