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.

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


First, we try living in the now just in order to stay sober-and it works. Once the idea has become a part of our thinking, we find that living life in 24-hour segments is an effective and satisfying way to handle many other matters as well.
