Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) is an international mutual aid fellowship founded in 1935 by Bill Wilson and Dr. Bob Smith (Bill W. and Dr. Bob) in Akron, Ohio. AA states that its "primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics achieve sobriety". With other early members Wilson and Sm...
Alcoholics Anonymous and their 12 step program originated back in the 1930s with Bill Watson and Dr. Bob Smith.
""It's a funny thing." he said at last. "What I hate most about myself, my alcoholism, was the one thing God used to bring me back to him. Because of it, I know I can't survive without God. I have to depend on him to make it through each and every day. Maybe that's the redeeming value of alcoholism. Maybe God is calling us alcoholics to teach the saints what it means to be dependent on him and on his community on earth."" "Alcoholics Anonymous came out of a discovery of Bill Wilson. On his own, Bill had stayed sober for six months until he made a trip out of town, where a business deal fell through. Depressed, wandering a hotel lobby, he heard familiar sound of laughter and of ice tinkling in glasses. He headed toward the bar, thinking "I need a drink." Suddenly a brand new thought came to him: "No I don't need a drink-I need another alcoholic!" Walking instead toward the lobby telephones, he began the sequence of calls that put him in touch with Dr. Bob Smith, who would become AA's cofounder. Church is a ...
New Yorker 1995 A.A. AT THE CROSSROADS Now that America believes less in help-your-fellow than in blame-the-person-who made you-a-victim, can Alcoholics Anonymous still get its message across? By Andrew Delbanco and Thomas Delbanco Alcoholics Anonymous turns sixty this year, and while its size and reach show no signs of waning (there are more than a million members in the United States and Canada, and eight hundred thousand more scattered through a hundred and forty other countries), there is a feeling among A.A. veterans that the fellowship is at a crossroads. At A.A.'s General Service Office. in the Interchurch Centre in New York City, an austere office building at 120th Street and Riverside Drive that is known in the neighborhood as the God box. One staff member reflected recently that the Age of the Founders was long gone - Bill Wilson, the New York stockbroker who led the movement for more than thirty years, died in 1971, and Bob Smith, the Ohio surgeon who founded it with him, had died twenty years ...
NYT Magazine 1988 ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS More youths, blacks, women, homosexuals, Hispanics and alcoholics addicted to other drugs now join A.A. (Adapted from "Getting Better: Inside Alcoholics Anonymous©" by Nan Robertson, to be published by William Morrow in April.) By Nan Robertson Only Bill Wilson could have imagined A.A. as it is today, because only Bill, among the old- timers of Alcoholics Anonymous, had such grandiose, improbable dreams. In the summer of 1935, there were only two A.A. members - Wilson, a failed Wall Street stockbroker, and Dr. Bob Smith, a practicing surgeon - sitting in the Smith kitchen in Akron, Ohio, through half the night, chain-smoking and gulping coffee and trying to figure out how they could sober up other drunks like themselves. The society they had founded attracted only 100 members over the next four years; it would not even have a name until 1939. Now there are more than a million and a half of us around the world - members of the most successful, imitated, yet often mis ...

Saint Basil’s Keys to Spiritual Growth – A 12 Step Plan for Everyone Saint Basil the Great (330-379) is a Doctor of both the Orthodox Church in the East and the Roman Catholic Church in the West. The title of “Doctor” is given to one whose contributions to theology and the Church is substantial. He is credited with being one of the founders of monasticism in the Eastern Church. Alcoholics Anonymous was started by Bill Wilson and Dr. Bob Smith in 1935 at Akron, Ohio. They believed that recovering alcoholics could maintain sobriety with fellowship and especially by working with other alcoholics to help them achieve sobriety. Over a number of years they worked out Twelve Steps suggested as part of a program of recovery from alcoholism. These steps have been the basis of other 12 Step Programs such as Narcotics Anonymous and Overeater’s Anonymous. A little less than 1600 years earlier, Saint Basil outlined a 12 Step program of his own that he called KEYS to spiritual growth. It seems to me that ever ...
Hot as blue blazes in Old Monterey today. I walked over to the camera shop and stopped-off for about 30 minutes of the noon Mass.at San Carlos Cathedral. The topic of the homily was Alcoholics Anonymous and the role two Catholic nuns played in helping Dr. Bob and Bill Wilson to get the fellowship started. The priest actually said: "Bill Wilson and Dr. Whomever..." Gad, sacrilege. Dr. Bob Smith co-founder of AA. Without his contribution AA would not be the same organization it is today. Anyway, I thought it curious that the Mass would be centered around the recovery possible in AA for problem drinkers and people with other addictions. I recommend AA to anyone who thinks they may have a problem with alcohol or other addictive substances. It's free. Check it out. Also the church cat, an orange calico, followed me into the church and stared at me during the Mass. She has green eyes. Spooked me a little. What does it all mean? Time to check my snail mail and to take my afternoon nap. Have a great afternoon eve ...

May 1935 - Bill Wilson and Dr. Bob Smith get together for the first meeting of Alcoholics Anonymous
Dear Christian In Recovery, The Bible warns believers not to be unequally yoked together with unbelievers and yet that is exactly what happens when a Christian joins AA, or a Christian Ministry uses AA's 12 Steps. Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers. For what partnership has righteousness with lawlessness? Or what fellowship has light with darkness? What accord has Christ with Belial? Or what portion does a believer share with an unbeliever? 2 Corinthians 6:14-15 There is no question that Alcoholics Anonymous is a non-christian organization, but Christians excuse this by claiming that the founders of AA were Christians and that AA has a Christian heritage via The Oxford Group. When asked about the occult activities of the two co-founders of AA, Bill Wilson and Dr. Bob Smith, Christians involved in the recovery movement, excuse them by saying that these things were the innocent experimentations of men who were earnestly looking for ways to help suffering alcoholics. However, careful research of AA l ...
