I'm not an athiest, but the religious part of the meetings is what has kept me from going also. I have wanted to go for years and haven't because I don't want to be force fed religion anymore. I believe in God and all of the things I have been taught in life, but that didn't help me not pick up a bottle to wash away my pain and emptiness. I just poured my bottles of wine and liquor down the sink for the first time in my life and I am going to be 49 in september. I have been drunk for the most part, except when I was pregnant, for the past 30 years and I am not going to be drunk for the next 30. God willing. This is the first day of my life. June 14, 2009.

I do believe in God and this wasnt a problem for me. But i am reading this book that tells you to use whatever you. Even lilke the earth and stuff like that. But it is really important to put your faith in something i think personally.
