“Wilson moved into
Bob and Anne Smith’s family home.
There both men made plans to take
their message of recovery on the road.
During this period, however,
Smith returned to drinking
while attending a medical convention.
. . .
Wilson spent a month working with Smith,
and Smith became the first alcoholic
Wilson brought to sobriety.
Smith’s last drink was on June 10, 1935
(a beer to steady his hand for surgery),
and this is considered by members
to be the founding date of AA.”
Thank you Bill W. and Dr. Bob
for this simple program
of one alcoholic helping another.
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.
