Information for Anyone New Coming to A.A. AND for Anyone Referring People to AA:

-->Information on Alcoholics Anonymous
-->What is A.A.?


Can A.A. help me stop drinking? In this video, members explain how Alcoholics Anonymous works and what to expect in meetings. Learn about sponsorship and home groups, and how the Twelve Steps can help you recover from alcoholism and live without drinking. A.A.'s primary purpose is for members to stay sober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety.

About "anonymity"
-->"That 'anonymous' part was the most important thing to me at the time. To me, using our first names is only the first step in being anonymous. There is much more to anonymity. It means absolutely no gossip. It means not repeating what we heard about anyone at the diner or in the parking lot after a meeting—not even to our sponsor," from the Grapevine article "Hope Nobody Sees Me! A member in Tennessee shares his thoughts about the importance of anonymity."
-->"Anonymity is the spiritual foundation of all our Traditions, ever reminding us to place principles before personalities" (from A.A.'s Traditions).
