Global Steps AA Meetings

AA PREAMBLE

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.

R.S.V.P. -- Yes or No?


Usually, we do not avoid a place where there is drinking -- if

we have a legitimate reason for being there. That includes

bars, night clubs, dances, receptions, weddings, even plain

ordinary parties.

You will note that we made an important qualification.

Therefore, ask yourself, "Have I any good social, business,

or personal reason for going to this place? Or am I expecting

to steal a little vicarious pleasure from the atmosphere?"

Then go or stay away, whichever seems better. But be sure

you are on solid spiritual ground before you start and that

your motive in going is thoroughly good. Do not think of

what you will get out of the occasion. Think of what you can

bring to it.

If you are shaky, you had better work with another alcoholic

instead!
