cbs 48 hours picBe sure to tune in this Saturday night to the new episode that will cover the long awaited Karla Brada story. Brought to us by Gabrielle Glaser, http://gabrielleglaser.com journalist, author of Her Best Ket Secret, who was introduced to 48 hours by a neighbor who read her book. The story in Pro Public where Gabrielle interviewed, Hector and Jaro Mendez, Karla’s parents was a precursor to this all. http://www.propublica.org/article/how-alcoholics-anonymous-can-be-a-playground-for-violence

In September of 2011, Karla Brada was brutally murdered by Eric Allen Earle who was court ordered to AA over 52 times over 22 years, instead of jail time in some instances. I follow this story in my film The 13th Step. http://the13thstepfilm.com.

CBS has some 8 million viewers for this show. It will be the biggest out reach to date with and investigative journalistic approach into the dark under side of Alcoholics Anonymous and its relationship with our Courts and Judges. It will be the beginning of our work to CHANGE THE SYSTEM.

We will relaunch the petition we already have up and contact Governor Brown to present this to him.

I will make appointments with the head judges of 8 courts in the Los Angeles area.  Santa Monica, LAX, Downtown, Inglewood, Beverly Hills, Santa Clarita, San Fernando and Van NUYS, asking to show part of my film and explain/ educate what AA is and what it is not. Leaving them with information and instructions as a grassroots advocate for safety , to stop sending our citizens, especially young people to any AA or NA meeting.

This petition was already sent to the White House, President Obama, VP Biden and Both Michelle and Jill Biden. No response was received. We have contacted Jerry Brown’s office but have to send a written request to present by snail mail. Please sign and share this one if you have not done so already. We will proceed with this action.

Down the road…We will be contacting judges at The State level who will be asked to lay down the law that AA coercion on both sides is UNCONSTITUTIONAL…and add to it that if they insist on forcing our citizens to self support groups that are unsafe, and no leader is present , then they MUST by STATE law offer the 6 other free secular options.

 

IF you or someone would like to help with this work in your state or country, please contact me at makeaasafer@gmail.com

Thank you

Monica

I need a Break! Im tired! TGIF…and I am no longer in AA!!! PRAISE THE LORD!!!! opps did I say that?

Yup..I just wrote that. Cause I am so tired….This is what I need.  Then I need some of this… then I might need some of this… and some of this…A nice dinner out with my husband. A glass of wine. Some live music. I love love being gone from AA. Gone from the thinking, Gone from the nonsense. Gone from sitting in those stupid ass meetings.  I hope you all have a nice weekend. Away from your computers, away from AA, away from the blogs and are living your lives and having fun with friends, family and people you love and like. Not having to put up with sitting in rooms with nuts and mentally ill people we do not know etc. romantic dinner cartoonwine glassesspacandlespic

this article is by Peter Smith, published on October 30, 2014. He mentions our favorite Lance Dodes who co wrote wrote The Sober Truth with his son Zachary Dodes.

“Van den Brink strongly believes that reduced drinking is a viable treatment goal for alcohol-use disorders.”

Van den Brink, who co-founded the Amsterdam Institute for Addiction Research is using the drug nalmephene. He also mentions Hams Harm Reduction by Ken Anderson
