What is Alcoholics Anonymous?

Visit for a comprehensive list of resources about alcoholism and recovery using the concepts of recovery, spirituality and service in Alcoholics Anonymous


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 membership, we are self supporting through our own contributions.  AA is not affiliated 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.

Twelve Steps

1. We admitted we were powerless over alcohol - that our lives had become unmanageable

2. Came to believe that a power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity

3. Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to God as we understood him

4. Made a searching and fearless moral inventory

5. Admitted to God, to ourselves, and to another person the exact nature of our wrongs

6. Were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character

7. Humbly asked Him to remove our shortcomings

8. Made a list of all persons we had harmed, and became willing to make amends to them all

9. Made direct amends to such persons wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others

10. Continued to take personal inventory, and when we were wrong, promptly admitted it

11. Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God, praying only for knowledge of His will and the power to carry that out

12. Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to alcoholics and practice these principles in all our affairs
