Reports, NPR, a "Critic Faults Alcoholics Anonymous For Lack Of Evidence." Plus, a recent story in the New York Times asks, "Do Alcoholics Anonymous participants do better at abstinence than nonparticipants because they are more motivated? Or is it because of something inherent in the A.A. program?" Plus AA is not commenting, as they have "no opinion on outside issues"
Plus, guest co-host Antoine Nauleau drops by to dicuss the new dating app, Sober. Explains Nauleau, "An average of 12%-14% of the population is sober, and with the emergence of “healthy lifestyles” and the rate of addiction climbing, there has been an increase in people choosing to live sober. People in sobriety tend to socialize mainly among themselves, due to the support and commonality of one another, and to avoid tempting or dangerous situations..."

DId you feel like you were in a cult when you left? Why would we say that? Did you have to make all new friends? Were you ostricized when you left? Is AA religious? Yes. Why would our courts send you there then? Is AA a government agency? NO. Is AA run by professionals? No. Does AA have safety policies in place? NO. IN fact, they voted no to making Safety polices when insider Paul C wrote his 7 page letter to the AA General Service Board.
Join us for a 1 hour show where bloggers can call in and tell their stories with host Monica Richardson.

Our guest this evening is Lance Dodes, MD, author of The Sober Truth: Debunking the Bad Science Behind 12-Step Programs and the Rehab Industry. Dr. Dodes is a Training and Supervising analyst emeritus with the Boston Psychoanalytic Society and Institute and recently retired assistant clinical professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School.
Dick B.'s son Ken talks about the new book he and his dad released this month, Pioneer Stories in Alcoholics Anonymous: God's Role in Recovery Confirmed! (December 2012). When Bill W. and Dr. Bob met in Akron, Ohio, on May 12, 1935 (Mother's Day), both were members of a group named "A First Century Christian Fellowship" (also known as the Oxford Group). Bill and Bob developed a program of recovery over the summer of 1935 which John D. Rockefeller's agent Frank Amos summarized in seven points in February 1938. (See DR. BOB and the Good Oldtimers, 131.) As Dr. Bob said in his last major talk: "In early A.A. days, . . . we were convinced that the answer to our problems was in the Good Book." (See The Co-Founders of Alcoholics Anonymous: Biograhical Sketches: Their Last Major Talks, Item # P-53, page 13.) After Bill and Bob "counted the noses" of those who had recovered as of November 1937, Bill was commissioned to write a book that would present the highly-successful, original Akron A.A. "Christian fellowship" program. (See DR. BOB and the Good Oldtimers, 123 and 118.) Bill W., however, wrote what he called "the new version of the program, now the 'Twelve Steps.'" (See Alcoholics Anonymous Comes of Age, 162.) Bill's statement at the Rockefeller Dinner on February 8, 1940, that A.A. claimed a 75% success rate among "seemingly-hopeless," "medically-incurable" alcoholics who thoroughly followed their path is mainly speaking about the original Akron program, as the Big Book had only been published April 10, 1939. When Clarence S. founded the A.A. group in Cleveland, which had a documented 93% success rate without relapse(!), he had done it with "by keeping most of the 'old program,' including the Bible and the Four Absolutes." (See Mitchell K., How It Worked, 108.) Our new book talks about success

Shocking new information ...How deep is this rabbit hole? This last spring I met with a pilot who told me his story. When we drove away I felt how depressed and sad he was that he may never fly again. Why? Beacuse he has a problem with alcohol? No. Because AA members have infiltrated every nook and cranny of our culture and world only to tell them ...do it our way..reliious AA or the highway. To tell even Nurses they have to go to AA for 5 years ...WOW...WOW.... I am outraged....How can the FAA force a Pilot to attend an AA rehab ($40,000) and see an AA psychiatrist ( for $2,500.) to regain their flying abilities? Money and AA dont mix? Bullshit!
If you or someone you know has been coereced and forced to AA dogma, has lost your job, lost wages etc we are rallying to discuss a civil class action lawsuit. Please listen and share everywhere.

Why are Nurses being coereced and extorted to AA for 5 years , forced to attend 3 days a week? How did this happen. Why and how did it get so entangled. I am shocked by what some Nurses have explained to me what is going on around the country. This is outrageous and must be stopped. If you are a lawyer and are willing to help please contact us at email@example.com and if you are a Nurse being forced to AA and NA and want to fight back please let us know so we can connect you to each other in hopes there can be a class action lawsuit.
This Tuesday, we will hear another amazing testimony of God's grace in a life that was ravaged by alcoholism. Although my guest will remain anonymous in keeping with the traditions of Alcoholics Anonymous, his story will resonate in many hearts that have been there or, are even now, shackled by the painful and rusty chains of alcoholism or other substances.
As I listened to this young man tell his story, I was incredibly moved by his honesty, his humility and his story. I found myself crying and laughing as he shared the horrible and sometimes ridiculous predicaments and situations in which he found himself. Finally he found grace and AA and has served others by reaching out and helping where he can. You will not want to miss this encouraging and uplifting story.
