Alcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship of men & women who share their experience, strength & hope with each other that they may solve their common problem & help others to recover from alcoholism. The only requirement for AA 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 & help other alcoholics achieve sobriety.
