If you are also leaving AA (or any other 12 step group) and you would like to submit an essay to the blog then please write to whyileftaa @ yahoo (dot) co (dot) uk (-hopefully you can follow that and the spambots can’t).
Your story belongs to you, so if you change your mind and would like it removed, that’s cool.
All stories will be anonymised or can use your name as you wish.
And just so we are clear, anyone sending abusive emails will be named and shamed – there are plenty of pro AA and recovery websites, and I’m not arguing with your right to do as you wish with your life. Please just extend us the same courtesy. Trolls will be banned without discussion.
