On this day (June 10) in 1935, Alcoholics Anonymous was started by Dr. Robert Smith and Bill Watson. Smith, a surgeon, had struggled with his alcoholism for years. Bill Watson had found that trying to help other alcoholics deal with their problem helped him to stay sober. With the help of some of their early members, Smith and Watson developed the famous Twelve Step Program of spiritual and character development.
