Victoria says...I have attended a 12 step fellowship for 28+ years. I do not believe in God from a book or any religious organization. God as I understand is a positive energy flow that is creative by/in nature. Addiction is a negative energy flow that is destructive by/in nature. The 12 step groups are not closed to outside influences and membership is totally voluntary therefore it is not a cult. You do not get hunted down or punished if you leave. Love is sent to you that you do recover. I have known the 12 step fellowships to have saved hundreds of lives... Other forms of recovery tend to be subsidized by BIG PHARMA... to keep you trapped in a drug to live.... sad...
Why do you hate 12 step recovery?
