I think I have finally decided that while there are many aspects of the HOW Programme that I like, sponsorship, meetings(not too sure about 3) and working the steps, I do not like the imperative/must do part of the programme.
I have been around another fellowship for many years and the thought of “must do” would have you laughed/ejected from the rooms. I am interested in working the steps a non-HOW way.
It is however nearly impossible to find meetings and sponsors that actually actively promote this. This is an attempt to get the debate started and to promote non-How 12 step recovery. I have talked to a number of others committed like me to recovery but who don’t believe the HOW method is for us. Any others especially in South London who share my commitment but not to HOW.
