An Alternative Approach
What's different about the 12 Step Program?
The program (12-Step) way of looking at the whole business, is actually different than what we are used to.
It is even different from what normal people without these problems are used to.
The program is not about answering questions of how to beat the desire.
It is not an answer to the problem at all.
It does not make one "stronger" at all.
It is about changing myself and the way I think, so that I do not have the problem in the first place.
