Give A.A. a chance. We encourage you to try lots of meetings and to try different kinds (meeting list). Some meetings you may like, and some you may not. If you stick around, you will find the contentment that most of us have found in A.A.
Here are some helpful links – Hard copies are available at meetings or by contacting our Literature Chair at firstname.lastname@example.org:
Fourth edition (2001) of the Big Book, basic text of A.A. Since the first edition appeared, in 1939, it has helped millions of men and women recover from alcoholism. Chapters describing the A.A. recovery program remain unchanged. New stories have been added to the personal histories.
Bill W.’s 24 essays on the Steps and the Traditions discuss the principles of individual recovery and group unity.
