Why do AA'ers celebrate their sobriety date?
from an AA'er:“Well, for someone who was destroying their lives with drugs or alcohol, being clean and sober every passing day just happens to be a big, freaking deal!”
Why are sobriety dates sometimes called birthdays?
from an AA'er: Sobriety birthdays are an event that is nothing like a regular birthday....but rather it's another year of freedom from addiction
Dr. Bobs anniversary date is celebrated in a big way in Ohio.
Why isn't Bill Wilson's sobriety date celebrated? His sobriety birthday? If sobriety birthdays are an event nothing like a regular birthday then why not celebrate Bill W.'s sobriety?
We all know Bill W. was the founder of AA. Dr. Bob was just along for the road-yet Dr. Bob's sobriety birthday is celebrated big time.
What has kept the fellowship of heretics from celebrating Bill W.'s sobriety? Was Bill W. ever sober? I mean if sobriety dates are "big freaking deal".
There must be a reason.
