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.

and The Twelve Traditions

Service gladly rendered, obligations squarely met, troubles well accepted or solved with God’s help, the knowledge that at home or in the world outside we are partners in a common effort, the well-understood fact that in God’s sight all human beings are important, the proof that love freely given surely brings a full return, the certainty that we are no longer isolated and alone in self-constructed prisons, the surety that we need no longer be square pegs in round holes but can fit and belong in God’s scheme of things--these are the permanent and legitimate satisfactions of right living for which no amount of pomp and circumstance, no heap of material possessions, could possibly be substitutes.  (Bill W. - The "12x12")

Is A.A. For You?  (Click on the text to read the pamphlet)

We who are in A.A. came because we finally gave up trying to control our drinking.  We still hated to admit that we could never drink safely.  Then we heard from other A.A. members that we were sick.  (We thought so for years!)  We found out that many people suffered from the same feelings of guilt and loneliness and hopelessness that we did.  We found out that we had these feelings because we had the disease of alcoholism.

We decided to try and face up to what alcohol had done to us.  Here are some of the questions we tried to answer honestly.  If we answered YES to four or more questions, we were in deep trouble with our drinking.  See how you do.  Remember, there is no disgrace in facing up to the fact that you have a problem.

A Newcomer Asks  (Click on the text read the pamphlet)

Am I an alcoholic? If you repeatedly drink more than you intend or want to, if you get into trouble, or if you have memory lapses when you drink, you may be an alcoholic.  Only you can decide.  No one in A.A. will tell you whether you are or not.

Do You Think You're Different?  (Click on the text to read the pamphlet)

"A.A. won't work for me. I'm too far gone."  "It's nice for those people, but I'm president of the P.T.A."  I'm too old.  Too young.  Not religious enough.  I'm gay.  Or Jewish.  A professional person.  A member of the clergy.  Too smart.  Or too uneducated.

At this moment, people all over the world are thinking that A.A. probably won't work in their case for one or several of these reasons.  Perhaps you are one of these people.

We in A.A. believe alcoholism is a disease that is no respecter of age, sex, creed, race, wealth, occupation, or education.  It strikes at random.  Our experience seems to show that anyone can be an alcoholic.  And, beyond question, anyone who wants to stop drinking is welcome in A.A.
