Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) 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.
Here are some common meeting formats:
Members share their story and journey of “What it was like, what happened, and what it is like now.”
Discussion meetings typically focus on either specific literature (The Big Book of AA or the Twelve steps and Twelve Traditions) or topics suggested by members in attendance. Generally, you are free to share whatever is on your mind, so long as it pertains to alcoholism.
An open meeting can be a speaker meeting or a discussion meeting. It simply means that anyone is welcome – alcoholic or not.
A closed meetings can also be a speaker or discussion meeting. However, it is intended for members of Alcoholics Anonymous – for those with a desire to stop drinking.
