Asking does Alcoholics Anonymous work is like asking does a specific diet work with everyone, or does everyone like carrots. The answer is no.
Will AA Work For You?
Will Alcoholics Anonymous work for you? Who knows! You are probably the best judge of that.
Would it work for me? I don’t think so. I can’t be certain. But going on my past experience I would have to say no. I’m not really good at sticking to group things, classes, courses, etc. As soon as I hear religion, or anything that smacks of religion or God, it’s a big turn off for me.
There’s a lot of statistics to back up the AA method and there’s probably an equal amount that refutes it. I say if it helps one person then it’s doing some good.
How To Find Out If You’ll Get Something Out Of the Twelve Step Program!
How do you find out if it’s going to help you? Go to a session! If you have a lot of life experience and you know what is going to work for you and what isn’t, like I do, then you will more than likely know if this type of thing is going to work or not. There’s no point in getting into a quandary over it. Make the decision to do it or not to do it. Go to a meeting or move on to something else. If you have doubts or you can’t make the choice you might as well try it out and see if it’s any good for you. Action is much better that indecision. Indecision will overwhelm you and lead you nowhere.
Until next time…
