I was listening to a podcast where the gentleman being interviewed was serving life in prison when he had an epiphany, in order to find serenity he had to change. He ended up going to AA in prison, but he wasn’t a drunk, nor did he do drugs. His issue was that he was an angry person and that anger manifested in physically hurting other people.
His point was that whether its drugs, alcohol, sex, self harm, harming others, it doesn’t matter, the 12 steps can help anyone.
He ended getting out of prison and is an author now. I wish I could remember his name, it was a very inspirational interview.
