> Our differing conceptions of AA is interesting. I was close to a few AA members and acquainted with quite a few others. Although I never attended a meeting, they were described to me along with the role of their sponsors in their lives. I attended some MICA groups composed mainly of AA members. They seem very dependent on AA for almost all aspects of their lives.

Yes, some people really get into it. They can also volunteer for different things like leading meetings or becoming a sponsor.

> It's sort of like psychoanalysis. Expect to be on the couch once a week for the rest of your life.

I'm a great fan of psychoanalysis, but I'm also in favour of doing it as efficiently as possible.

> Indeed, the AA 12 steps model follows a printed rule-book to be followed explicitly.

That much is true.

> This is what I was exposed to. I don't know what any other group of AA members looks like.

Well, I admit I know even less!

> If a member of my family needed help to combat their addiction to alcohol, I would discourage them from going to AA.

It is my impression that AA is the last resort. You'd typically begin by trying to quit on your own.
