    I stopped drinking on Valentine's Day 1988, because my boyfriend stood me up for a Valentine's date because he was so smashed he passed out at his house. During the next 7 years together (6 of which we lived together) he still drank and got DUIs. When we broke up he spent time in jail for DUI hit and run. He called me up on July 4, 1999, to make amends - probably a court-ordered AA group. I told him to never contact me again, and he never has. Thank My Higher Power. It is amazing how alcoholics affect so many people around them.

    Well said, Gaypalm. So tell these douches there's little point to get down on people who are trying to get better.

    agreed. my father drinks and drives like it's his fucking job. can't tell you guys how many phone calls i've had from him at two in the morning telling me he's a failure and he's going to kill himself, quickly followed by a cop jumping on the phone saying, 'your dad will be in (insert city jail here).

    He just got popped for his third DUI.

    i plan on doing all of those things but shitting on someone for realizing a fault and trying to correct it is pretty much the definition of being a total fuckwad.

    Q: Do AA people feel tempted to get fucked up at Coachella and so they need a meeting to "stay strong?"
    A: It's different for everyone. My first attempt at sobriety (2005) I stayed home from Coachella because I had way too much fun being drunk and high at Coachella 2004, and thought I should say away. Since I relapsed and got sober again in '05 (which probably had nothing to do with Coachella and a whole lot to do with the fact that I wasn't "done" yet), i've come to Coachella every year and have not felt the urge to get fucked up. I don't need to "stay strong," because the 12 steps kind of rearranged my thought process a little bit so I don't have the urge to be self destructive anymore. It's pretty great, actually.

    Q: Are the 12 steps some brainwashy shit?
    A: Well, kind of. But in the best way possible. Basically they just teach you to 1) stop trying to control your sobriety, because your best thinking gets you drunk over and over again, historically speaking 2) admit your faults to yourself and someone you trust who's neutral and helpful 3) keep trying to grow spiritually, whatever form that takes for you 4) go help other people out as much as possible.
    Doesn't sound too illuminati, does it? My brain needed that kind of washing.

    Q: So you're all into God and Jesus or Buddha or whatever?
    A: Not all of us, not by any means. I'm actually pretty staunchly agnostic. But I pray a lot, just like scientists do a lot of tests about things that they know nothing about. It's free and it makes me feel good.

    Q: Does AA just shame you into feeling bad about yourself, forcing you to "surrender" and admit that you are weak?
    A: When I was drinking I was about as shameful as possible. Since I got sober I've grown tons of self respect and dignity. You do the math. Admitting that there are some things I'm good at and some things I'm not so good at? To me that just feels like growing up and getting a little wiser.

    Q: So AA people just drink a lot of coffee and smoke cigarettes and bitch about things?
    A: Some do. I don't really hang out with those people. I quit smoking in 07. I drink one cup of coffee a day. I stopped fucking with the energy drinks a long time ago. And bitching about stuff makes me feel kinda gross so I try to avoid it as much as possible.

    Q: Do people have to do AA if they want to get sober?
    A: No. Not at all. In fact, it's definitely not for everyone.

    Q: Do AAs dislike/judge/avoid/talk shit on people who get drunk and high?
    A: I would hope not. Not only would that be hypocritical as fuck, but personally I find my loadie friends to be pretty fun. And I'm glad that AA has put my in a position of neutrality with respect to drugs/drinking so I can enjoy them and laugh at their bullshit without feeling like I have to go out, imitate them, but then take partying way too far to the extent that I fuck up my life.

    TL;DR version: omg we love you, we don't care if you get high, we're not doing this offend anyone, live and let live. If you feel like you have to say something obnoxious in this thread to get a laugh / increase your post count / be wacky, then...okay. Rock on. If you just have a bad opinion of AA, that's cool too. I think everyone should be given the dignity of having their own opinions.

    Yep. Let's criticise those who seek help and support for their shortcomings.

    F'real

    The 'dont put yourself in that position' argument only works if the person you're presenting it to relapsed and is blaming someone other than themselves.

    I think your point was pretty valid. Most addicts I know don't go into grocery stores. Or even have a bank account. Why put themselves in a situation where they might cave to temptation?

    I think a music festival where everyone is doing drugs and drinking is a little different than a grocery store.
