Bill's Story

A Quote by Bill on alcoholics anonymous, the big book, recovery, twelve steps, and bills story

"I was aghast.  So that was it__last summer an alcoholic crackpot: now, I suspected, a little cracked about religion.  He had that starry-eyed look. Yes, the old boy was on fire all right, But bless his heart, let him rant!  Besides, my gin would last longer that his preaching."  __Bill Wilson

A Quote by Bill on alcohlics anonymous, the big book recovery, bills story, and twelve step program

"How dark it is before the dawn! In reality, that was the beginning of my last debauch. I was soon to be catapulted into what I like to call the fourth dimension of existence. I was to know happiness, peace, and usefulness, in a way of life that is incredibly more wonderful as time passes." __Bill Wilson

A Quote by Bill on alcoholics anonymous, the big book, recovery, and bills story

" My writhing nerves were stilled at last. A morning paper told me the market had gone to hell again. Well, so had I. The market would recover, but I wouldn't. That was a hard thought. Should I kill myself? No--not now. Then a mental fog settled down. Gin would fix that. So two bottles, and--oblivion."
