Was Bill Wilson a womanizer?

Since Bill Wilson was a spiritual teacher (the author of the 12 & 12, it is a valid question to ask. The answer may be found at the following link Bill Wilson When Bill Wilson, with his friend Dr. Bob Smith, founded Alcoholics Anonymous in 1935, his hope was that AA would become a safe haven for those who suffered from this disease. Thirty years after his death, AA continues to help millions of alcoholics recover from what had been commonly regarded as a hopeless addiction. Still, while Wilson was a visionary for millions, he was no saint. After cofounding Alcoholics Anonymous, he stayed sober for over thirty-five years, helping countless thousands rebuild their lives. But at the same time, Wilson suffered form debilitating bouts of clinical depression, was a womanizer, and experimented with LSD. Francis Hartigan, the former secretary and confidant to Wilson's wife, Lois, has exhaustively researched his subject, writing with a complete insider's knowledge. Drawing on extensive interviews with Lois Wilson and scores of early members of AA, he fully explores Wilson's organizational genius, his devotion to the cause, and almost martyr-like selflessness. That Wilson, like all of us, had to struggle with his own personal demons makes this biography all the more moving and inspirational. Hartigan reveals the story of Wilson's life to be as humorous, horrific, and powerful as any of the AA vignettes told daily around the world.

4treacherous, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5 holding to a form of godliness, although they have denied its power; Avoid such men as these. 6For among them are those who enter into households and captivate weak women weighed down with sins, led on by various impulses (2 Timothy 3:5) led on by various impulses, always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth." Why does the big book never mention Jesus except 'the religious people were right"? ANd he says he got a new found 'Friend"...and what is The Power? The Holy Spirit, yet it's never mentioned. That is the anti-Christ. It's a bit of a slippery slope for sure..they even say, "We are not saints" then, what are 'they'?

What Stephen has posted is true, yet for some (maybe a small minority) AA can be a stepping stone to something better.

Thanks 'anonymous'..I' m just very concerned for people still there all this time who will not receive Christ and believe that their own 'good works' and not being an alcoholic somehow saves them from unsaid "Broad Road to happy Destiny". This is some serious stuff...I went there for a while myself so not talking from a vacuum. I got to know folk and silently just disappeared. I got back once a year to get the coin though three years I didn't do that even. There is another line in the big book that reads: But there are those to with grave emotional and mental disorders but they can recover if they have the capacity to be honest"...was Bill even honest? I don't care if satan himself gets one is better to enter into the kingdom of God with your eye plucked out...I did not mean to sound accusatory but concerned..if one reads the big book with a discerning eye and sees the references (e.g.) to 'Light' ,, the LORD is never mentioned. The True Light had come into the world..but the Darkness knows not the Light nor can it comprehend it, ..nor can it. It will not receive Him because their ways are wicked, evil , unjust or more simply "Un Holy"...the word sin is never mentioned either. There is no mention of forgiveness.
