Response to WhiskeyGrinder (Reply #25)

28. The article cites research that does not include many other studies

That show group support and peer support are critical to quitting drinking. The mental health description ignores AA published pamphlets discussing the need for outside treatment and medication for many members. Plus, the idea of hitting bottom no longer means what you describe. While true in the beginning that the first members of AA had hit a very low bottom, since AA establishment and new understanding that is no longer true. AA is now seeing many new members that are young but no longer want to suffer from their disease.
