Man, West Virginia AA meetings
Man is a town in Logan County, West Virginia. If you live in Logan County and are coping with alcohol addiction, you may be interested in finding AA meetings in Man. Newcomers (beginners) to the West Virginia Alcoholics Anonymous program may wonder how the AA program works. Some people are under the impression that they must be religious to participate in AA. While the 12-Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous is considered a spiritual set of principles, AA has never affiliated with organized religion. The word “spiritual,” as it relates to AA, means something that a person feels connected to (outside of oneself). The meaning of the word spiritual is very individualized. A spiritual connection may involve spending time in nature, meditating, or participating in AA. In AA, members are encouraged to identify a “Higher Power.” Although the word “God” is sometimes linked with the term Higher Power in AA literature, many AA members consider their AA group their Higher Power. AA literature (such as Alcoholics Anonymous: The Big Book) describes “spiritual awakenings” experienced by recovering AA members. A spiritual awakening can differ vastly from person to person. In general terms, a spiritual awakening is a sudden (or sometimes gradual) change in a person’s perspective. When a recovering person sees a situation differently, it can lead to dramatic changes, often resulting in a permanent absence of the desire to drink alcohol.
