Did anyone see the South Park on Wenesday night (7th Dec). It was about Stan's dad getting a DUI and having to attend AA meetings. It really pisses me off when a 12 step program is featured on TV. They get hung up on the God thing and make it out like AA is a religious group, which it most definitely is not. Penn and Teller did a similar program last year, and having watched it, i totally dismissed AA when my loved ones suggested AA by saying that i dont want religion in my life. Basically that was my excuse. It's a pity that the media portray this falsely, i had to hit my rock bottom, my personal hell if you like before i realised that AA was my only chance of getting sober. I wonder how many still suffering alcoholics watched that episode and resolved never to go through the doors of an AA room.
