Atheist and Sober without god - please be respectful

1 month 12 days I’ve tried aa meetings but like most atheist I refuse to believe in a higher power or have a spiritual awakening. I’m trying to find or make a local meeting for us but my community just gives me negative feedback. Or others in AA say im not willing to go to any length so I will fail and refuse to sponsor me. Its time for atheist to come out of the woodwork. Come on fellow atheist show your pride show we are here. We are not alone!

We need to find someone that knows how to start a social media campaign to bring us out of our hiding. Show your pride in who we are and we’re not scared of deing ambushed of being preached at. They can believe what they want. We live in reality.

Thank you Jay.Liza I just got home from work we have got a bit off subject. However I was speaking a little to far fetched when this began. You are exactly right I am wanting to get us all connected. Im tired of feeling alone I should say my wife and it in our sobriety. I am very happy to see how many have already connected. Now can we all use this to help each other in sobriety and our just to find friends that are also atheist.

The OP was looking for fellow atheists, not a debate. Off topic posts were moved to Derailment void. Please feel free to continue the discussion there if necessary.

Thank you for cleaning it up :black_heart: @Compen How are you doing?
