Barefoot’s World : A few years ago I discovered Bob Pearson’s (GSO senior advisor) 1986 General Service Conference prescient warning about the danger of AA’s growing rigidity, here at this website created by the legendary Barefoot Bob Hardison (1933-2009; sobriety date, Feb. 28th, 1974). On entering the site, you will find scads of material on American history, the defense of liberty, and the promotion of tolerance – fascinating in and of itself – but scroll down to Barefoot’s Recovery Pages and enjoy the ride – especially fun are his “cowboy-isms.”

Stanton Peele Addiction Website: Love him or hate him (I’m somewhere in between), at least you will know the arguments 0f those who are not fond of AA and 12 Step programs. A psychologist, Peele is clear that he believes the disease model of addiction is not only an inadequate representation of what lies behind addiction but, as well, the model causes far more harm than good. Other disagreements with AA: spirituality in AA, for Peele, is merely a euphemism for religion; harm reduction as opposed to abstinence is the better way for most people to go; and most alcoholics/addicts recover on their own with either no recovery counseling or with short term, cognitively based programs. Peele writes for The Huffington Post, Psychology Today, and is often an invited guest on the major American TV networks.
