Some people really hate AA. Case in point: Laura T – whose hatred you can view in the most recent part of our comments section. Seems she was invited, but did not participate in this discussion hosted by the Huffington Post between TDA, Stanton Peele, Tom Horvath, and Clancy Martin on aspects of AA. The discussion was supposed to center around the topic of whether or not religion belongs in AA, but really only touched upon that subject – you can still view the discussion here on HuffPo and bear witness to even more deranged comments by Laura T.
I don’t think Laura realizes that TDA is not responsible for this post http://discoveringalcoholic.com/alcoholism/huff-post-hit-piece-on-alcoholics-anonymous-misses-the-mark, which may have started the whole thang; that was me – Screedler. Anyway, just wanted to set the record straight, and explain the comments you may have seen. I’m not sure why she has it out for AA, but obviously she had a bad experience with it and is on a mission to paint it in the worst light possible. I hope she doesn’t turn someone off on it that it may help. Of course, if you believe her it couldn’t possibly help anyone. You can tell by dozens of previous posts that I support AA, but by no means do I think it’s the only path to sobriety; I encourage people to give it try, but be open minded about alternative methods. Contrary to this post title, I do not really love AA… but it helped me and many others I know. Let’s just say I like it. Her stance on AA reminds me of this clip, and that’s the only comment I will make on the subject -
