There's also an orthodoxy in the AA that believe you can drink wines.
It's a bit strange, I'm still in the process of understanding exactly what it is about, but there is a lot of people that call being an alcoholic a disease.
Also, a lot of alcoholic anonymous meetings have a lot of addicts of many natures.
I have heard speakers that spoke of their addictions to Mary Jane extensively.
Granted, I am pretty new to this, but I have found nothing but support.
