*What advice do you give new members?

In our experience, the people who recover in A.A. are those who:
  • stay away from the first drink
  • attend A.A. meetings regularly
  • seek out the people in A.A. who have successfully stayed sober for some time
  • try to put into practice the A.A. program of recovery
  • obtain and study the "Big Book": Alcoholics Anonymous

What is 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 AA 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.
