Btw, turns out Bill, the AA founder, maybe quit drinking, but his other addictions went into overdrive.
And another point: AA, which preaches the abstinence of mind-altering substances (and gave birth to NA and this-A and that-A) freaking enables tobacco and caffeine addictions.
Another btw: I wish someones would confirm or deny or question the op point. I do realize that when I think about a subject for a while and then try to share, I tend to boil it down till its a bit hard to chew, and also that this is merely a general forum, but good grief.
