The "No 12-Steps!" Campaign

"You have no conception these days of how much failure we had. You had to cull over hundreds of these drunks to get a handful to take the bait."
--From William Griffith Wilson's Speech at the Memorial Service for Dr. Bob, Nov. 15, 1952 (and inadvertently admitting in so many words that 12-Step has always been a failure)

The ARID Site is one of very few authentic anti-addiction websites which have realized a simple truth through the years: 12-Step programs have NEVER worked to end the scourge of bad habits. In fact it can be unequivocally stated that 12-Step "treatment" causes the very problems that its supporters claim to control and, when it comes down to KNOCKING IT OFF, serves no purpose due to its ineffectiveness:

More will indeed be revealed as long as people are willing to take a courageous stance by standing up and speaking out. Beware of imitations that only claim to be doing something about the problem at hand!

About The "No 12-Steps!" Campaign

The "No 12-Steps!" Campaign is a simple educational device webmasters, writers and other concerned citizens can employ in a simple gesture to get the word out as to the real history and dismal failure of 12-Step programs in the realm of rehabilitation regarding compulsive behaviors.

Ideally, the campaign is quite simple when you have webspace to publish to (or simply have a blog and just want to place some simple HTML online in ONE step):

  1. Copy and paste the following HTML code into you page to link back to this page:
<CENTER>
<TABLE BORDER="4" CELLPADDING="2" ALIGN="Center">
<CAPTION ALIGN=Bottom>
<A HREF="http://www.thearidsite.org/NO12STEP.HTM"><B>No 12-Steps!</B></A>
</CAPTION>
<TR>
<TD><P ALIGN=Center>
<A HREF="http://www.thearidsite.org/NO12STEP.HTM"><IMG SRC="http://img458.imageshack.us/img458/6095/no12stcrxv4.gif" BORDER="0" ALT="No 12-Steps!" WIDTH="80" HEIGHT="80"></A></TD>
</TR>
</TABLE>
</CENTER>

The resulting link will look like the following:

No 12-Steps!

No 12-Steps!


Advanced Campaign

A more ideal campaign involves the use of an "interstitial essay" between the link on the page you would like to have the link upon and the real link at the end of an essay. This naturally takes a bit more effort solely for the fact that an essay needs to be written:

  1. Use the NO12STCR.GIF graphic but first link it to the URL of the essay that you have written detailing the adverse consequences of 12-Step indoctrination that either you or a loved one has endured.

  2. At the end of the essay provide the real HTML link to this campaign page as detailed above.

  3. E-mail The ARID Site the URL of the essay so that I can provide a link to it here!

As this website grows and its presence is further known the campaign will grow accordingly. At the time of this writing The ARID Site is the first in engaging in such an online effort. I just hope that it doesn't become the last.
