If you are celebrating a certain length of sobriety or a birthday, Please type your name in the group chat room using the chat icon at the bottom of the screen, please be sure that it is sent to the host and we will recognize you at the end of the meeting.

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 achieve sobriety.
Are there any other alcoholics here other than myself? Please raise your hand. Welcome!
