  1. Also advocated for lsd use to treat addiction and used it himselfon severaloccasionsby his own account. AA has done wonderful things for many many people but the revision of its history and semi-deification of its founders is a problem.

  2. Oh but ~~he~~ we will be so happy he stayed sober. Husband went through AA, bunch of judgemental azzholes. Jokes on them, he stayed sober probably longer than 90% of them ( they have a terrible rate of falling off the wagon).
