“Admitted to God, to ourselves, and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.”
Hi my name is Liz and I’m an alcoholic. First of all, I’d like to say that I’m truly grateful for finding the rooms of Alcoholics Anonymous. Only God knows where I would be right now if it wasn’t for the rooms and the wonderful fellowship of men and women I was blessed to come across. My sobriety date is February 26, 2015, my sponsor’s name is
Erin, and she has a sponsor who has a sponsor as well. The reason I mention this is because it is extremely important that when you come in you get yourself a sponsor who can walk you through the 12 steps.
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.
Before there was a "Big Book", Twelve Steps, Twelve Traditions, the "AA Grapevine" or General Service -- before there were meetings, clubs, conventions or any AA literature -- before there was an H&I committee, there was a visit to an Akron hospital where "one drunk talked to another."
