If you are an atheist with a drinking problem, and you're tired of being told to go to AA, I understand. There are plenty of people out there discussing how they got sober as an atheist in AA, but not as many discussing getting sober without it. It's unfair to be expected to work around AA because it's the only game in town. I aim to change that. This is a collection of short essays discussing different issues and thoughts I've had in my first 6 months of sobriety. If you're an atheist who refuses to bend their beliefs to fit a program they don't believe in, you aren't alone. Ours is a minority without a strong voice, and this ebook is my contribution towards changing that.
