The Irrationality of Alcoholics Anonymous - The Atlantic - Alcoholics Anonymous was established in 1935, when knowledge of the brain was in its infancy. It offers a single path to recovery: lifelong abstinence from alcohol. The program instructs members to surrender their ego, accept that they are “powerless” over booze, make amends to those they’ve wronged, and pray.

The 12-steps are not a 1 time exercise, they are to become a lifestyle which transforms your life into one which is filled with TRUE happiness, peace, and joy!
