Penn and Teller Bullshit – 12 Stepping
I have a lot of respect for anyone who recovers from an addiction and more power to you if you find something that works for you. However, I’ve always thought the 12 step program’s actual 12 step text is pretty lame shit.
I also don’t like that it’s a bunch of alcoholics sitting around talking about being an alcoholic. If I wanted to lose weight, I would spend very little time with my fat friends. Sitting around talking about your problems and your weakness seems backwards to me.
I’d find someone who was not a drug addict or at least someone who was but completely crushed it and learn from them. I don’t want to be anywhere near a bunch of people who are looking for a place to socialize and belong. Just a bunch of enablers to me. Sorry if this offends. Watch the show. They hit it on the head for me.
However, if you really need help with an addiction and you have no place to turn, this is a better start than nothing and I commend the effort.
It just pisses me off when people say “turn it over to God and admit you have no control.” Ridiculous. Yeah? Well, I’m powerless to pay my bills. I turn that over to God then. We’ll say what my apartment owner says when I try that at the first of the month.
