For what it's worth, this is what I see:

Someone is offering help with no strings attached, for a very real and prevalent problem.

People who have/are in denial about having this problem get a little angry, and ridicule them

Don't bite the hand that feeds you.

Very true and personally if it helps even 1 person I consider it a success.

I only ridicule the "God" portion of 12 steps. But that's my own problem :-)

If it's effecting your professional life then you're either a porn star, pimp or a prostitute!

If it's not too intrusive, I'd be interested to know what kind of circumstances led to your getting involved with the group.


Ah, I won't go into details here on a public forum - suffice it to say that some of the examples I alluded to in earlier comments are relevant and brought me down to the point where I could no longer function as a person.
Essentially I ended up at the point where I was going to lose everything that I had and valued in life.
Frankly I didn't know where to turn but a series of events brought SLAA to my attention and I thought "I need help and I'll give that a go".


Perhaps you got to the stage where you felt the need to reacquaint yourself with the finer things in life?
