VICE looking for WOMEN PREYED on Sexually while they were attending AA or ex- AA members who were harmed.

I have been contacted by a VICE reporter, Cecilia— the online magazine not the TV show. Millions of readers are there.

Here we go…please share everywhere. FACE BOOK and twitter too.

“Hi, my name is Cecilia and I’m a reporter with VICE.

Right now, I’m reporting a piece on the culture of sexual predation in AA.

For this article, I am hoping to speak with female AA attendees (current or former) who have been sexually assaulted or preyed on by male AA attendees.

I am more than willing to work with sources to protect their identities. To reach me, please shoot me an e-mail at cecianasta@gmail.com. Thanks so much for your time.”

 

 

 

Say No to AA for a DUI – Stand up for 1st Amendment Rights

ACLU image

I think its that time of the year where many might find themselves being sent to AA.

Many have no idea that AA is not a government agency. That AA is not regulated by the state. That AA is not safe. That AA is not a drug treatment program . It’s a  group—- a fellowship….lay persons coming together.

So why are our courts sending EVERYONE to AA meetings for any violation and why are the Courts interconnected with rehabs, sober livings that are totally 12 step run. How long has this been going on? Since Drug court began in 1989? No ….it started before that , but when drug courts began it got oh so much worse.

 

Now in AA, some are there to help. Some are there to harm. Some are there to serve so they can stay “sober” ….AA style….. Some are there to take whatever they can and never give back.

But where’s the warning label for Alcoholic Anonymous? Like Cigarettes…one day an Insider who worked in the industry outed those guys. We think AA needs to be outed for who is there, who is sent there and who goes there to prey on innocent civilians.

Even though there is a “leader” or “secretary” who picks or is picked that day or the week before – they don’t necessarily lead unless its a cult group like the PG group-

Most AA members don’t feel  empowered to really lead for the most part.

When they read the preamble before every meeting — how come they don’t say

” AA is a drug /alcohol treatment program” . ..oh that’s right …That’s because it is not that. So what is AA really? Is it a fellowship? Then how can you get ordered to join a religious organization from a Judge? Is it a religion? TO some it is. It’s religious for sure.

Over 35 Courts have Deemed it so. Is it a Drug Treatment Program? No —-other wise it would need to be regulated by the state. But AA’s rehabs grandfathered themselves in way back when as something called ” NON Medical treatment and they are governed by The Department of Health? How is this going on ? Well it is.

So I guess the next question is how do we undo this. So if it’s not medical treatment how is Insurance paying for it . I mean rehab— 30 K a month- or $1,000 a day paid by Athem Blue Cross for Action Family where no medical anything is occurring…Just being bused to AA meetings. Just attending AA meetings. No doctors, no PhD’s, no groups let by real therapists? And maybe your daughter or son may be bused to a place where all the AA meetings are filled with men like Eric Earle, near trailer parks- connected to the DOC filled with not so wonderful not really AA members. That your Daughter or son may mix and mingle with these kinds of criminals.

We need to educate the public and stop the judges and the ab541 classes from sending people to AA for a DUI offense.

Why does Matthew Perry push his “sobriety” AA so hard?

Screen Shot 2015-08-20 at 9.59.07 PM

Why does he have to become the next Nick Nolte of the 8o’s or Robin Williams 20 years ago or any other famous stepper? I’m happy that he got over his booze problem if he really was addicted to alcohol, but why does he have to now make it his life mission to go speak at Drug Court and The Congress and create his own special sober living. That sort  of pressure to carry around in front of the whole world is kinda of heavy weighted…isn’t it?

What happens when he decides  he wants to leave the cult and drink moderately. . We have seen that before. Robin Williams wanted to.

Does Matthew Perry know or care that he is outright breaking all of his glorious AA traditions. Not that I believe that they are anything worth listening too….But for gods sake…cant these movie stars , fuck up, get their shit together and get on with their lives?

I guess not, we are  in Hollywood… the land of the cults,. The land of AA is so cool that a character  had to go to a meeting in the “PLAYER ” to take  a meeting . What horse shit that was.

I feel as though we are up against such a monster with this type of preaching from someone as famous as Matthew. I sure would like to show him the film .

Yet deep  down I know that AA is dying from within. IF we can stop the court ordering it will shrink by 50%. I was invited by a women in San Fran to take the film to Drug Courts and show  it. I think I will.

Its been a long 4 years and I am happy to have won an award and its really nice to finally show the film to the world. Many millions have been brainwashed by AA.. Not just the AA members. Hundreds of millions in our society today think AA and its rhetoric are scientific fact and bought into much of their bullshit.
