Welcome to Alcoholics Anonymous
Central Service Office

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.

Around The Coffee Pot...

17. Unchangeable. We try never to lose sight of the unchangeable fact of our alcoholism, but we learn not to brood or feel sorry for ourselves or talk about it all the time. We accept it as a characteristic of our body -- like our height or our need for glasses, or like any allergies we may have. Then we can figure out how to live comfortably -- not bitterly -- with that knowledge as long as we start out by simply avoiding that first drink (remember?) just for today. Thought to Ponder . . . There is only one corner of the universe I can be certain of improving, and that's my own self.
