Within days, Wilson admitted himself to the Charles B. Towns Hospital after drinking four beers on the way—the last alcohol he ever drank. Under the care of William Duncan Silkworth an early benefactor of AA , Wilson’s detox included the deliriant belladonna. Wilson’s early efforts to help others become sober were ineffective, prompting Silkworth to suggest that Wilson place less stress on religion and more on “the science” of treating alcoholism. Wilson’s first success came during a business trip to Akron, Ohio, where he was introduced to Robert Smith, a surgeon and Oxford Group member who was unable to stay sober. After thirty days of working with Wilson, Smith drank his last drink on 10 June , the date marked by AA for its anniversaries. AA Historian Ernest Kurtz described the split:

In fact, when she spoke, she often mentioned that others as well as her have noticed that Shea Moisture’s plan to expand was done at the expense and exclusion of a certain population of Black women who made the brand what it is today. She did take up a lot of space, she did admit she was in her feelings, but still a lot of the girls were able to speak. Raven’s girl with the big hoop earrings comment on the red flags she saw was eye-opening. Shea Moisture’s idea of expansion was not experimenting to include all kinds of hair texture, it was part of a greater plan to exclude their original consumer base.
Their plan was to include a wider, whiter consumer base. Uchechi pointed it out when she saw her product for her hair texture 4c used by a White girl with straight hair. But back to Raven’s comment, she pointed out that the commercial had no Black women apart from a face on a tiny box. The representatives of Shea Moisture were white.
The picture of who did their ad campaign had very few Black people. So, it is not a mistake. Shea Moisture has purposely made an effort to let go of their core fanbase.
A History: ’s Word of the Year
The gift of freedom requires the acknowledgment of the benefactor, God. To experience freedom without realizing its source is to miss the point; freedom requires responsibility. When I was drinking, I demanded freedom without responsibility and I suffered. I created in freedom my own horror stories.

His date of sobriety was probably June It is said that he sued to get the money he had loaned A. Harry was probably an accountant. He is believed to be “Fred, a partner in a well known accounting firm” whose story is told on pages 39 through 43 of the Big Book. He was happily married with fine children, sufficient income to indulge his whims and future financial security. He was known as a conservative, sound businessman. To all appearances he was a stable, well-balanced individual, with an attractive personality who made friends easily.
However, he missed going to his office several times because of drinking, and when he failed in efforts to stop on his own, had to be hospitalized — a blow to his ego. At the hospital a doctor told him about a group of men staying sober, and he reluctantly consented to have one of them call on him, only to be polite to the doctor. He refused help from the man who called on him, but within sixty days, after leaving the hospital the second time, he was pounding at his door, willing to do anything to conquer the vicious thing that had conquered him.
He soon learned that not only had his drinking problem been relieved, but quite as important was the discovery that spiritual principles would solve all his problems. While his old way of living was by no means a bad one, he would not go back to it he would not go back to it even if he could. His worst days in the fellowship were better than his best days when he was drinking.
Dating Within The First Year of Recovery
As a movement we are so loosely knit that we are hardly geared to rally behind any outside “cause” or to conduct any “crusades. This, however, is strictly within the family. We are, in effect, asking ourselves to take the 4th and 10th Steps en masse; to take a moral inventory not so much for our individual good but for the good of AA as a whole. It may be the first time many of us have stopped and seriously considered our relation to the group and to the entire body of AA.

It is later than other current posts in the Catholic blogosphere on the crisis-scandal in the Church involving Bishops and priests and their evil sexual behavior with minors and seminarians and probably with each other going back decades, including cover-ups. Seems like every Catholic with a blog has posted on it. That is no matter. What this post as about is on how people will react to the crisis.
Although the thought had never crossed my mind about leaving the Church that Jesus Christ Himself founded, I am aware that the faith of many has been shaken, This bothers me for a number of reasons; for to me, when a person leaves the Catholic Church, it is often because they are unaware of what they are leaving. If you truly understood what the Church is, you would never, ever, consider leaving.
No matter what this Pope or that Bishop or those priests have done. We are all human and have our limits of pain tolerance.

From what I have observed, if you are looking for a quiet life where you can have a family, have a descent job, keep more of your paycheck good pay in Dallas plus no state tax , have lower living expenses no state tax plus way cheaper housing than DC , where you live a quiet simple life going out to dinner, hanging with a few friends, some basic events , etc, then Dallas could be for you. The main adjustment for a single woman your age coming from DC is it is a more simple, family focused city and it is less progressive.
The main issue I have seen AA professional women coming from the Northeast have is the adjustment to having less or no other professional AA colleagues in your corporate environment, less big city cultural activities and the conversations people have are different less political, less entrepreneurial, and more family and job based. But it really depends on what your education, income, social level and environment is like in DC and if you comfortably venture out of your social circles.
You mentioned professional AA men but if you are just as happy and comfortable around regular blue collar or government workers and just want a simple life, Dallas might work well for you. If you are deep into DC and city culture and are surrounded by higher degree, politically aware or cultured DC progressive folk, then the adjustment will be huge and you might find yourself feeling isolated.
The other challenging thing I have witnessed is this: He tends to be open minded and somewhat cultured, he is successful, educated, can put on a suit and have a variety of conversations, eat in various types of restaurants, etc. This is the type of man that a lot of women desire in that area. The Catch 22 is that because so many women desire this type of man and there are more women than men, this type of man does not have to and therefore does not want to settle down quickly.
The average age this type of man in DC gets married for the first time is now almost 40 years old or even older. Women have limited their choices by all hoping for this type of man and he has pick of the litter.
