Movie critic Roger Ebert writes about his 30 years of sobriety and his feelings and observations about the self-help group Alcoholics Anonymous in today’s issue of the Chicago Sun Times. Because he is an excellent journalist, he also links his personal experience of recovery to the portrayal of alcoholics in the movies through the years including "The Lost Weekend," "The Days of Wine and Roses" and "Clean and Sober." He also talks about community, the questions of being a "cult" and The God Word. The readers' comments online are fascinating sharing.
