5.0 out of 5 stars Alcoholics Recover Without God 23 May 2015
By Neil F - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book fills what was a major gap in AA Recovery Literature.

Over the years, there have been an abundance of stories documenting the recovery of believers but the stories of recovering atheists, agnostics and free thinkers has, for the most part been ignored. Even worse, many such prospects have approached AA over the years and left discouraged when they were told their only hope for recovery was through acceptance of a god. Many may have died before finding like minded role models.

"Do Tell" sets the record straight. Since the earliest days of AA, atheists and agnostics have recovered in AA without ever coming to believe in a god. "Do Tell" relates the personnal stories of 30 current members of AA who identify as atheist or agnostic. This is a small sample of the many who, over the years, have not relied on a god for their sobriety.

If you have a problem with alcohol or for that matter any other addiction, do not be discouraged by the fact that some will claim you must find god to recover. The facts speak clearly through the stories in "Do Tell."

I highly recommend this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you’re an atheist or agnostic in AA, this book will help you feel connected to and part of Alcoholics Anonymous. 31 May 2015
By John S. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is an important book because in Alcoholics Anonymous our stories are important. In telling them, we are reminded of who we are and where we’ve been, and in hearing the stories of others we forge the bonds upon which our sobriety is built.

In the forward, Marya Hornbacher writes, “These stories show us that the language of the Steps is not enough to keep us out if we want in. Underneath the black and white of the print on the page, the principles exist – dynamic, subject to interpretation, always in flux, and not listed anywhere in the traditional literature, so far as I can find”.

If you’re an atheist or agnostic in AA, this book will help you feel connected to and part of Alcoholics Anonymous. You will find your story within the stories contained in this book.

3.0 out of 5 stars Seems rushed, but not bad 3 Nov. 2015
By Amy G. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I know these are stories written by numerous people, but I wish the editing was better. The sentiments expressed in the personal accounts written here are good, but I found it somewhat difficult to get past the lack of punctuation and poor grammar throughout the book, even in the forward. I was glad to find a compilation of agnostic/atheist experiences with AA (including these individuals' difficulties with the program, and their adaptations to it), but this could've been a much better book with better editing.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must-read for any alcoholic, atheist or not 30 May 2015
By Enzie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I just finished reading this last night. Unbelievable stories! I have never felt so certain that I belonged in AA as I did when I was turning these pages. Knowing there are others out there who think and believe as I do, but who also believe that Alcoholics Anonymous is the best route to sobriety, is extremely comforting and reaffirms my own desire to stay sober. It's about time!

5.0 out of 5 stars About time! 27 May 2015
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
It is so nice to know all the various paths that one can follow to belong as a full fledged member in AA without a belief in an omnipotent god. Too long have we kept still about our beliefs in order to try to fit in.
