AA – a Little Bit of Information
AA is not a religious organisation. Alcoholics Anonymous has only one requirement for membership and that is the desire to stop drinking. There is room in AA for people of all shades of belief and non-belief.
Many members believe in some sort of god. We have members that come from and practice all sorts of religons; but also many are atheist or agnostic.
It’s important to remember that AA is not a religious organisation. We have a simple idea that there is a power greater than us as individuals.
What we all have in common is that the programme helps us find an inner strength that we were previously unaware of. Where we differ is how we identify the source. Some people have thought of the word God as standing for “good and orderly direction”, or even “group of drunks”. Many of us believe that there is something bigger than ourselves which is helping us today.

Alcoholics Anonymous was founded in 1935 and has over 2,000,00 members. AA concentrates the personal recovery and sobriety of individuals who turn to them for help.
