Has anyone ever tried Emotions Anonymous?


It's a 12-step program similar to alcoholics anonymous, but designed for people with depression, anxiety, etc. There are a couple of EA groups that meet close to the city I live in so was thinking of checking them out. Many therapists treat anxiety similar to addiction - the body can become "addicted" to the anxiety response in a way similar to how addicts use substances to cope with external stimuli so the thinking is the program can help those with anxiety as well.


I've been out haunting the neighborhood
And everybody can see I'm no good
When I'm walking out between parked cars
With my head full of stars

Think its the same as AA - you can chose God as a higher power or you can chose something else as a higher power. It depends on your perspective and how you want to approach it.
