Quit now, or if you haven’t started, don’t! Here are the top ten reasons.
Peter is one of the best AA speakers of all time! Thank you Peter! With all the talk about success rates and how many people get sober, the most important thing to remember is that “It works if you work it!” Peter shares his amazing story of recovery and shows that anyone, anywhere, under any circumstance can recover from the debilitating illness of alcoholism… IF they work the program.

This is an intensive 12 Step Study Lecture, performed over the course of an entire weekend, guiding us through the first 165 pages of the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous.
If you want what we have to offer and are willing to go to any lengths to get it, then you are ready to take certain steps.
At some of these we hesitated. We thought we could find an easier softer way, but we could not.
With all the earnestness at our command we beg of you to be fearless and thorough from the very start. Some of us tried to hold on to our own ideas but the result was Zero until we let go absolutely.
Remember that we deal with alcohol; cunning, baffling and powerful.
Without help, it is too much for us.
But, there is one who has all power, some of us call it The Spirit of the Universe but you may call it anything you like!
Whatever you choose to call it…you must find it Now!
Half measures availed us nothing! We stood at the turning point. We asked for protection and care with complete abandon. Here are the steps we took as suggested for the program of recovery…
(paraphrased by me (Alvinmediashare1) from The Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous, Chapter 5 – How it Works).
Get ready for an AWESOME message delivered in an entertaining way! I love how Adam relates his story and his journey to recovery. This tape is full of laughs, but carries a strong message of hope and inspiration for us all! Sit back, relax, and enjoy!
From the book Alcoholics Anonymous: “In spite of the great increase in the size and span of this Fellowship, at its core it remains simple and personal. Each day, somewhere in the world, recovery begins when one alcoholic talks with another alcoholic, sharing experience, strength, and hope.”
What is the Twelve Step Model? How is it a “treatment for alcoholism” or “alcohol abuse?”
From Wikipedia: “A twelve-step program is a set of guiding principles (accepted by members as ‘spiritual principles,’ based on the approved literature) outlining a course of action for recovery from addiction, compulsion, or other behavioral problems. Originally proposed by Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) as a method of recovery from alcoholism, the Twelve Steps were first published in the book Alcoholics Anonymous: The Story of How More Than One Hundred Men Have Recovered from Alcoholism in 1939. The method was then adapted and became the foundation of other twelve-step programs. Twelve-step methods have been adopted to address a wide range of substance-abuse and dependency problems.”
You can find out more at: http://www.aa.org – Alcoholics Anonymous Official Site (And as should be blatantly obvious, we are in no way affiliated with them or any other 12 step program. We are just looking to provide hope to those suffering from alcoholism or addiction.)
“Addiction treatment” WORKS! There is addiction help out there and “addiction recovery” is possible. If you are battling “alcohol addiction” there are people who know EXACTLY what it is like!
It is important to note there are several ways for one to address his or her “alcohol abuse treatment.” “Substance abuse” is a very serious condition. Many need inpatient stays or counseling. The importance and purpose of this video, and all our other videos, is to show that recovery IS possible and to give hope to those who are struggling with substance abuse issues. Help IS out there!
From the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous: “Abandon yourself to God as you understand God. Admit your faults to Him and to your fellows. Clear away the wreckage of your past. Give freely of what you find and join us. We shall be with you in the Fellowship of the Spirit, and you will surely meet some of us as you trudge the Road of Happy Destiny.”
