Alcoholics Anonymous isn't necessarily for everyone. I think the simple fact of the matter is that each person has his or her own agenda and may just not be ready to move on with their life. The level of depression that accompanies heavy drinking could also be one that goes much deeper than many realize.

Other factors that may have an influence on this program's success is whether or not the person has any additional problems other than just alcohol. Often times depression or loneliness is just what we see on the surface, and various behavioral patterns have been embedded into their everyday life through watching others or hanging out with the wrong crowds to feel more accepted in society.

I'm sure everyone is going to have a different story, but ultimately A.A. can't force you into becoming someone who is sober. It really comes down to the having the sheer burning desire within to break any unhealthy patterns and start fresh on a clean slate. For many individuals this is something that can only be achieved through intense will power by being scared into taking action, if they have a serious health problem arising.

I'm not sure 'all' of what goes into Alcoholics Anonymous, with regards to treatment. In the end, there's always going to be some people who just can't be helped unless they choose to help themselves first, by accepting who they are and who they want to become.
