Stick with the Winners! In A.A., Who are They?

Here’s a Winner – Dr. Bob, Cofounder of Alcoholics Anonymous


In his last major talk to AAs, Bill Wilson said this:


It had been decided that Bob would attend mostly to the questions of hospitalization and the development of our Twelfth Step work.


Between 1940 and 1950, in the company of that marvelous nun, Sister Ignatia, he had treated 5,000 drunks at St. Thomas Hospital in Akron.


His spiritual example was a powerful influence, and a never charged a cent for his medical care.


So Dr. Bob became the prince of all twelfth-steppers. Perhaps nobody will ever do such a job again.
