I suppose this lady could start her own group that she thinks could work better for alcoholics than AA. Actually, the 12 steps used in AA were taken from 6 tenants used by a religion called The Oxford Group, in England. But, I know zip about that.
I don't believe this woman did this video with any thought to creating something that works better.
This isn't a matter of "if you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all" She was giving her warning of what pitfalls lie ahead.
Why do you supposing, Pemerson, that because this woman expressed that there are problems with something, she needs to be prepared to come forth with a solution?
I think she stated very well that (and she is speaking to women) that when you are in a place where you realize you need to do something about your drinking, in general, your thought processes are not all that great.
When you are conflicted, scared, confused....to the point where you might say you would literally say the lords prayer backwards and sacrifice a newborn if that would get you to stop drinking, you are in a place where you can be taken advantage of.
There are all kinds of sexual predetors in AA, both male and female. However, people, male and female can certainly be taken advantage of in other ways.
I, for instance, don't feel the need to, nor am I qualified to start a better way to detox and help alcoholics. Actually, I have no desire to do so either.
However, like this woman, and the man in the 2nd video, I am qualified, and clear headed enough, and not subject to censure to express what I know to happen all the time.
As far as the Oxford Group....so?
The Oxfords Group's influence can be found in Alcoholics Anonymous. Both Bill Wilson and Bob Smith, the two founders of Alcoholics Anonymous, were members of the Oxford Group. Though early AA sought to distance itself from the Oxford Groups, Wilson later acknowledged, "The early AA got its ideas of self-examination, acknowledgment of character defects, restitution for harm done and working with others straight from the Oxford Group and directly from Sam Shoemaker, their former leader in America, and from nowhere else."
The Oxford group has nothing to do with alcoholism.
