What is Alcoholics Anonymous?

 AA is a Fellowship of men and women who share the 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. We do not ask a prospective member any personal questions about their status or background, nor do we keep any records.

There are no dues or fees for AA membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions. We DO NOT accept money from any source outside AA.

AA is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution. We cooperate with organisations that work toward helping alcoholics recover, but we do not affiliate with them in any way.

AA does not wish to engage in any controversy; neither endorses nor opposes any causes. ‘The best defence is no defence’.

Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety.
