Survey: How Religious Influence in AA Affects Agnostics and Atheists

Tariq Martin, a Sociology major at Wheaton College in Norton, Massachusetts, is researching how the religious aspects of Alcoholics Anonymous affects people who identify as atheist and agnostic. The research will be conducted through a combination of personal interviews and this online survey.

The information he collects will be used specifically for the research project for Tariq’s Sociology Senior Seminar course. There are no risks to participating, and any of your personal information will be kept confidential throughout the research project.

If you would like to particpate in a personal interview with Tariq by phone or video conferencing, please contact him at to arrange a time and date. You can also reach out to Associate Professor of Sociology, Karen McCormack, who is supervising this research project. She can be reached by email at

The survey consists of several open-ended questions. Please enter your answers in the text boxes below. There is no limit to the number of characters you type into the text box, you may write as much as you like. When you hit the submit button, your responses will be uploaded into a spreadsheet and provided to Tariq. 

After this project is completed, we will post the findings at AA Beyond Belief, and Tariq will appear on our podcast to discuss what he learned. 

This survey is now closed.
