Ever been "court-ordered" to AA classes?!

Question: Ever been "court-ordered" to AA classes!?
Did you get anything out of it!?
Was this all "a big mistake" (haha)

It's too bad Julie and B!. Mama had these experiences!. They I'm sure
are infrequent!.

I was an Alateen sponsor for several years!. The program (for all AA-Alanon-and Alateen) is very sincere and does work for those who will
work it and really do want help!. I have seen it over, and over again!.

I don't know about court ordered attendance, but I believe it probably
should be an in treatment court ordered at least 2 weeks, to learn what is going on!. That may be of help to the person!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

According to AA's own publications, fully 60% of ALL AA newcomers attend as a result of coercion of some type!. The good news is that court-mandated attendance has been found to be unconstitutional by courts having jurisdiction over sixteen states, on the basis of AA being religious in nature!. Www@FoodAQ@Com

It is grossly unfair to A!.A!. for the Judaical system to dump drunks on the program of A!.A!. These people who are forced to attend usually have no desire to be there, they break our anonymity,and talk out of school about who attends!. A example is meeting someone at wal marts and being told in others presence,"oh yes I seen you down at alcoholics anonymous the other day" For this reason I seldom attend meetings even though I practice the principles and maintain my sobriety this way!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

You are an alcoholic!. Get help!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

You must have some Alcohol issues going on!Www@FoodAQ@Com
