Alcoholics Anonymous was started in 1935 by Bill W. and Dr. Bob S., both alcoholics of the 'hopeless' variety. They discovered through experience, and the help of important non-alcoholic contributors such as Dr. Silkworth and Dr. Carl Jung, that alcoholics have a disease of the mind and body that can not be cured. Bill and Bob found that alcoholics can help each other by sharing their experiences. No form of self knowledge, and few medical treatments will help at all. That's because the disease requires treatment at many levels.
