"Alcoholics Anonymous Founded 1935"



On this day in History in New York City, two recovering alcoholics, one a New York stock broker and the other an Ohio physician, founded Alcoholics Anonymous. A.A. is a 12-step rehabilitation program that eventually helps countless people cope with alcoholism. Based on psychological techniques that have long been used in suppressing dangerous personality traits, members of the strictly anonymous organization control their addictions through guided group discussion and confession, reliance on a “Higher Power,” and a gradual return to sobriety. The organization functions through local groups that have no formal rules besides anonymity, no officers, and no dues. Anyone with a drinking problem qualifies for membership. Today, there are more than 80,000 local groups in the United States, with an estimated membership of almost two million people. Other addiction support groups patterned on A.A. include Narcotics Anonymous and Gamblers Anonymous.

Comment ............. Its because of the help I have received from my Higher Power and the people in AA that I have been Sober for 40 years.....

"Home II"



Moving home I have discovered that I am suffering from nostalgia. <<< (Line from a movie) There are so many wonderful memories its hard to describe. The familiarity, the feeling of being warm and comfortable… I am slowly forgetting the misery of my mistake but thinking of it as yet another learning experience.. Every where I go now I seem to recognize people from the past, when I lived here before.. The familiar restaurants and Ice cream shops are still here.. I am relearning the shortcuts and roads the tourists don't know about. Last night we had a 50's dance in the community room.. I had a wonderful time dancing with the girls doing the Twist and Stroll.. Slow dancing with a new friend.. I won't say anymore about that.. It never takes me long, it never has… I'm glad to be home..
