New to AA?

Alcoholics Anonymous is a program of a new way of life without alcohol. It is a program that is working successfully for millions of men and women throughout the world and in all walks of life. The experience of AA members is that alcoholism is a progressive illness that cannot be cured but which, like some other illnesses, can be arrested—by staying away from the first drink, one day at a time.


Is There an Alcoholic in Your Life
If someone you love has a drinking problem, this booklet will provide you with facts about a simple program of recovery. Through its help, over two million people who once drank too much are now living comfortable and productive lives without alcohol.




Is AA for You?
Only you can decide whether you want to give A.A. a try - whether you think it can help you.
We who are in A.A. came because we finally gave up trying to control our drinking. We still hated to admit that we could never drink safely. Then we heard from other A.A. members that we were sick. (We thought so for years!). We found out that many people suffered from the same feelings of guilt and loneliness and hopelessness that we did. 


This is AA
If you seem to be having trouble with your drinking, or if your drinking has reached the point where it worries you a bit, you may be interested in knowing something about Alcoholics Anonymous and the A.A. Program of recovery from alcoholism. After reading this brief outline, you may decide that A.A. has nothing to offer you.



A Newcomer Asks
This leaflet is intended for people approaching Alcoholics Anonymous (A.A.) for the first time. In it we have tried to answer the questions most frequently in the minds of newcomers - the questions which were in our minds when we first approached the fellowship.
