In this month’s Discover AA post we take a closer look at our cofounder, Dr. Bob. Dr. Bob had been struggling to achieve sobriety for some time before meeting Bill. It was because of a chance meeting with Bill W. in May 1935 that Dr. Bob finally managed to achieve long term sobriety, a sobriety which lasted right up to his death in November 1950.
