Alcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship of people 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 A.A. membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions. A.A. 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
The purpose of the 12-step program is to recover from compulsive, out-of-control behaviors and restore manageability and order to your life. It's a way of seeing that your behavior is only a symptom, a sort of "check engine" light to investigate what's really going on under the hood. The Steps encourage the practice of honesty, humility, acceptance, courage, compassion, forgiveness and self-discipline—pathways to positive behavioral change, emotional well-being and spiritual growth.
Alcoholics Anonymous is the largest and oldest alcohol support group in the world. The organization is dedicated to helping members overcome alcoholism. Individuals who attend A.A. groups are committed to stop abusing alcohol and remain sober. The meetings offer a multitude of ways to support ongoing recovery. The 12 traditions of A.A. were intended to stabilize the program and keep it free from outside influences. Since the organization is considered a mutual-aid fellowship, it is run by former alcoholics who help those currently in recovery.
