DECEMBER’S READ: Her Best Kept Secret by Gabrielle Glaser!

Feel free to discuss our current reads in the You Are Not Powerless Chat Box where we will also meet every Wed. (or more often as needed).

Inspiration but no hidden Oxford like cultism…not anti-religious just anti cultism or partial to any one particular religion) I am open to ideas on how we can come to consensus on this so that no one feels offended or that the You Are Not Powerless Book Club is not inclusive (for all book except 12 step based material of course).
I may be being a bit Pollyanna about it, but I would LOVE to see people of varying beliefs and perspectives come together on a comprehensive reading list that will educate, empower and inspire as many people as possible without support just ONE way, view, perspective, etc.
All AA, NA 12-Stepped approved/supporting literature is unwelcomed.
Books are to at least in some way relate to the theme of “Freedom From All 12 Step Propaganda, Doctrine and Faux Treatment.
Books that are well researched and offer current tested modalities of treatment for conditions of substance use and or over use are best.
We will suffer no text promoting the DISEASE fallacy or POWERLESSNESS lie.
Books can be serious…humorous…provocative and
I am in the very initial stages of planning this and am open to all positive input, suggestions and assistance. My motivation for doing it is based upon my experience with connecting with this powerful community. I seek to enhance it and help it to grow and to be there for others as they emerge from the bowels of 12 step hell, lies, chaos and abuse. I sincerely feel that as we grow and make more and more multi-faceted resources available more and more lives will be saved. We will be letting people know that they are not alone when they leave AA or NA or any 12 step trap. People need and deserve to know that.
I also am a proponent of the belief that Knowledge is POWER! We will empower ourselves and others by reading the phenomenal books, resources and current research that is being generated. Our enrichment and experience will be the antithesis of the AA/NA anti-intellectualized experience.
I hope this helps people in our community as we move through another holiday season and towards a powerful and exciting New Year!
YOU ARE POWERFUL!
