Editor's Welcome


Eighty years ago, while writing the Big Book, our cofounder Bill W. took a yellow pad and sat down in his Brooklyn home at 182 Clinton Street and the Twelve Steps we know today were born. In eight decades, untold numbers of hopeless alcoholics’ lives have been transformed. “The truth they contain has saved our lives,” Bill said of the Steps. They have “opened the door to a new world.” Grapevine celebrates this milestone with a special section featuring stories by AA members about the many ways the Twelve Steps have changed their lives.
