Summary
""Show me a drunk and I'll show you someone in search of God"", is a saying that could be derived from Carl Jung. Jung wrote to Bill Wilson, founder of Alcoholics Anonymous (A.A.), about his understanding of Rowland Hazard's alcoholism: ""His craving for alcohol was the equivalent, on a low level, of the spiritual thirst of our being for wholeness, expressed in medieval language: the union with God"". This book marries the writings of Carl Jung and Bill Wilson, and develops the idea that alcoholism is, primarily, a spiritual illness.The author visited the archives of the headquarters of A.A
