Incidentally, I know more people it worked for than not.

I believe everyone benefits from getting in touch with their Higher Power. While you don't really need to be in AA for that, it can help, perhaps because of support from peers who are seeking the same thing.

The term Higher Power is used because this power need not be the Christian God, but it could be the Universe or even your Higher Self. I think it helps to have faith in something bigger or higher than your Ego.

The closest I got to AA was reading the Nicotine Anonymous book. I found it inspiring. My understanding is that the x Anonymous communities are for those for whom other ways have failed. The book said that you may have to hit "rock-bottom" before you can recover -- when you are desperate, and you are out of ideas, then maybe xA is your last resort.

I don't know if I got this phrase from the NicA book, but I've found it very useful: when you're craving, tell yourself that "This too will pass".
