When alcoholic drinking interferes with family get-togethers, office parties, gift exchanges or just the necessities of life, meeting with others dealing with similar situations at local Al-Anon or Alateen meetings can be priceless. To find an Al-Anon meeting, click on the link in our bio. ~

[See "Alcoholics Anonymous," 4th ed. (New York City: Alcoholics Anonymous World Services, Inc., 2001), 62.]

[Thanks to @_ownselfbetrue_ for the inspiration for this post.]
.
"God's help" was why early A.A. succeeded! Note all the references to God, His help, and having a relationship with Him on this one page in the Big Book:
.
"God makes that [i.e., being rid of selfishness] possible."
.
"And there often seems no way of entirely getting rid of self without His aid."
.
"We have to have God's help."
.
"First of all, we had to quit playing God."
.
Next, we decided . . . God was going to be our Director."
.
"He is the Principal; we are His agents."
.
"He is the Father, and we are His children."
.
Becoming a child of God occurs through confessing God's Son Jesus Christ as Lord, and believing in one's heart that God raised His Son Jesus from the dead. (See Rom 10:9, 10; and cp. John 3:16; 1 Cor 15:3-8.)
.
Cebra, Shep, and Rowland--all members of "A First Century Christian Fellowship" (also later known as "the Oxford Group")--had apparently all done that prior to reaching out to Ebby T., A.A. cofounder Bill W.'s "spiritual sponsor."
.
Ebby T. had done that on November 1, 1934, at Calvary Mission.
.
AA Number One, Bill W. had done that about December 8, 1934, at Calvary Mission.
.
A.A. cofounder Dr. Bob (AA Number Two) had apparently done that in conjunction with his "excellent training" in "the Good Book" as a youngster in Vermont.
.
And AA Number Three, Akron attorney Bill D., had apparently done that long before Bill W. and Dr. Bob met him at Akron City Hospital, as Bill D. was already a deacon of his church and a Sunday school teacher.

People often asked me what made me want to get clean young, people say it’s really “cool”. I didn’t get clean young because I thought it was cool, or noble or a nice thing to do. I was sick and tired of being sick and tired. I was talking to a friend the other day and I was thinking about the movie Enough....I was tired of getting my ass kicked. The disease of addiction stole everything I ever cared about, it sabotaged my friendships, it ruined my family life, I can still remember my parents screaming back and forth about what to do with me, I remember being dope sick for days on end wishing I would die, the disease put me in situations that I would never be in naturally, I had guns pulled on me, in crack houses pissing in jars, been jumped by a group of kids that I had robbed, I lost Job after job, kicked out school, I was tired...now, When @jlo was getting her ass beat in the movie Enough and no one could help her you think she just let her ass get kicked again. no. She fucking learned karate and kicked that piece of shit’s ass. That’s what it takes to change your life, you gotta learn karate. You gotta wake up at 5am and go jogging when you don’t want to, you gotta eat the raw egg like rocky, you gotta totally dedicate yourself to preparing for the inevitable, over and over and over again.
