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.
