I am glad you found help with your addiction. I’ve been there, I have been clean and sober for 15 years. But what I don’t like, is your cliché quotes, your insisting I read the “big book”, and come with you to meetings, because in your mind, I’m in a “dry” spell and not really in recovery. No I’m not in “recovery” because I’m not in rehab and attending meetings. I did that 15 years ago. I don’t want or need your meetings and since I’m an adult, I get to be selfish enough that I don’t want to dredge up my former addiction every day, because I don’t see that as therapeutic. I don’t see hanging out daily with a bunch of junkies (this is my view for me personally) and struggling drunks and listening to their problems and struggles, as something I want to do every day. I don’t care about the big book, the serenity prayer, and everything that comes along with it. What I am saying, is I don’t need that dogma in my life. Quit telling me it isn’t religious, last time I checked when you pray and say God, it is religious. Glad you found your higher power, but I’m sick of hearing about it. I’ve moved on in my life. I don’t need to relive my past. I remember it very clearly without a 12 step intervention, and I’m doing just fine.mif your program worked, NO ONE would relapse. I’ve seen dedicated people work their program and they failed. Bill W created concept that doesn’t work for EVERYONE, so quit saying it does fit everyone and then if they don’t like it, say they are moral failures. Get over it.
