Wow, you make AA sound like Jehova's Witnesses!

It isn't supposed to be like what you describe. But I'm basing this on the NicA book, and maybe AA is worse. And it is a book, so may not accurately reflect the real world.

OK, I believe you. It's just that there are no official rituals that I'm aware of. It is up to the members of a group what habits to subscribe to. Moreover, you can start your own group.

I would say these are the members who are sold on it. It's like when a drug works really great for you, you want to sing its praises to everyone who'll listen.

I sure hope so, but I'm also sure you have a point.

I guess that is my point. Many people can't do it on their own, and they need psychosocial support.
