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, 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.
