Années 1940 : réunion de proches d'alcooliques à domicile

“The wives’ group just kind of evolved – there was nothing really planned about it. At that time, to the best of our knowledge, there was no group anywhere for the [non-alcoholics] of the family. The men would drop their wives off at our place, just for company, and the conversation most naturally was about our men, their problems with the bottle, and all that went with it. We gradually found ourselves awakening to the fact that WE had problems, too. So we decided to have our own meeting every week. We . . . used the A. A.. 12 Steps for ourselves – just changing that 1st step. We had to admit we were powerless over an alcoholic! At that time, our group was known as Triple A – Alcoholics Anonymous Auxiliary.”
