Theism-free Addiction Recovery

Hi! Just wanted to post this link for those who feel like they need to get a handle on an addiction, but are not comfortable with the whole 12-Step Program's theistic dependence on supernatural forces to overcome their problems:

http://www.rational.org

This site rejects the idea that anyone is "powerless over alcohol/drugs" and must surrender himself to a "higher power", and instead focuses on teaching a technique of recognizing what they call the "Addictive Voice", which is basically the reptilian brain trying to convince the neocortex to make the body obtain and ingest the substance in question. A very interesting perspective for anyone having a hard time stopping an undesirable behavior.
