At the very beginning of the foundation of alcoholism and addiction recovery, there were no phones, there were no apps or social media, there were just a lot of sick people hungry to get better.
They sent letters in the mail, did press releases in the newspaper anonymously, and wrote a book that ended up being the foundation of a new life for the sick and suffering alcoholic and addict.
“Our book is meant to be suggestive only. We realize we know only a little. God will constantly disclose more to you and to us. Ask Him in your morning meditation what you can do each day for the man who is still sick. The answers will come, if your own house is in order. But obviously you cannot transmit something you haven’t got. See to it that your relationship with Him is right, and great events will come to pass for you and countless others. This is the Great Fact for us.” Big Book page 164
