December 11th 1934

85 years ago today Bill W. took his last drink on his way to Towns Hospital on Central Park West in New York City for his final treatment for alcoholism. He would come to have a spiritual experience at Towns while undergoing treatment with Dr. Silkworth. The experience contributed to Bill co-founding A.A. in 1935 and staying sober until his death in 1971.

    There is a very good movie about Bill starring James Woods.”My name is Bill W.” I assume you have seen it.

    Nice to see you post again, Barbara. Happy Holidays!

      Hi Al
      Good to hear from you too!
      I actually posted this on the wrong blog, but then decided to leave it anyway as it’s interesting!!
      I agree, the film My name is Bill W is really good!
      I’ll send you the address of my other blog when I can find it (clearly I’m out of practice at this & not good at blogging on my mobile 😂😂)
      Catch up soon!
      Barbara
