Ursprünglich 1939 in den USA als ‚Alcoholics Anonymous‘ erschienen, wurde der Titel auch zum Namensgeber für die Gemeinschaft ‚Anonyme Alkoholiker‘. Zu diesem Zeitpunkt umfasste die AA-Gemeinschaft 100 Mitglieder. Dieser Band hat dazu beigetragen, dass jetzt weltweit über 2 Millionen sagen, dass sie AA-Mitglied sind. In vier Auflagen haben seither mehr als 30 Millionen Exemplare des ‚Big Book‘ ihre Leser gefunden. 1963 erschien die deutsche Erstausgabe unter dem Titel ‚Anonyme Alkoholiker‘, bekannt als ‚Blaues Buch’ – nach der Farbe des Einbands. Mehrere Auflagen sind inzwischen erschienen. Der Basistext auf den Seiten 1-192 blieb als Fundament der Genesung für die Anonymen Alkoholiker bis heute unverändert. Die Geschichten der ‚Pioniere von AA‘ verbinden den Leser mit den historischen Wurzeln der AA-Gemeinschaft und zeigen zusammen mit den 2009 neu eingefügten zeitnahen deutschsprachigen Lebensgeschichten, wie Alkoholiker noch heute mithilfe des vorgeschlagenen Genesungsprogramms nüchtern werden. Diese vorliegende revidierte Auflage 2016 entspricht der aktuellen amerikanischen Ausgabe. Dies ist die einzige von ‚A.A. World Services, Inc.‘ autorisierte E-Book-Version des Buches ‚Anonyme Alkoholiker‘.

Research on Alcoholics Anonymous and Spirituality in Addiction Recovery

Genre: Medical

It was once taken for granted that peer-assisted groups such as Alcoholics Anonymous had no “real” value in recovery from addiction. More recently, evidence-based medicine is recognizing a spiritual component in healing—especially when it comes to addiction. The newest edition of Recent Developments in Alcoholism reflects this change by focusing on the 12-step model of recovery as well as mindfulness meditation and other spiritually oriented activity. More than thirty contributors bring together historical background, research findings, and clinical wisdom to analyze the compatibility of professional treatment and nonprofessional support, day-to-day concepts of relapse prevention, the value of community building in recovery, and much more. Among the topics covered: (1) How and why 12-step groups work. (2) The impact of the spiritual on mainstream treatment. (3) The impact of AA on other nonprofessional recovery programs. (4) AA outcomes for special populations. (5) Facilitating involvement in 12-step programs. (6) Methods for measuring religiousness and spirituality in alcohol research. Whether one is referring clients to 12-step programs or seeking to better understand the process, this is a unique resource for clinicians and social workers. Developmental psychologists, too, will find Volume 18—Research on Alcoholics Anonymous and Spirituality in Addiction Recovery a worthy successor to the series.

Genre: Religion

Pioneer Stories in Alcoholics Anonymous: God's Role in Recovery Confirmed! by Dick B. and Ken B. presents many quotations from the 29 personal stories included in the first edition of Alcoholics Anonymous.

Alcoholics Anonymous

Author: Bill W.
Publisher: Courier Dover Publications
ISBN: 9780486834177
Release Date: 2019-03-20
Genre: Self-Help

Many thousands have benefited from "The Big Book" and its simple but profound explanation of the doctrines behind Alcoholics Anonymous, which was founded in 1935 by Bill Wilson and Dr. Bob Smith. This original 1939 edition outlines the famous 12 steps, and offers counsel for those who wish to join the program but doubt the existence of a higher power. It also contains encouraging personal stories, in which AA members relate their experiences with alcohol and how they found the path to sobriety. "The Big Book" has gone through numerous editions and remains the most widely used resource for recovering alcoholics. Only this original 1939 edition includes all 29 stories of the program's pioneers, which share the details of their full journey, including initial recovery, sometimes followed by relapse and eventual success. This edition also features the key to the solution claimed by Bill Wilson: a vital spiritual experience that allows followers to rediscover, or discover, God. This realistic portrayal of the program as offered by its founders has been lost in subsequent editions of the work, and is presented here to serve as a reminder that success comes in many forms.

Storytelling in Alcoholics Anonymous

Author: George H. Jensen
Publisher: SIU Press
ISBN: 0809323303
Release Date: 2000
Genre: Language Arts & Disciplines

"Jensen covers Bakhtin's theory of the relationship between the author and the hero of a text, using Lillian Roth's autobiographies as counterexamples of AA talks. He discusses "rigorous honesty" within AA programs and provides a detailed analysis of the rhetorical act of stating "I am an alcoholic" in the context of an AA meeting. He devotes an entire chapter to explaining how AA meetings provide an example of what Bakhtin meant by carnival, a process through which humor, irony, and parody supply a mechanism for questioning commonly held beliefs. He shows how newcomers to AA move away from their egocentric personae as practicing alcoholics to adopt a new identity within AA. Turning back to Bakhtin, he describes the moments of discourse during which individuals confess past wrongs to God and to another person. Drawing further on Bakhtin, he examines the autobiographical moments of AA talks, stressing that these moments never become fully autobiographical.

Release Date: 2000
Genre: Social Science

A historical and comparative analysis of the Icelandic AA movement which seeks to explain its particular, and widespread success in Iceland despite formidable obstacles and paradoxical conditions. Not only is anonymity, one of AA's basic organizational principles, impossible in a society as small as Iceland, but the country's strong alcoholism treatment system has required a rethinking of AA's role, a move from being a central dynamic force in getting sober to an interactive supporting force in staying sober. Among the topics discussed in this book are the history, structure and transformation of the movement in Iceland, ad its relations and interactions with other groups, treatment programs and society as a whole.

A Biography of Mrs Marty Mann

Author: Sally Brown
Publisher: Simon and Schuster
ISBN: 9781616491413
Release Date: 2011-06-02
Genre: Biography & Autobiography

Marty Mann was the first woman to achieve long-term sobriety in Alcoholics Anonymous, and she inspired thousands of others, especially women, to help themselves. The little-known life of Marty Mann rivals a Masterpiece Theatre drama. She was born into a life of wealth and privilege, sank to the lowest depths of poverty and despair, then rose to inspire thousands of others, especially women, to help themselves. The first woman to achieve long-term sobriety in Alcoholics Anonymous, Marty Mann advocated the understanding that alcoholism is an issue of public health, not morality. In their fascinating book, Sally and David Brown shed light on this influential figure in recovery history. Born in Chicago in 1905, Marty was favored with beauty, brains, charisma, phenomenal energy, and a powerful will. She could also out drink anyone in her group of social elites. When her father became penniless, she was forced into work, landed a lucrative public relations position, and a decade later was destitute because of her drinking. She was committed to a psychiatric center in 1938-a time when the term alcoholism was virtually unknown, the only known treatment was "drying out," and two men were compiling the book Alcoholics Anonymous. Marty read it on the recommendation of psychiatrist Dr. Harry Tiebout: it was her first step toward sobriety and a long, illustrious career as founder of the National Council on Alcoholism, or NCA.In the early 1950s, journalist Edward R. Murrow selected Marty as one of the 10 greatest living Americans. Marty died of a stroke in 1980, shortly after addressing the AA international convention in New Orleans.This is a story of one woman's indefatigable effort and indomitable spirit, compellingly told by Sally and David Brown.
