On AA and prescribed drugs

I was moved deeply by "Pill-Consciousness." I am a grateful member of AA. Also, I take psychotropic medicine. After six years in psychiatric units, as well as two years out, I can say from personal experience on the medicine that it has helped me immensely. It is nonaddicting and a great benefit to those that can be helped by it.

The Preamble states that AA "neither endorses nor opposes any causes." It is a great relief to me that members of my home group, as well as most others, accept me for me, and do not judge me.
