Bill Wilson, co-founder of Alcoholics Anonymous, was no saint. But he realized that, if he wanted to stay sober, he needed to talk to another alcoholic. What he decides to do about it, as depicted in this scene from the 1989 movie, “My Name is Bill W.,” is the reason AA exists today. (spoiler alert) He is away from home on a difficult business trip, under stress, with time on his hands waiting to learn the outcome of his business matter, and temptation sets in. Of course there was no AA. So he makes it his business to search out and find another alcoholic to talk to, and AA is born. Alcoholics all over the world thank you for this moment, Bill. The alcoholic he finds is co-founder Dr. Bob Smith, played by James Garner in the movie.
