Do you want to stop drinking ?

This site, Alcoholics 12 Steps, is for atheist and agnostic newcomers to, and followers of, the AA 12 step program who want to give up problem drinking, but who are put off by the god stuff in the Alcoholics Anonymous twelve steps. Want to know if you are alcoholic? Check out what is an alcoholic?. On the 12 Steps page you can see the Atheists twelve steps and the Books page shows you how to buy the books. We will also list clinics which have bought the books.


Vince Hawkins is the author
of both Atheists Unofficial Guides to AA. One version is for newcomers and the other for oldtimers so a stepper can choose the most suitable. (Content is similar, but in a different order.)

He attends AA and is hopeful that when other problem drinkers eventually hit their rock bottoms and become desperate they will find help, too.

There is plenty of it out there, but the trick is in finding the right program to suit the stepper. It should take into account the individual’s beliefs and value system. Does a rehab center or program have a religious twist or are its meetings all-embracing?
