An Atheists Unofficial Guide to AA
Do you want to stop drinking ?
This site, An Atheists Unofficial Guide to AA (Alcoholics 12 Steps), is for atheist and agnostic newcomers to, and followers of, the AA 12 step program who want to give up problem drinking, but who are put off by the god stuff in the Alcoholics Anonymous twelve steps. Want to know if you are alcoholic? Check out ‘What is an alcoholic?’ On the 12 Steps page you can see a secular version of the twelve steps and the Books page shows you how to buy the books. These links include Vince’s latest offer, Secular AA.
Vince Hawkins is the author
of both An Atheists Unofficial Guide to AA and Secular AA. One version is for new steppers and one for oldtimers and other members keen to construct their own individual programs.
Vince attends AA and is hopeful that when other problem drinkers eventually hit their rock bottoms and become desperate they will find help, too.
There is plenty of it out there, but the trick is in finding the right program to suit the alcoholic. It should take into account the individual’s beliefs and value system. Does a rehab center or program have a religious twist or are its meetings all-embracing?
Another nonfiction addiction book by Vince is a self-improvement book for addicts of any kind or bad behavors – An Atheists 12 Steps to Self-improvement (To accompany any program).
Then there is his blue book Everyone’s an Addict, a daily reader which is much more than just 366 daily inspirational entries; it gives detailed practical tips on how to tackle addictions from a secular viewpoint. It complements any/each of the three handbooks. He has also branched out with a fiction novel – Trader Bob.
Are you a hung over alcoholic who needs help but are non-religious?
