Are you arguing that addiction is a brain disease? Or do you just not like the tone and methodology that is used?
What works for me: 1) Honesty 2) Meetings 3) 12-step 4) Listening to my Sponsor 5) Not doing what I want to do 6) Inviting the God of my understanding into my life

That's good. If things were perfect, you'd have no more use in this world

Day 45

I have b"h reached 45 days of sobriety with the help of Hashem.

I would have been in the same place I have been for the past two years - falling every 2 3 days - if not for the reaching out of one of the veteran members on this site, who made me call him, and then connected me to another veteran member of this site who has been god sent to me at this moment. I am forever grateful to them, and hope to one day be an exemplar of their selflessness, to be able to share my sobriety with others.
