Le rire en trois dimensions chez les anciens alcooliques du mouvement Vie libre

Abstract : Three dimensions laughter among the ex-alcoholics of Vie libre
The study of an association of ex-drinkers such as Vie libre (Free life) leads to notice the importance of laughter and joke related to alcohol during their meetings. Beyond the therapeutic function of laughter, that Anglo-Saxon authors have stressed concerning the Alcoholics Anonymous, and for whom it allows to de-dramatize the situation, laughter has, at Vie libre, other dimensions, and jokes there obey diverse logical structures. By examining the circumstances in which joke is used to release laughter, the author puts into light the diverse registers of laughter that prevails here, while underlying the difficulties linked to its use in this particular socio-cultural context.
