 Report: Alcoholics Anonymous Co-founder Bill Wilson was a 'sex Addict'

It has emerged that Bill Wilson, the co-founder of Alcoholics Anonymous, was not only a booze addict, but also a sex addict.

In her new book 'Desire', author Susan Cheever daughter of American novelist John Cheever, has revealed, "his desire for women threatened to jeopardize his entire life's work."


Wilson was married to the same woman for 53 years while keeping a mistress and catting around, reports the New York Post.

He had an "inability to regulate his behaviour with women" and was "often accused of groping and unwelcome fondling,"

However, he was able to cover his bad behaviour with the help of grateful members of Alcoholics Anonymous whose lives he'd helped save.
