We are an autonomous A.A. fellowship of recovered alcoholics sharing our experience, strength and hope with each other that we may evermore remain sane concerning alcohol, and to help others like ourselves recover also.
The only requirement for A.A. membership is a desire to stop drinking; we have no dues or fees; we are self-supporting through our own voluntary contributions.
A.A. is not allied with (and neither endorses nor opposes) any particular faith, sect, denomination, politics, organization, institution, religion or cause, does not wish to engage in any controversy, and has no opinion on issues such as alcohol reform or even whether "alcoholism, as we understand it" ("A.A.", page 28) is an actual disease.
Trying to put our lives in order is not an end in itself. Our real purpose in life as we know it today is to "fit ourselves to be of maximum service to God and the people about us" (page 77) while carrying our message of permanent recovery to still others just like ourselves (A.A. Tradition Five).
