Welcome to Alcoholics Anonymous

DISCLAIMER – The General Service Board of Alcoholics Anonymous in Ireland wishes to stress that there is no connection between www.alcoholicsanonymous.ie and Social Networking Sites or Social Media Platforms claiming to represent AA.

Difficult times come to us all. We must all help one another. We must stand with one another. We must be understanding of each other's problems. We must share each other's burdens.

PREAMBLE

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.  A.A. 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.

Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety.

The Road Back

Those of us in AA first came to AA because we finally gave up trying to control our drinking. We didn’t want to admit that we could never drink 'safely'.  We decided to try and face up to what alcohol had done to us. Only you can decide if you have a problem with alcohol. Our DVD tells the stories of four people who made that decision. Watch the full DVD online or watch our Irish Sign Language or Subtitle versions.
