A fresh interpretation of the healing process established by the Twelve Steps, with an eye toward the social, cultural, and psychological factors that affect men--and thus their recovery from addiction. In A Man's Way through the Twelve Steps, author Dan Griffin uses interviews with men in various stages of recovery, excerpts from relevant Twelve Step literature, and his own experience to offer the first holistic approach to sobriety for men. Readers work through each of the Twelve Steps, learn to reexamine negative masculine scripts that have shaped who they are and how they approach recovery, and strengthen the positive and affirming aspects of manhood.This groundbreaking book offers the tools needed for men to work through key issues with which they commonly struggle, including difficulty admitting powerlessness, finding connection with a Higher Power, letting go of repressed anger and resentment, contending with sexual issues, and overcoming barriers to intimacy and meaningful relationships.A Man's Way through the Twelve Steps offers practical advice and inspiration for men to define their own sense of masculinity and thus heighten their potential for a lifetime of sobriety.

This book is the first to deal comprehensively with the spoken discourse of Alcoholics Anonymous (AA), particularly within AA meetings. These meetings are generally not easily accessible to researchers, but are AA s central activity and provide the forum through which it operates. AA is actually constituted and manifested through its discursive practices. To therefore understand what happens in meetings is to appreciate AA, particularly as it does not have a coherent system of defining propositional beliefs or a recognizable hierarchy and authorized spokesmen. This study also examines AA written texts, including Alcoholics Anonymous (The Big Book) and the Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions. Without a thorough knowledge of its written texts, one can only have a limited understanding of AA meeting discourse since these written texts are constantly alluded to and are the source of the Twelve Steps, which provide a framework and the guiding principles for AA life stories. The first part of the book is a general introduction to AA and gives an account of how its discourse emerged. Part two focuses on the personal narratives of AA, its primary genre, and it is noted how these specialize in a particular process of self evaluation, allowing speakers to reconstruct their life stories though a process of co-construction which enables members to make new attributions for both their alcoholism and their recovery. It also examines the form and structure of the AA meeting, where it is noted how the modern AA meeting is a formal, even ritualized event; all members having clear expectations of what is to happen. The study also uses actual material from AA meetings to illustrate that: AA meeting discourse is perhaps unique in the degree of discursive symmetry it creates between members. Through sharing, the individual voice of recovery gains ascendancy over the voice of active alcoholism. This is not only as a manifestation of recovery but also constitutive of it as the voice of recovery is internalized, creating for members a new alignment to the world and others. Through constructing their compulsive drinking as a disease of body, mind and spirit, AA members find a new form of coherence in their lives which does not apportion blame either to themselves or the people and circumstances of their lives. However, they remain responsible for being in a fit state mentally and spiritually to resist the physical trigger - the first drink. In their accounts of everyday life, AA members display their acceptance of people, places and things as well as the display of willingness to work the AA programme. Presenting their lives as governed by these two principles is evidence of a new personal alignment, one less driven by self interest and more inclined to take opportunities as they arise rather than force events to their will. This is seen as a spiritual realignment which challenges the previous alcoholic tendency to be at odds with other people and society at large."
