« Buddhism: theistic or atheistic | Main | Revised Format »

11 March 2006



This is a very moving piece and resonates with me as I recently began a placement within an alcohol team in Sheffield. Pretty much a cinderella service compared to the substance misuse service which has quadrupled in size over the last 7 years, we are also facing the shutting down of one of the few "dry" residential rehabilitation services in the area next month. I had the opportunity to visit it recently and was impressed by the therapeutic model it offered, based on the "12 steps". I did not know a great deal about this approach, developed by the founders of AA, but I have been interested to look at the 12 steps in a pureland context. I'll post something later this week.


That is perhaps the best way to define the struggle with alcohol addiction i have ever read. it is just moving, clear and makes a person aware of the problems alcoholics face when working toward soberity. I am so glad someone understands.


I would like to know to you do you have any up-coming conference information.

This brought a tear to my eye. I'm printing this and I'm going to pass it on to my "sobriety sangha."

This has evoked such an understanding of my Aunt's 35 yr. struggle to stay sober. The last 8 yrs of her life were dedicated to AA. I hope she got a chance to read this. I love and miss you, Gigi.
