“The spark that was to flare
into the first A.A. group
was struck at Akron, Ohio
in June 1935,
during a talk between
a New York stockbroker
and an Akron physician.”

Happy birthday to Alcoholics Anonymous.
For many the history of AA is an integral part of their recovery.
Reading about the trials and tribulations of trying to get a bunch of drunks
to agree on anything gives the reader a fascinating insight
into the thinking of an alcoholic.
Today, if your sobriety is on good spiritual ground,
take a moment to express a bit of gratitude
for those who have gone before us.
Recovery is one day at a time.
Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.
ME and the Boss
And, if no one has told you yet today,
God loves you and so do we.
