The 12 Step Cult Religion Punishes For Relapse

As you loyal and enlightened readers know, there has been a great surge in views on my blog in the last couple of days.  While the stats are flying through the roof, I have had to deactivate my Facebook account to fend off all the abuse and threats from brainwashed steppers.  They truly are sicker than sick.

Of all the comments that have come in recently, the one below is one you will not want to miss.  While this dangerous cult claims that relapse is part of the process, when it happens, they then punish the member for relapsing.  They provide nothing but a diabolical self-fulfilling prophesy smothered in fear of “selfishness,” and when a member is at their most vulnerable, they punish and abandon them in their greatest time of need.

Mr. Scott Wasserman is in need.  Rather than let his comment and my response stay as they are, it is my intent to help Scott by asking you to take a moment to rally around him.  We can do the opposite of what his “fellowship” is doing, by writing him a quick note of support, or a tweet/retweet of this post, or a pingback, or a share on Facebook or whatever strikes your fancy.   We can simply help, rather than vilify and punish.

Below is his comment and my response followed by the link to their location for you to add to the discussion.  The best way for us to beat this cult is to support when they abandon.  Thank you in advance for any assistance.

Original Comment:

“Although I will not down AA as it has taught me a lot about myself, I agree with many of the statements made. I recently relapsed my own sobriety after 8.5 years. I held certain offices within AA that you’re immediately stripped of due to a relapse. This ties into the feeling of self-esteem that this article speaks of. It really rockets your self-esteem to another dimension when the time you accrued goes back to one day.

As a business owner from before I got sober originally, I’ve always had an underlying belief that in AA we are treated like children if we mess up. Crushing the ego is (according to AA) the only way out. Although I don’t believe one has to be an egomaniac to succeed in business, a little bit helps.

I do believe in a power greater than myself. That said, I don’t feel it controls my life as others do. If anything, it may have hurt me at times. I do now consider myself spiritual but question the dynamics and mixed messages behind it.

I do now believe in taking responsibility for my actions as any upstanding citizen should. I also feel that helping others should be a part of my life. I DON’T believe that we should shame people for not doing “the work” the way it was laid out if they relapse.

I was one of those people. Now that I relapsed, knowing I’ve done the work I’m starting to wake up to the fact that there are other ways to remain sober.

This book was written in 1939. At the time, and to a point today it has helped thousands of people.

I also feel it has hurt many people and should be kept in the list as an option for sobriety.”

My response:

“Hi Scott! Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. This is just about the saddest comment I have seen, and there has been plenty sadness from which to choose. Those people who have played the role of your AA fellowship family have abandoned you in your time of great need. That much is clear.

You are in shock from the looks and feel of it. They claim that “relapse is part of the process” and then punish and neglect and shame you for being part of that process. You learned a lot in spite of the 12 step cult but you were forced to believe that you would not have learned anything without it. They strip you of your power so that you will give it all to the programme. Then, when you struggle, they throw you out like trash. It’s the ultimate bait and switch gas-lighting abusive cult religion.

You are not a person with a big ego that needs to be “smashed!” That never applied to you, not for one single second. You gave almost 9 years of your life to this cult and what did you get for it when you really needed their help? Shame. Rejection. Abandonment.

You see, there is no actual help available in the 12 step cult other than hanging out with people who supposedly know you because they are just like you. Truth is, most of these people are avoiding taking responsibility for their lives and their “powerlessness” is the great excuse for never pursuing their dreams. That’s not you. They allowed you to become a delegate, work for them for free, travel on your own dime, cart around “AA Approved” literature in your car, buy bad cookies, make bad coffee, sweep up cigarette butts… all under the lies of defeating your “personality shortcomings,” “ego,” and “character defects.” All of which now define who and what you are every day for the rest of your life. This is the opposite of genuine help. Again, that’s not you.

It’s been proven over and over in actual studies that the all-or-nothing of the 12 step cult PROMOTES relapse and subsequent bingeing. It’s the great self-fulfilling prophesy of “Well, I’ve lost all my time, I might as well just go for it now!” There is nothing helpful about being stripped of all your power only to be told you are nothing without the AA god and meetings for the rest of your life. The subterfuge is then couched in “suggestions” which are really mandates lest you end up in three, and ONLY three, places: Jail, and Institution, or Dead. Come on!

There was never a time when the book was helpful to anyone. Bill & Bob plagiarized the steps from the fundamental cult religion then known as the Oxford Group, changed to Moral Re-armament and is today known as Initiatives of Change. Now matter what they call it, it is a disempowering set of rules based on fear of “selfishness” and moral defects. It is outright religious indoctrination disguised as a “spiritual awakening.” It’s a “fake it till you make it” world where there is no “making it.” It’s all based on keeping you in fear so that you never leave and keep recruiting others to the fold. It’s the most brilliant cult of all time.

The confusion and sadness you are now experiencing is what happens from being deceived for a very long time. You don’t have to “down AA” to know that what you are feeling is a great sense of loss. They pretend to be your support group but when you need support the most, they shame and vilify you after you did all the “work.” Do not let anyone tell you that you have to start all over again!

If you enjoy the group setting and abstinence is your goal, you’d be far better off attending SMART meetings either in person or online. SMART trains their facilitators and conducts background checks on them. SMART also was developed by an actual psychologist on the evidence-based help available from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). SMART EMPOWERS members and encourages them to move on with their lives. The 12 step cult religion shackles members to a life time of thought-control faith-healing meetings disguised as help.

The 12 step cult religion should come with WARNINGS. That most people do not know what you have just discovered is proof of the cultural brainwashing. Mostly, I am deeply sorry for your loss. They have let you down in a most profound way. You deserve far better treatment than this.

Here is a link to SMART Recovery:http://www.smartrecovery.org

Also, please know that you are in great company. The vast majority of people run from the 12 step cult within the first three months of exposure. That you stayed and tried so hard is evidence of your trusting nature and the love in your heart. Those who stay long in the 12 step cult are not deserving of such trust and love… and for that monumental loss, you can grieve now. Eventually, you will find your power, (it’s been there all along) and you will find a path that works far better.

Thank you again for trusting this forum with your newfound truths.”

Alcoholics Anonymous Destroys Self-Esteem and Self-Sufficiency

This article has ever 1800 views just today. There are a lot of hurt stepper babies on Facebook behaving abusively at the truth. Please share everywhere.

12 Step Cult Religion Exposed

robin-williams-aa-meeting-pp1I have discovered that this program called Alcoholics Anonymous is dangerous in ways that may be difficult to understand.  Most people, in general, need to find self-love and empowerment.  Most people do not need to be beaten down and stripped of their power.  AA steals your soul and any chance you may have at fulfilling your dreams.  The indoctrination is so powerful that even brilliance is not recognized by the brilliant due to the abuse they suffered after spending time in AA.

I have been given permission to reveal the author and to post the following re-write of the 12 steps. If you have ever spent any time in the rooms you will recognize this chanting at the beginning of every meeting — but what follows is truth and not disempowering, dangerous, brainwashing dogma.  It is brilliance.

Jamie Lee Curtis, a 12 Step Cult Guru “Old-Timer,” Calls The Trump Kettle Sexist. That’s One Pot of Rich Contradictions!

imageJamie Loser CultPusher is outraged where she should be called out on her extreme hypocrisy. I have personally seen Jamie at many a 12 step cult meeting with her fawning posse of “sponsees.”  My comment on a blog about Curtis’ recent outrage on the HuffPost (see link below), will likely be deleted once Curtis and her entourage read it.

Therefore, I am documenting it here.

Enjoy!  And please share everywhere.

“Not a trump fan and Curtis is right of course, but she’s merely using this fake outrage to spread the word of her cult and for personal attention-seeking. Sponsor Curtis is COMPLICIT in our cultural SEXISM in many ways. Curtis is one big, sick, cult guru full of her own “time.”

As a card carrying “old-timer” in the dangerous, sexist, predator-filled rooms of her 12 step cult religion, she sure does pick and choose where and when to be offended when it comes to women’s rights. The 12 step cult religion actively recruits sex offenders convicted of felony offenses to the cult. (They then defend them when they invariably prey on vulnerable “newcomers” by telling the newcomer to “find their part” in the sexual predation). The literature of their bible “big book” is filled with extreme sexist language and excuses from the white men who plagiarized their “steps” from the fundamental Christian cult known as the Oxford group. Not only that but in their 4th step, they blame others for calling them out on their mistresses in marriage and for being less than productive at work due to their “disease.” It’s IN the literature in the examples of how to do the steps… see for yourself!

Mix that with Curtis’ past roles as sex kittens, and prostitutes, dancing around in leotards on screen and you’ve got one deceptive, brainwashed, ‘sponsor’ who has no business being offended as she pushes people to be “powerless” for life and to “find your part” in sexual assaults. She’s only indignate about what was said regarding Lohan because she’s extremely brainwashed into the ‘character defects’ lies of her beloved cult… and actually believes that if Lohan would “turn her will and life over to god” all would be well in the universe.

Listening to Curtis is no better than listening to trump. In fact, it’s worse with her ranks among the 12 step true believers who seek her help with the faith healing disguised as help. Go sell crazy, attention-seeking, indignity elsewhere Jamie… you are HARMING people everyday. Fix your own cognitive dissonance before you pretend to be offended. No one needs your kind of “help.”  No one wants “what you have.”  (Not to mention this radio show was recorded over 10 years ago.  You’re a phony Jamie Lee Curtis.)

That’s what this is really all about.  You don’t give a rats ass about Lohan, you are only trying to spread your cult message, one fake outrage at a time.

Last but certainly important, Jamie  Loser CultPusher defended Schwartzenegger when all those young women came forward accusing him of sexual assaults.  JLC is the ultimate bait and switch manipulator, just as she’s been brainwashed to be.

Remembering September 11, 2001 – The Jumpers

Hello Readers!  I sincerely hope this finds you well.

As we age, we grow as human beings (if we’re doing it right). Life is a process of experiencing joy and tragedy and optimally, learning from it all. The important thing is to treat one another, and most importantly ourselves, with kindness and understanding and love. (Excepting, of course, abusive brainwashed steppers, they can suck my ass 😜).  We never know when we will take our last breath and move on to the ultimate adventure beyond this existence, leaving our known world, and our loved ones grieving.

In that vein, please enjoy the link provided about the American souls who chose to jump, fall, and free themselves from their inevitable demise. I shared it with you as a reminder that even in the most horrific of tragedies, we do have the right to choose. While we do not know for sure what we would have done in the same circumstances, I for one, am positive I would have phoned my husband, said my goodbyes, and jumped… Choosing to fly free rather than suffer smoke inhalation, burn, or be smashed.  (Also please note how the stories of these jumpers, as they are remembered in lieu of the impossible task of identification,  have been systematically purged from our media, thereby threatening our free press.)

If we are going to adequately honor those who suffered most through this global tragedy, we must also honor those who made the choice to Jump.  A brave choice indeed.

This morning, I have seen many on social media protest the right to remember 9/11 what with all that followed in Iraq.  While I agree that the USA started an unjustified war (the plan all along), I do not agree that today is the day to stage that protest. Of course, freedom of speech is more important that my personal sensibilities and that applies for all.  All men being created equal.

Our government (and especially George W Bush and his ‘Cheney’ administration) is complicit in 9/11 before, during, and after. But that doesn’t change that 3000 innocent American souls lost their right to exist on this day 15 years ago. The suffering their families perpetually endure is worthy of honor. This includes the 10,000+ Iraqi souls who lost their lives as pawns in the propaganda aftermath.

We are all pawns in this big chess game of war mongering for profit and we need to stand up and fight back.

But today, we honor those who just went to work, got on an airplane, responded heroically, and never came home. Today is NOT the day for protest, but for love.

Today, I stand for love.  And peace.  I implore you to do the same.  I also hope you and your loved ones take a few moments to show each other the compassion and love you feel for one another today.  For tomorrow, we may need to make the choice to jump.

See link below for a fascinating look at the jumpers and the photographers who captured them, of September 11, 2001 in New York City, USA.

Stop the Federal Government from Banning Kratom!

You care about the rights of all people.  You care and you want to do something about the injustices of the war on drugs.

You know that the BILLShit spewed by the 12 Step Cult Religion claiming there is no science or medical help for those with substance use issues, is nothing but dangerous, self-serving, dogma.

You know that marijuana should NOT be labelled a Schedule I Substance since it clearly does have medical use and no potential for abuse.  The same holds true for Kratom.

Kratom not only helps with opiate issues, it also treats chronic pain, combats depression and relieves anxiety, for a start.

You want to do more.

This is doing more.  It will take you all of 2 minutes to sign this petition and verify your signature via email.

I thank you in advance for your time and assistance.

This has been a public service announcement from those who fight for TRUTH regarding the dangerous CULT RELIGION commonly known as the 12 STEPS.

How Religious Organizations, Like A.A., Prey On Your Sense of Self-Worth

Hello Readers!   This is a quick share of a great article.

Have you ever experienced the predatory actions and behaviors from brainwashed disciples of the 12 step cult religion?  I bet you have.

The blatant physical and mental abuse is the very foundation of this dangerous cult religion.  This article, linked below, perfectly describes the not so blatant predation.

The predatory behavior disguised as the steps is the worst of all, since it is the subterfuge of the all-or-nothing disguised as spiritual not religious that causes lifelong problems with self-esteem and self-sufficiency.

If you leave the fold, you are abandoned, ostracized, and bullied.  Even worse, you are forever blamed for anything that does not go well in your life, with your only solution presented as coming back with your tail between your legs.  Do not buy it for a nanosecond!

Under the lie of this so-called self help group, where you can supposedly leave whenever you want and take or leave the suggestions, vulnerable people find themselves worse, never better.

No matter how steppers balk and lie to themselves and others, they are harming other people with their daily reprieve BILLShit.  No amount of chanting changes this truth.  The end motherfuckers.

This article is about Christians in particular and thankfully he includes all religious groups.  Lest we brush over the most mind-fuck cult religion of all time, I include the despicable 12 step cult religion in the group of harmful religious organizations …


Please read and share everywhere.



“Rarely have we seen a person fail …” What’s Wrong With A.A.’S Literature “How It Works”

At the beginning of every mind-fuck 12 step cult meeting, a passage from their big book of lies is read aloud by one member (who incidentally has usually been forced to read it).  The “How It Works” passage reads,

“Rarely have we seen a person fail who has thoroughly followed our path. Those who do not recover are people who cannot or will not completely give themselves to this simple program, usually men and women who are constitutionally incapable of be­ing honest with themselves. There are such unfortunates. They are not at fault; they seem to have been born that way. They are naturally incapable of grasping and developing a manner of living which demands rigorous honesty. Their chances are less than average. There are those, too, who suffer from grave emotional and mental disorders, but many of them do recover if they have the capacity to be honest.”

Rarely Have We SeenSeriously?!  Could this possibly be more of a cognitive dissonance inducing pile of shit?  No.  First of all, most people DO fail at their so-called simple programme.  The statistics are overwhelmingly clear on this.  That’s because if “it” doesn’t work, YOU are to blame, never their perfect programme.

The AA cult religion is nothing but a dangerous set-up for failure for the vast majority who reject faith healing disguised as medicine.  The rest of this passage is a big subterfuge of pseudo honesty all wrapped up in a you’re-a-piece-of-shit sandwich.  Don’t fall for it for a second!

I recently had a conversation with a Marriage and Family Therapist who claimed that she did indeed give clients a choice.  “They are free to go out and test their ability to drink.”  It was all I could do to not reach through the phone and shake the baby!

Telling someone that their choice is to either join your programme, or go out and attempt suicide is NO CHOICE AT ALL.  That is most certainly what this choice is placing on someone.  in other words, “you can keep trying to be a normal drinker and die on the streets, or you can join us on our “happy road of destiny”, or whatever stupid lie that shit chant states.  For a stepper to do this is bad enough, but for a clinician to do it is outright HARMING and CONDEMNING for the client.

First of all, the vast majority of people with a substance use issue get better (moderate or abstain) ON THEIR OWN.  A clinician who uses or recommends the 12 step cult in a treatment setting at all, should have their license suspended, until they have been de-programmed and trained in all the evidence-based help available.  This acquaintance actually believes she is giving clients a choice when she is creating nothing but a SELF-FULFILLING PROPHESY of FAILURE.

Dr. Adi Jaffe has given me permission to share the link below.  He writes a brilliant article that further outlines how this passage in the 12 step cult literature HARMS rather than helps people, doing a great job of explaining how this subterfuge harms and what to do about it.  This link will also lead you to a truly revolutionary outpatient center in Beverly Hills that can genuinely help you and those for which you care.  There should be more facilities and helpers like Dr. Jaffe!

Where we disagree is his statement “It’s time to dust off the covers, and incorporate the 12-steps into the bigger picture of addiction treatment.”  No sir.  It is time to get the 12 step cult religion OUT of addiction treatment altogether.  Any clinician who continues to push this dangerous cult should be reprimanded for doing so.  “Sponsors” can do whatever evil shit disguised as help they chose, but clinicians disguised as cult disciples need to revamp their work.  STAT!

What’s wrong with AA’S literature?  Everything!  How does “it work?”  It DOESN’T.

Please read and share everywhere.  Thank You!
