Question by Veronica Katherine: Do addicts in recovery use support groups as their drug of choice?
So could members of AA who are ‘sober’ get hooked on the group instead of the alcohol, so something is still controlling them – is it about control rather than addiction? Is it too scary to have to take responsability alone? So alcohol and its reliance on it is replaced by a reliance on the group, a sponsor, or the great higher power itself? Can it be replacement rather than recovery? Isn’t it better to take full responsiblity and not rely on anything but ourselves, is that the only true way to recovery? to be free from it ALL and just be ourselves, uncontrolled by any other substance, person, or make believe fairy who will take it all on their shoulders so we don’t have to????

Sounds like you’re in denial. Most drug and alcohol treatment centers preach 12 step fellowships because they work today and have worked for many years. It’s impossible to get sober on your own. Human beings are born needing at least one other person to survive.
