I once heard the difference between spirituality and religion explained by an old timer at an AA meeting.... His said that Religion is for people who are afraid to go to hell. Spirituality is for those who have been there and dont want to go back. We addicts have undoubtedly been thru hell and once clean need to find a power greater than ourselves to help keep us from going back there.
