There is a solution. You no longer have to live like this. You are not alone. You are not the first. If you think you have a drinking problem, and are looking to get to a meeting of alcoholics anonymous, we hope that this website will help you.

No one can tell you that you are an alcoholic. People may point out indications that you have a drinking problem -- loss of control, drunken driving, arrests, lost jobs, broken marriages or relationships, blackouts, the shakes, etc. Only you can decide if youare actually an alcoholic, then we invite you to keep coming back.

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 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.
