What a great day it can be in the struggle to defeat alcoholism and addiction when people learn just how much God has done in this realm that people could not do for themselves. People who wanted God’s help and went to any lengths to get it in early A.A. were cured.

That’s When Early AAs Were Cured and Why. See http://dickb.com/alcoholismcured.shtml

The first three AAs—Bill W., Dr. Bob, and Bill D. all turned to God for help before there were any Steps, any Traditions, any Big Books, any drunkalogs, or any meetings as we know them today. Each of these three A.A. pioneers told his story and also told others that he was cured. See even the latest editions of A.A.’s Big Book—pages 191 and 179-181. The surest statement is that of Bill Wilson himself: “Henrietta, the Lord has cured me of this terrible disease, and I just want to keep talking about it and telling people.” Yes, Bill W., Dr. Bob, and A.A. all were cured. And they said so. So did countless other early AAs all over the United States as scrap books at A.A. World Services, Inc. show. See http://www.dickb.com/cured.shtml.

Those who want deliverance from alcoholism and addiction can still do what the early AAs did. In fact, they can subscribe to the three abc’s of A.A. a) we were alcoholic and could not manage our own lives. b) probably no human power could have relieved us of our alcoholism. c) God could and would if he were sought. And the program by which they did it can be found summarized in DR. BOB and the Good Oldtimers, page 131.

Yes. That’s “When Early AAs Were Cured and Why.” http://dickb.com/alcoholismcured.shtml
