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 AA 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 not opposes any causes.
Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety.
Do you have a partner, relative or friend with a drinking problem?
For every person who misuses alcohol it is estimated that at least 5 other people are affected. These include partners, parents, children and friends.
It can be very difficult for family members to live with and care about a person who misuses alcohol, without sacrificing their own health and happiness.
However, this does not mean that the situation is hopeless. Family members and friends of alcoholics can get help for themselves. Please press the button “Al-Anon” for further information.
