This group is for all those that's found a new way of life in the rooms of the Bill Wilson Fellowship, it will also serve as an online portal to share your experience, strength and hope with others with respect to your disease of alcoholism .


We at Friends of Bill W adhere to AA's singleness of Purpose

Our co-founder, Bill Wilson, wrote in a Grapevine article in February 1958:
“Sobriety – freedom from alcohol – through the teaching and practice of the Twelve Steps is the sole purpose of an AA group. We have to confine our membership to alcoholics and we have to confine AA groups to a single purpose. If we don’t stick to these principles we shall almost surely collapse.”

Daily recovery related messages from Bill W, quotes from the AA Big Book and other AA approved literature will be sent to those afflicted with this disease for which there is no known cure.

While our discussions may become passionate and spirited, we expect everyone to help maintain an atmosphere of civility and fellowship.
