Hi! My name is Nick and I'm an alcoholic.
Before I went to AA I was suicidal and felt desperately alone. I hated everyone and everything around me and I hated myself most of all.
Hi! My name is Larry and I'm an alcoholic.
If I had known that life would be this amazing in recovery, I probably would've gotten sober 10 years earlier. I thought giving up alcohol and drugs would be a lonely life sentence but really it was the beginning of a fun incredible ride.
Hi! My name is Louisa and I'm an alcoholic.
My smiles had grown forced and I learned how to create an acceptable facade: 'well-adjusted', 'capable'...but my inner life was something very different.
Hi! My name is Ann and I'm an alcoholic.
I worked the steps from 1 to 12 with a sponsor, but I continue to live in that work of the steps. It’s not work that makes me sweat, it’s work that makes me smile.
Most of us have been unwilling to admit we were real alcoholics. No person likes to think he is bodily and mentally different from his fellows. Therefore, it is not surprising that our drinking careers have been characterized by countless vain attempts to prove we could drink like other people.
There are no dues or fees for A.A., and we don’t keep any records of who comes or who leaves. You are welcome to come along to a meeting and see what is being said, and we won’t bother you if you decide that you don’t want what we have to offer; so you have nothing to lose and possibly everything to gain.
