The Preamble | Alcoholics Anonymous Edinburgh & Midlothian

The Preamble

Alcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship of people 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 selfsupporting through our own contributions. A.A. is not allied 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.

AA Edinburgh and Midlothian is committed to providing safe venues for our meetings. We encourage group members to help keep AA safe by taking sensible precautions, both with personal belongings and by being mindful about giving out personal information.
