Top 100 Most Influential People of the 20th Century by Time Magazine?

Did you know that the One Millionth copy of the Big Book was given to then 
President Richard M. Nixon in a white House Ceremony?

The Book was presented to the President by Dr. Jack Norris, a Non-Alcoholic Trustee

It was suggested by friend and AA Member Tom Pike that Nixon apply the 12 steps to 
his life at the time of the Watergate controversy.

The 51st A.A. General Service Conference [at the Crowne Plaza Manhattan, April 22-28, 2000] 
approved the Fourth Edition of the Big Book,' Alcoholics Anonymous.'

About 43% of adults in the US (76 million people) have had a parent, child, 
sibling or spouse who is or was an alcoholic.

An estimated 6.6 million children under the age of 18 years live in households
 with at lease one alcoholic parent.

Two-thirds of the population consumes alcohol, but 10% of drinkers 
drink half of all alcohol consumed

Alcohol contributes to 100,000 deaths annually, making it the third leading
