The occasion was his 34th Anniversary of Sobriety in Alcoholics Anonymous. Bill gets a huge round of applause after being introduced. Bill speaks for just a short time before introducing Lois. She tells of a talk she gave 17 years ago and that that time Bill had been sober for 17 years and because he had drank for 17 years she considered them “even.” Now he’s got 17 more years. She is obviously very grateful. Bill then begins his own talk by saying that he wants to talk about the “Spiritual Experience” and will share a succession of short stories. Bill tells of many people he knew that said the program is working well but as far as the spiritual connection goes, we just “Isn't got the spiritual angle.” He tells of a young fellow who had been in the program for a few years. He had been having trouble with spirituality. He stood up one day and proclaimed that the radiator in the corner “Is My Higher Power.” Bill goes on to tell several stories of spiritual experiences and then he comes to Dr Bob. He gives a lot of credit to the woman that set up the meeting between them and then he introduces Henrietta Sieberling sitting in the audience. She stands up to a big round of applause. Bill says that when he met Dr Bob, he had found in him, a man that was very spiritual despite his drinking. In Dr Bob’s case his craving for alcohol was not lifted for about 2 ½ years later. Near the end of his talk, Bill says he feels at peace because he is very confident that “The candle of spirituality will be passed on and on, from hand to hand, from one generation to the next.” Inspiring. ]]> Sat, 13 Feb 2016 16:20:13 -0500 <![CDATA[Dr Bobs Son Smitty + Seacy Willis 2000 Spirit Of Houston -- $6.99]]> Dr Bobs Son Smitty + Seacy Willis 2000 Spirit Of Houston  AA Old-timer Searcy who passed away a while back with well over 50 Years of Sobriety, and Dr Bobs Son Smitty at Spirit of Houston November 11, 2000.

In this talk he tells the audience how the story got written and included in the then new 3rd edition of the Big Book. The editors removal of the word ALANONISM. Tells several very funny stories about ALANON (these are anything but mean spirited; prior to his death several years ago Dr. Paul was an active member and participant in the ALANON program alongside his wife. He was according to the ALANON term a double winner). Talks about the power of the AA program by telling the story of his own introduction into the program by a non alcoholic Psychiatrist who attended just two meetings during schooling. The effects of this was great and it's benefit reached many people. Another story also highlights the power of a single AA meeting. Talks about the disease Alcoholism. His Sponsor Acceptance Ends the talk by talking about enjoying life. Often humorous and always interesting one of the best talks by Dr. Paul O that I have heard. There is a comment about the size of the audience which is also very enthusiastic. A spirited talk in an electric atmosphere. He doesn't only talk about his drinking and drug use. He talks about the concept of acceptance, and living life in sobriety. He tells some sobriety stories about getting and then living sober. A lot of good practical advice about livening a sober life of recovery.

 Clarence's Sobriety Date is February 11,1938 Opens with congratulations for starting new club. Jokes about AA unity; how "riots" spread AA by starting new groups. Talks about his age compared to other early AAs. He got sober at 35 years of age. All the others were 45 plus. He tells his age as 79 at that time which would make the others pretty old.
A very spirited and fast moving talk he tells his own story, talks about all twelve of the steps and how he shares them with others, and tells a good bit of the history of AA. Over an hour long but very interesting. Holds the listeners attention easily. Talks about the Oxford group, and how the break from them was precipitated in response to newly sober Catholics from Cleveland whom he was working with being forbidden from attending a protestant religious meeting. How he caused an uproar by declaring in an Oxford group meeting that the alcoholic contingent would no longer be coming to Akron, and that they would be meeting as Alcoholics Anonymous at a home in Cleveland. Tells "RUMMY STORIES FROM THE BIBLE". Noah definitely was an alcoholic. He talks about his methods of helping people often telling how Dr.Bob (his Sponsor) worked with him. He talks about his experiences in the hospital under Dr. Bobs care. How the 14 Alcoholics who came before him visited him. How he took step three with Dr. Bob. He goes through each of the steps sharing experiences, dispelling errors, and talking about how the steps are properly taken. He talks about "Alcoholics area breed of cats apart from all others". The characteristics of alcoholics and the special abilities of alcoholics. Ends the talk by telling the audience to enjoy life as he does. Very upbeat and spirited even his criticisms are enjoyable.

 Earl Hightower
of Studio City, CA
14 Tracks 63 Minutes
A Really great topic talk. Earl begins by reading parts of page 84 and 85 of the Big Book which is where Step 10 is discussed.
His talk is really about developing a way of life that is fundamentally different from what he had when active.
He points out that he was a fear driven human being and because of this love tolerance and the way of life described in pages 84 and 85 was alien to him.
He talks about the process of growth that changed him from entirely fear driven and selfish to somewhat loving and helpful.
It began with his sponsor prodding him into his first AA friendship,
and continues to this day with him taking an active part in peoples lives by practicing the steps and participating in AA activities.

They respond enthusiastically that he can. ~ Relates that his mind is the worst enemy he has in sobriety. ~ Explains that there is a difference between the mind and the soul.

Earl Hightower is a great topics speaker. A topic talk by Earl is totally different from his story.
He barely mentions stuff he usually talks about and tells all new stories and talks about all new stuff.
He starts out the relationships talk by talking about them in a general way.
He points out that for a long time he thought he had to work on his "picker" that his big problem was not picking the right ones.
In time he found out that to make relationships work he had to work on himself.
He had to work on what kept him from having serene relations with himself, God and others.
He talks about those three areas for the rest of the talk.
Tells things that happened, stuff he did, and what he learned as he improved.
A really good talk lots of "Rule 62" good hearted humour and identification.

His work with alcoholics in his "Court Class". Ray Harrison became a judge and probated alcoholic offenders into a program for Alcoholics who didn't or wouldn't fit in with the AA of the time. Many enjoyed great success and he presents this rather humorously. He had their permission to show their mug shot and then a picture taken voluntarily months of sobriety later. An extraordinary man with a fantastic and enjoyable message. Wrote highly collectable AA book CLANCY GOT SOBER Ray was a personal friend of Bill Wilson. Bill even traveled to Iowa to attend the anniversary celebration for Ray in 1948. A very upbeat message delivered to an enthusiastic crowd of AAs.

She talks about it in this recording. She worked in a building in which Dr Bob had his office, and she was an eyewitness to the suffering his alcoholism caused him. She was also helped by him in her early sobriety and recalls his steadfastness and dedication to AA in the final years of his life. She tells her recovery story. How she began drinking, how it progressed, and the bottom she reached. She also talks about living sober, learning to get rid of resentments and how she lived the AA way of life. This is a very well told AA recovery story. Anne C. is quoted in DR BOB AND THE GOOD OLDTIMERS 3 times(one is on page 33). A Very Good Talk by someone who knew Sister Ignatia, Bill Dotson, Bill Wilson and Ethel Macy. This CD was made from a 1970s Era Reel to Reel tape which was probably made by the person who taped the event. The sound quality is very good.

Many other accomplishments including over 41 years of sobriety before passing from this life sober in the early 1980s.
This recording is nearly 80 minutes long. In it she tells her story in considerable detail and talks about living life as a sober alcoholic. Her story is inspiring and her sharing is very informative. She is a recognized expert on alcoholism but she knew allot about sobriety also. During the last part of this recording she talks about sobriety. Her own and that of the countless other alcoholics her fruitful life was intertwined with. She knew Bill and Lois Wilson well and is universally considered an AA pioneer.
One of her best talks this CD is an excellent opportunity to learn more about Alcoholism, sobriety, AA history, and this remarkable woman. ]]>

Dave explains that the point of his workshop will be "How to Be Happy?.
He uses a whole bunch of really great quotes.
One was so good I bookmarked it with a track. at the start of Track 6 of the Cd Dave Quotes George Bernard Shaw"This is the true joy of life; the being used up for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one.Being a force of nature rather than a feverish selfish little clot of ailments and grievences complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy."

 CLARENCE SNYDER Very Early AA Member

1963 BLACKSTONE RETREAT TALK
Sponsee of Dr Bob ~ Spread Early AA to Cleveland
April 1963 at Blackstone Virginia
19 Tracks 77 Minutes

CLARENCE SNYDER formed first AA group in Cleveland, OHIO 1939.
He was sponsored by Dr. Bob, and he tells how Dr. Bob Twelfth stepped him in Akron city Hospital.
This is a very early (1/1/1963) example of a CLARANCE SNYDER talk.
He tells his story and then talks about the steps.
He opens with a very funny drunk joke that I was surprised that I hadn't heard.
Clarence tells his own story. His drinking and how he came in contact with his sponsor Dr. Bob.
He talks about his early sobriety some of which qualifies as AA history. How the Cleveland contingent of the Akron OXFORD GROUP broke away because of it's many Catholic members and the need for a group made up solely of Alcoholics and their families.
He talks about the steps expounding his straightforward and practical approach. This is purely inference but this can be supposed to be the interpretation Dr. Bob shared with him.
Clarence has a confident sureness and direct approach to things. DO IT AND MOVE ON TO THE NEXT THING. DON"T EVADE THE HEART OF THE MATTER. THERE ARE THINGS BEST NOT WATERED DOWN. these are not quotes but they summarize what I gather from Clearances direct approach and unflinching style. I like his style.
Informative, enjoyable and capable of holding a listeners keen interest.
He has an honest and straightforward way of clearing up and expressing his opinion of misconceptions that have crept into the fellowship. ~ A GREAT TALK BY CLARENCE VERY HISTORICALLY SIGNIFICANT

Bobby C  was a Philadelphia city cop who got sober in Alcoholics Anonymous. He is a storyteller. His AA message is a succession of stories covering various phases of his life both drunk and sober. His life as an active Alcoholic and policeman. His descent into Alcoholism and then at the end Drug Addiction also. His Recovery from Alcoholism and the slow process of being restored to sanity. Crazy experiences in early sobriety. How thru the 12 Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous he became relatively happy and sane.

Also Bobby C of Philadelphia, PA at 2009 Bellevue, NE Group Anniversary January 31, 2009. Bobby C has a really good message. Here is a real alcoholic who had all sorts of alcoholic jackpots and adventures but always had a job. His first Alcoholic drinking was after a few of his fellow soldiers were killed in combat. He becomes a Philadelphia police officer after the service and has lots of adventures as a cop who is also a drunk. He finally gets sober and a long recovery process begins. It took along time because he would not follow suggestions and do the steps. After a few years of dry insanity he does the steps. He actually talks about each of the steps and the concludes his talk discussing his life after taking the steps. A really good talk. Some very funny parts. ]]>
