'Sober Drunks 9 Show Others Their Method (EDITOR'S NOTE: Bprnusc of rnmniimlly Inlorrst tn thr fellowship of Alcoholics Anonymous mid thr A. A. program. 1hc Tolc- praph hn* srrurcd n serirs of six iirtirip* from A A. Ocn^rnl Srlvirr Ho.Tdqiinrtors In Now York City This is Ihr fiflh article of thr srrjcs, and thr concluding articlr will appear in next Wednesday's isstio i The excessive drinker who swears off alcohol "for life" and (hen falls flat on the barroom floor a few nights later is a pathetic figure in the folklore of many people. For centuries the problem drinker has baffled the best efforts of relatives, friends, doctors and spiritual advisers all devotedly eager to help him, if only they could. During the past 20 years a new phenomenom has appeared in Ihe annals of compulsive drinking. It is the fellowship of al most 150,000 once-hopeless drunks who somehow have achieved and maintained continuing sobriety in an informal society called Alcoholics Anonymous. hat is it that keeps these members of A.A. sober when so pften in the past these same men and women have "gone on the wagon," only to fall off shortly thereafter with a resounding thub? What do they have that the others — who keep bouncing off the "wagon" — seem to lack. What do they have to do to retain their apparently happy sobriety? Men nnd women who have found a new way of life without alcohol in A. A. say that only an alcoholic who has actually achieved recovery through the A. A. program can appreciate fully how it works. The "technique" of staying sober in A. A. is deceptively simple, they say; you just "stay away from the first drink." But how does the "successful" member avoid the kind of relapses he suffered so often in the past? He is still the same person, isn't he? ask the skeptics. Here are some of the answers to this question and to others that might be summed up as "How does the A. A. member stay sober?" WANTS lo Stop Assume that John Doe is a typical problem drinker who has finally come to the end of his rope. He wants to stop drinking. But he has tried to stop time and again, without success. He may be in, his own palatial home or on Skid Row. The circumstances are not important. The crucial thing is that he wants help. He calls the A. A. number in the local newspaper — or writes to A. A.'s General Service Board, Post Office Box 459, Grand Central Annex, New York 17, N. Y. Shortly, one or more visitors appear. They tell John that if he is completely honest in his desire to stop drinking, he can achieve sobriety in A. A. They probably recite some of their own drinking history, which m^y go John's one better. They emphasize that they were once as desperate as he now is, but have attained a sobriety that is far more enjoyable than the life they knew in their drinking days. They assure John that there are no "musts" in A. A. but that if he wants to start sobering up, there is no time like the present. They offer to take him to the the nearest meeting of an A. A. group. John may hesitate but if he really wants to get sober, he soon finds himself in a meet- ing. The people he is introduced to represent a cross section of the community. Snher Drunks He hears two or Ihree speakers and H man or woman who loads the Hireling. He may not grasp all lhat is being said but he gels a definite impression that the speakers once were drunks and no longer drink. He hears what appears to be a number of catchphrases. Afler the meeting, he asks his "sponsor" a question. "What are the Twelve Steps'.'" He learns that the "Twelve Steps," which are "suggested'' only, are simple statements of Ihe actions and menial altitudes •of the early members of A. A. who recorded their personal experience in achieving sobriety years before the society even had a name. The first step, he is told, is the admission that the alcohoijc is powerless over alcohol, that his life has become unmanageable. He can agree with that. His life certainly had not been too manageable. The other steps cover such matters as the alcoholic's being willing to turn his life over to the care of a Power greater than himself— John may protest: "None of that religious stuff for me!" His sponsors explain that A. A. is not a religious program in the denominational sonc.e. God. in A. A., is always God, AS THE ALCOHOLIC UNDERSTANDS HIM. They suggest that alcohol was a power greater than John during the days when he was unable to control it. Doesn't it make sense to depend, not on alcohol, but on some other constructive power that can help him? John may waver. "Then why not consider the local A. A. group your Greater Power? It can help you do what you say you want to do but can't handle yourself — it can help you stop drinking." "What: was this 'Twenty-Four Hour Plan' one of the speakers mentioned?" 24 Hour Plan John's new friends explain that this means the A. A. member doesn't take any pledges, doesn't go on the wagon. He simply applies the proved principle that any drunk can stay away from alcohol for 24 hours at a time. And since nothing can be done about yesterday, and tomorrow never comes, the current 24 hours is all John has to worry about. Does that make sense to him? It does. John remembers many times when he has gone at least 24 hours without a drink. It always seemed to be the worrying about tomorrow that eventually got him drunk. "How about beer? Not even beer for an A. A.? There is no doubt about the answer. No beer. It isn't the form in which the first drink of alcohol is taken, or the quantity, that distinguishes John as an alcoholic, he is told. "Researchers are still trying to find all the answers to the problem of alcoholism but meantime, to the best of medical knowledge, if you are an alcoholic, you simply can't take alcohol in any form," John's friends say. There just is no cure for alcoholism. Like diabetics, alcoholics can live satisfying, productive lives if they follow a few simple precautions. In A. A. the main precaution is to stay away from the first drink. "Then alcoholism is like an illness?" Yes, that's the most workable concept that seems to make sense. The alcoholic is primarily a sick person. "How about those slogans? 'First things first.' 'Live and let live.' 'Easy does it.' Where do they come in?" Slogans Explained They are reminders, suggestions, symbols of the new kind of life the alcoholic can program for himself. "First things first" means that John won't he able to straighten out overnight all the problems created or aggravated by his drinking. He will have to take them one at a time, the most important ones first. "Live and let live" means that the alcoholic must beware of resentments that might disturb him to the point where he might want to try a drink. "Easy does it" is a reminder to relax, not to drive one's self beyond one's capabilities, and to be realistic in setting goals and objectives. It means that John should try to schedule his life a bit, even to the extent of getting adequate rest. "What was that A. A. prayer one of the speakers mentioned?" It is a very brief passage that many A. A. members refer to frequently in time of crisis: "God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference." Try it, the sponsors suggest, it helps. "Do I have to go to a lot of meetings like the one tonight?" No one HAS to do anything in A.A. That goes for the most recent newcomer, like John, or for the oldest old-timer. John is free to drink if he chooses, and if he thinks it will solve anything. He is equally free NOT to drink, and the meetings provide recurring evidence that men and women who no longer want to drink can enjoy a life of sobriety. it's entirely up to John how many meetings he will attend. But "experience shows that the men and women who are regular in their attendance rarely have relapses, or "slips." Those who ^kip too many meetings, particularly in the beginning, do not seem to be quite so lucky. The important thing is that the choice is John's. "Twelfth Step" Work "What is this 'Twelfth Step work' several people talked about?" When two people came to John with the story of A.A., that was "Twelfth Step" work, as phrased in the last of the suggested steps: "Having had a spiritual awakening. . . . we tried to carry this message to alcoholics and practice these principles in all our affairs." It is an important means of strengthening the sobriety of people who may have been in A.A. for many years. And it is the one practical way that the sober person can express his gratitude for the help he once received. Two A.A. groups serve this area. One meets each Tuesday at 8 p.m. at 29 East Broadway, and the other, "Newcomers Group," meets on Wednesdays at 8 p.m. at 75 Lindenwood Dr., East Alton. Members of these groups meet each Monday at 7 p.m. with alcoholic patients at Alton State Hospital. Next Week: The Twelve Traditions" of A.A. Mr. and Mrs. Neal J.

Golden Apples Good Buys Now URBANA — Grimes Golden Apples are moving into Illinois markets, and you will be wise to use them while they are plentiful, says Ross A. Kelly, University of Illinois fruit and vegetable marketing specialist. These apples will be in best supply between now and the holiday season. Grimes Golden apples are rather squat and round in shape. They are good to eat raw, to bake, to use in pies and they are especially good for sauce. By combining apple sauce with other foods and flavorings, you will have a dish with a truly individual personality. A spiced apple sauce may add just, the right touch to a pork roast. Add the juice of one lemon and a sprinkling of cinnamon to your favorite apple sauce recipe, using about six apples. With a young turkey and all the trimmings, you might try an almond apple sauce. Add one- third cup blanched chopped almonds and one-fourth teaspoon cinnamon to an apple sauce recipe calling for six apples. If you're having baked ham for Sunday dinner, you may want to complement it with apple-and-orange sauce. Combine apple sauce (using six apples) with four peeled and cubed oranges. When company comes to dinner, you could top off a hearty meal with a Danish apple sauce dessert. Melt one-half cup butter in sauce-pan. Add one-eighth teaspoon salt, three-fourths cup sugar and fine crumbs from 15 graham crackers. Cook over low heat two or three minutes, stirring constantly. Cool. Sprinkle over individual servings of applesauce or arrange in layers with apple sauce. This makes about six servings. Mr. and Mrs. Robert McCulley of 408 Bender St., East Alton, are parents of a daughter, weighing eight pounds and 13 ounces, The baby was born at 10:38 p.m. Tuesday in St. Joseph's Hospital. Mr. and Mrs. Russell lx?e Sanders, 1068 Tonsor Rd., Alton are announcing the birth of a daughter at 12:38 p.m. Tuesday at Wood River Township Hospital. Express Your Personality In Accessories URBANA — Dare to he different in selecting the accessories you wear with your now fall and winter costume. Express your personality in the things you wear with your dress, suggests Ellen Hanson, University of Illinois clothing and textiles specialist. Fashion leaders dictate the colors and styles for the season, but you put yourself into your costume when you decide what will "go" with your dress. When you shop for your new fall costume, whether you buy it ready-made or make it, consider the new darker colors and how they will enhance your appearance. Decide what accessories you'll use — jewelry, scarves, bat, gloves, handbag and shoes. Then make your choice. These basic considerations will help you decide the exact color and style to bring out your best features. Skillfully combining new, dark colors with jewelry and other accessories to make a complete costume will assure you of being well dressed. You have asserted yourself in your accessories and have put your best-dressed self forward. 150 Couples Attend Kiivanis Ladies Night Kiwanis Ladies Night was a well-attended affair at the Owl's Club on Blair avenue.
