Today’s meeting in West Hollywood was composed of about 10 old men (myself included), one old woman, and one young woman. The Big Book reading was about a middle age fighting man who kept fighting and drinking despite repeated injuries, who even drank on his hospital bed, and who finally one day fell on his knees and begged for help from his ‘disease’. And then the next day he went to AA and for whatever reason that time out of all the other times finally understood how it works. Something about god. And he never drank and fought again. Will wonders never cease. Continue reading Freedom Prayer
Pepperdine University today filed papers to “sue the ass off” AddictionMyth for “all he’s worth” for impersonating and plagiarizing Public Policy Assistant Professor Angela Hawken. Said Pepperdine President Andrew K. Benton, “That despicable troll committed the crimes of Impersonating a Revered University Official and then Plagiarizing Sacred Academic Texts when he copied her research wholesale and passed it off as her own. I mean, I believe in academic freedom. But crediting ideas to their rightful owner? That’s just outrageous!” Continue reading Pepperdine U Sues AddictionMyth’s Ass Off!

I hope to get us all on the ‘same page’ so to speak. Better late than never, right? Continue reading Angela Hawken Explains Addiction

There is no cure for addiction, but we have a program that will help you manage it: first you must turn your will to God as you understand him. Don’t worry it’s not a religious program. If you are Christian then your god can be Jesus, and if you are another religion then you may choose the god(s) of that religion. If you are not religious at all, then you may choose Science, or “Good Orderly Direction”, or even AA itself: “Group of Drunks”! Continue reading Oh My Gods
