What Is A.A.?

Alcoholics Anonymous is an international fellowship of men and women who have found a solution to their drinking problem. It is nonprofessional, self-supporting, multiracial, apolitical, and available almost everywhere. There are no age or education requirements, no dues or fees, nothing to sign, and AA is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution. Membership is open to anyone who wants to do something about their drinking problem.

A.A. Preamble

The Preamble was introduced in the June 1947 issue of the AA Grapevine magazine and borrows much of its phrasing from the Foreword to the original edition of the “Big Book”, Alcoholics Anonymous.

Read the AA Preamble

Twelve Steps

AA’s Twelve Steps are a group of principles, spiritual in their nature, which, if practiced as a way of life, can expel the obsession to drink and enable the sufferer to become happily and usefully whole.

The 12 Steps

Twelve Traditions

AA’s Twelve Traditions apply to the life of the Fellowship itself. They outline the means by which AA maintains its unity and relates itself to the world about it, the way it lives and grows.
