Alcoholics Anonymous®

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.

About AA Meetings

Meetings

Meeting Formats

An A.A. meeting may take one of several forms, but at any meeting you will find alcoholics talking about what drinking did to their lives and personalities, what actions they took to help themselves, and how they are living their lives today.

Anonymity

No membership files or attendance records are kept, although some meetings have completely optional phone lists. You do not have to reveal anything about yourself. No one will bother you if you don’t want to come back. If you happen to meet people you know at a meeting, they will be there for the same reason you are. They will not disclose your identity to others and you will retain as much anonymity as you wish – this is one reason we call ourselves Alcoholics Anonymous®.

No Dues or Fees

There are no dues or fees for A.A. membership. Groups usually take a voluntary collection during the meeting to cover the meeting expenses and members contribute as they are able to.
