What is Alcoholics Anonymous?

The AA Preamble

Alcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism. The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking. There are no dues or fees for AA membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions. AA is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy, neither endorses nor opposes any causes. Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety.

Is AA for you?

If you seem to be having trouble with your drinking or if your drinking has reached the point where it worries you a bit, you may be interested to know something about Alcoholics Anonymous and the AA programme of recovery.

We only ask that you consider your drinking carefully and keep an open mind. Only you can determine whether or not alcohol has truly become a problem for you. You are welcome to join us at any time or call a fellow on our helpline. Our phone is always answered by someone who has been going through the same questions you have, conserning your drinking habits. AA is a community of more than 2 million people who have put their drinking problems behind them and are leading “normal” day-to-day lives in sobriety.
