Newcomers to AA
If you think you have a problem with drinking, we’re here to help.
If you seem to be having trouble with your drinking, or if your drinking has reached the point of where it worries you, you may be interested to know something about Alcoholics Anonymous and the A.A. programme of recovery from alcoholism. After reading this brief outline you may decide that A.A. has nothing to offer you.
Should this be the case, we suggest only that you keep an open mind on the subject. Consider your drinking carefully in the light of what you learn from this website.

Determine for yourself whether or not alcohol has truly become a problem for you. And remember that you will always be most welcome to join the thousands of men and women in A.A. who have put their drinking problems behind them and now lead “normal” lives of constructive, day by day sobriety.
