One thought on “Additional literature for Aspirants

  1. I am a mother who loves her son exponentially. I lost his father to suicide. I do not want my son to follow this path. He is only just recovering from drug addiction, a severe marriage breakup, and separation from his two sons. I am trying to understand this organization/philosophy. I am reading, trying to get a balanced view of AA. My son has iced me out of his life and this is odd. My concern, of course is, has he come under the influence of a cult or worse. Based on what I have thus far researched, it seems somewhat reasonable and balanced. The thoroughness of your Facebook site , its links and articles help me realize AA seems to embrace transparency. I have much to learn and understand and am hoping my son will reengage a discourse on the topic of AA and his experiences within it. I am concerrbned for his safety based on his experiences of allowing evil and non-evil demons and spirits to overtake his body. It is possible I have misunderstood. My head began reeling upon being informed of this. Any balanced and communication from you would be welcomed.
