AA 83 TODAY

Postby Brock » Sun Jun 10, 2018 10:36 am

"I have placed both operation and myself in God's hands. I'm going to do what it takes to get sober and stay that way. Just before they stopped [at the hospital, where Dr. Bob was to perform surgery], Bill, who also had his practical side, gave him a bottle of beer . . . The bottle of beer Bill gave him that morning was the last drink he [Dr. Bob] ever had. Although arguments have been and will be made for other significant occasions in A.A. history, it is generally agreed that Alcoholics Anonymous began there, in Akron, on that date: June 10, 1935."

And still room to GROW!
If I'm not able to say how I'm working my program today, then I'm not working my program.

Prior to my sobriety date in 2017, I would never have guessed that AA was only around for such a short period of time. The little I knew or heard about it made me for some reason think that it has been around for many generations. I really don't know why.
My parents are both 89 now and it seems odd to me that that have been on the Earth longer than this program. I guess that it is a statement of just how quickly this program has grown.
