Some Are Sicker Than Others: The Glenn Beck Sobriety Story
Glenn Beck is an admitted (recovering) alcoholic. He says that alcohol and substance abuse had ruined his life. He says he no longer partakes. Now, I’m not the kind of guy who reveals his sobriety…but if I was, I would say that as a (20 year) AA recovering alcoholic, I can personally tell you that just because someone stops drinking it doesn’t mean that he stops being stupid.
Glenn Beck proves that beyond the shadow of a drink.
AA Step Number Ten: Continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong promptly admitted it.
While this would discount most any talk show host from staying sober, most talk show hosts don’t flaunt their sobriety like Beck. My guess is that Beck has never gotten down to the last of the AA Traditions…
AA Tradition Number Twelve: Anonymity is the spiritual foundation of all our traditions, ever reminding us to place principles before personalities.
My guess is that either Beck doesn’t honestly believe anything he says is untrue or he doesn’t know what he says is unfounded or misleading.
Whatever, Beck may be an alcoholic, but he certainly isn’t recovering very well. At least not the way Alcoholics Anonymous sees it.
