Meet the Author

I drank for twenty years. Sometimes it worked, but too many times, I drank past my tolerance level and woke up shivering on some bathroom floor. It's been 14 years since my last drink. I wrote the content of this book while participating in a recovery meeting. It's not remarkable that I got sober, but I couldn't have done it without help. I'm hoping that my experiences as a sober non-believer can be of help to anyone out there who is sick and tired of being sick and tired.

    Yes indeed there are freethinkers in 12-step programs. Lillian

    Yes indeed there are freethinkers in 12-step programs. Lillian gives voice to us.
    In order for non-theists to remain in 12-step programs, we have to re-write the steps. 33 years for me in recovery without any gods!
