Here’s The History of A.A. Message Introduction We Presented Today


Tis the season to get serious, to get informed, to help others with the rest of the A.A. story. A.A. really came from a rich history--founded much on the early lives and learning of the first three AAs and particularly its cofounders Bill W. and Dr. Bob.

24 years of research, and thousands of phone calls, website visits, emails and personal visits have made clear the hunger of two groups—the searching old-timers, and the hungry newcomers--for the real history--the rest of the story about A.A.

Books have not cut it. Articles have not cut it. Films about Bill W., videos and films about Bill and Dr. Bob; plays about the two founders--even the secluded gatherings of archivists and history buffs have still left the gaping hole. It can and will only be filled by facts—not the exchange of opinions.

Tonight we will just brush up a preview of the latest segments of our 6 or 8 videos and accompanying guidebook on “Bill W., Dr. Bob, and the Cure of Alcoholism: The Rest of the Story.”

This preview is just one part, but it's the one that will emerge on video in just a few weeks. The part we will preview for you on radio today is the Vermont roots, the evangelists, the YMCA, the rescue missions, Christian Endeavor, and the Yale Lectures of 1945 that make the message so important.

Our history was hardly about a higher power of light bulbs. It was a history of how early AAs got sober based on years of successful prior heritage.

That heritage helped me. It can help you. Help you get sober. Help you enjoy recovery—just as the early pioneers enjoyed it in their sobriety. Help you draw near to God if you want to be in fellowship with Him, His Son, and others who believe in and want to have His help. And provide you with the facts to do likewise. If others could and did do it, so can you!
