Happy 70th Anniversary
June 10, 2005 marks the 70th Anniversary of the founding of Alcoholics Anonymous. When my first marriage was going to Hell in 1976, AA and its sister group AlAnon (for families of alcoholics) saved my life--certainly figuratively if not literally. AlAnon helped me through two difficult years, and I was very impressed with the selfless devotion members of both groups had towards helping others in similar circumstances. If there is a better, more effective self-help group than AA, I don't know about it.
