For Newcomers

We are happy to have you here.

 

If alcohol is causing problems for you in any of the following areas:

  • physical / health
  • mental / emotional/ psychological
  • family / relationships
  • legal
  • spiritual
  • financial

or if you feel like you are losing control of your drinking, Alcoholics Anonymous may be for you. The only requirement for membership in A.A. is a desire to stop drinking. There are no dues or fees of any kind. Our primary purpose is to stay sober ourselves and to help others find contented sobriety.

 

We found that when we finally gave up trying to control our drinking and practiced some basic principles, our lives were forever changed. We joined a worldwide community of people who understood us because they shared our problem. They also shared their experience in practicing the solution – AA’s twelve-step program of recovery. We found freedom and selfespect as we learned to right our lives and to live one day at a time, without drinking. We gained new friendships and found joy in living. If you join us in the fellowship of the spirit, you may be amazed at the transformation that is possible.

If you are new to A.A. we have plenty of information on this site and on other sites that explain what we are about. Our “Is A.A. for you?” page has links to many brochures and resources. We also have a page with a few, general, simple suggestions for those that are interested in more than reading about us.
