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.
The Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) Australia website is a wonderful resource for those new to AA. It provides succinct, clear information about what AA is about, helps new people to determine if AA is for them, what to expect at a meeting, frequently asked questions, examples of personal stories of members experience and more.
