On Kosh67
Anybody who gets that enraged about a simple book probably has some serious problems and a personality disorder to address himself.
Especially when he's talking about a program that has helped millions of people for over 75 years in many countries around the world get sober and live productive lives.

It's just a book man! You probably need more meetings to experience the real program.

Ouch! I would assume that Kosh67 had a very bad experience with AA. // I am not an AA'er nor am I a"friend of Bill W". // I do know that the Alcoholics Anonymous program has helped thousands and thousands of people find sobriety. // Sure, even the highly touted Bill W had his disease bite him on the butt in his dying days, but that just goes to show what alcoholism can do. // Go check out Rational Recovery, if you wish, but don't discount AA based on an unhappy customer's rant here. // Sorry, Kosh67...

Pure, unmitigated cow dung. Nothing but religious tripe and cult sloganeering on every page ("religion" outnumbering "spirituality" by a factor of at least 9 to 1), presenting a system that actually helps to keep you addicted. In fact, Bill Wilson, the primary author of this book, begged for, and got, a bottle of whiskey on his death bed so he could go out drunk, so he couldn't even help himself, so how can anyone expect him to be able to help anyone else? I'd strongly suggest that anyone wanting to quit an addiction of any kind to not bother with this trash and instead read "Rational Recovery: The New Cure For Substance Addiction" by Jack Trimpey.
