Sober for Thirty Years
AS I NOTED in my story, "The Vicious Cycle," in the Big Book, I came into the Fellowship in New York in January 1938. At that time, it was just leaving the Oxford Group. There was one closed discussion meeting a week, at Bill's home in Brooklyn--attendance, six or eight men, with only three members who had been sober more than one year: Bill, Hank, and Fitz. This is about all that had been accomplished in the four years with the New York Oxford Group.
