We are a secular based substance and alcohol recovery group. We are for those people looking for support but just can't do the God-based AA thing.
We have a 24/7 chat, articles, and resources on recovery. We believe in self empowerment, not Godly goodness, in our goals
Our Site is S.W.O.G. Sober Without Gods
Some quotations from our site to yours:
If this is your God, he's not very impressive. He's got so many psychological problems; he's so insecure. He demands worship every seven days. He goes out and creates faulty humans and then blames them for his own mistakes. He's a pretty poor excuse for a supreme being.
-Captain James T. Kirk; Star Trek: The God Thing
A god whose creation is so imperfect that he must be continually adjusting it to make it work properly seems to me a god of relatively low order, hardly worthy of any worship.
- Martin Gardner
Ignorance is preferable to error; and he is less remote from the truth who believes nothing, than he who believes what is wrong.
- Thomas Jefferson
All priests dread the advance of science. They preach bigotry and fanaticism at the expense of human reason. A band of dupes and imposters, they sponsor ignorance, absurdity, untruth, charlatanism, and falsification.
Shake off all the fears of servile prejudices, under which weak minds are servilely crouched. Fix Reason firmly in her seat, and call on her tribunal for every fact, every opinion. Question with boldness even the existence of a God; because, if there be one, he must more approve of the homage of reason than that of blindfolded fear.
