Alcoholics Anonymous
ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS (AA) is an international mutual aid fellowship founded in 1935 by Bill Wilson and Dr. Bob Smith in Akron, Ohio
Akron, Ohio
. AA's stated "primary purpose" is to help alcoholics "stay sober and help other alcoholics achieve sobriety ". With other early members, Bill Wilson and Bob Smith developed AA's Twelve Step program of spiritual and character development. AA's initial Twelve Traditions were introduced in 1946 to help the fellowship be stable and unified while disengaged from "outside issues" and influences. The Traditions recommend that members remain anonymous in public media, altruistically help other alcoholics, and that AA groups avoid official affiliations with other organizations. They also advise against dogma and coercive hierarchies

William Griffith Wilson
WILLIAM GRIFFITH WILSON (November 26, 1895 – January 24, 1971), also known as BILL WILSON or BILL W., was the co-founder of Alcoholics Anonymous (AA), an international mutual aid fellowship with over twenty million members worldwide belonging to approximately 10,000 groups, associations, organizations, cooperatives, and fellowships of alcoholics helping other alcoholics achieve and maintain sobriety .
