I Need Help

If you want to Drink that’s your business.

If you want to stop that’s ours..

I Need Help

Have a problem?

There is a solution. A.A. has a simple program that works. It’s based on one alcoholic helping another.

I Need Help

Find a Meeting

Helping alcoholics to

achieve sobriety

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 A.A. membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions.

AA is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organisation or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy; neither endorses nor opposes any causes.

Daily Reflections


Gratitude should go forward, rather than backward.

I Need Help
If you think you have a problem with drinking, we're here to help.
I’m worried about someone else’s drinking

Information for Professionals
A.A. members are available to provide professionals with information about Alcoholics Anonymous
Is A.A. for you?
Only you can decide whether you want to give A.A. a try - whether you think it can help you.
