I have been exposed to this group over the years, and they have done nothing for me or for any of my real friends other than brainwash them, and turn them into mindless parrots, who turn on anyone who is not clean. I can't stand the hypocrisy or the double standards that they live by. They use the word God allot, but they definatlely are far from any God I would ever want anything to do with. As far as I am concerned they reject God and reject anything that is not self serving. I believe that they believe, but that is where the buck stops.
There is a bunch of reverse psychology that is involved in this cult, where they will use anything you say against you in order to continue believing whatever it is that works for them. I attend these meetings, hoping to help wake people up to the truth...that A.A. is the biggest cult in America, and worldwide. [continued below]....
..... They are so selfish to say the least. They live whatever kind of lifestyle they want to, and then when they stop living that lifestyle, they expect the entire world to adopt their twisted belief system. It's just sad when the church also adopts this garbage and allows these people to dominate our society. Basically I see them as a Communist regime, not a free society like they want to be. They are cannibalistic, meaning they say one thing and do another. Maybe they don't drink or do drugs anymore, but as far as pride goes, I have never met a more pride filled group of people in my entire life. The courts are forcing people to go or they will give people prison time.
Basically it's a religion that is being forced into society, and even though it may help some, it has destroyed my faith in allot of things, especially the ability to think freely and live my life as I choose to. I am not even an Alcoholic. I am not saying that everyone in this cult is dangerous, but the majority is. Someday the world will wake up to this Communist and Fascist regime. It's just sad that some many people have been "programmed" to the point that they forget where they come from, and they turn on people who have figured them out for who they really are. Liars, fakes, frauds, hypocrites, and cannibals , LOL, it's just really sad. I will continue however to attend their meetings, and I will continue to speak up for the truth, as I see it, which I believe there are allot of people who feel the same way as I do.
