In a recent issue of the Los Angeles Times, Amy Lee Coy told her story of struggling in AA for TWENTY YEARS before finally quitting drinking for good by leaving the program, casting aside the disease concept & addict label, and taking control of her life.  Miss Coy’s story is a great example of both the destructive power of conventional treatment ideas, and the ability to escape this trap, taking responsibility for your problem, and taking responsibility for ending it and moving on with a better life.

For an inspirational story, check out her book, From Death Do I Part: How I Freed Myself From Addiction, and for a quick summary of her views, read the Los Angeles Times story here:,0,754278.story
