      No idea but he was a raging alcoholic and pill popper apparently. He’ll never be cured, he says. The AA are bad people.

          How d’you mean? I mean, I know that one reading of what AA does is that they replace in people the dependency on booze with a dependency on, er, AA, but there *is* something in the fact that if you’re of the personality traits of an alcoholic, then you’ll forever be one, just maybe of the non-practising variety.

          I’m not saying that there aren’t former heavy drinkers who’ve managed to calm down, as opposed stop dead, but I think they’re in the minority, no?

            Listen the AA are great people. One time i crashed my car, I was drunk, and they sent a guy straight out who got my car working again. Good times.

            I think the first “Step” is to admit you have no will power and give yourself to God. They are preying on the weak. Many addicts are naturally inclined that way, sure, but a bunch of Jesus freaks are not qualified to make that decision. It is possible to beat addiction.

            ‘God’ in AA is whatever the hell you want it to be. God under AA is just a word to encapsulate what you yourself believe to be your ‘higher power’ which could be anything from the support of your Mum or Dad or any family member or a tree in your garden you’ve loved since a kid, it can be anything.

            If you enter AA, they will inform you of that, if they don’t and you’re not religious, just leave and find another meeting. There are literally thousands of meetings per month in Dublin.

            If you enter a rehab centre, make sure it is not of the ‘Jesus freak’ variety if you want proper help. Top two are Hope House in Mayo, and The Rutland in Dublin. No jesus freaks in there, unless you are that way inclined yourself.
