In the online community that I host many of our members have never attended an AA meeting. They do not call themselves alcoholics, even though they have chosen to get sober and stay that way after alcohol became the problem, rather than the solution in their lives. We also have members who have tried AA and decided to move on, and others who are satisfied long term members of AA lending support to the group.
We talk together everyday about the ins and outs of living life alcohol-free without needing to debate the correctness of any particular approach. This kind of community is the kind of community that is changing the face of sobriety and allowing people to drop the stigma and get focused on what works for them.
