"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."

Congratulations clouds! Thanks for all you do for us and for the alcoholic who still suffers.

And thank goodness for Bill & Bob, who followed their innermost-selves and that their journey led to the meetings, the people & the Big Book that saved my life.
