Recovering from alcoholism is not an easy feat, and Alcoholics Anonymous or AA knows all about it. On their website, they feature useful resources for recovering alcoholics who would like to get their lives back on track through positive changes they can make in their lives. This fellowship aims to provide a helpful environment for struggling individuals and they achieve this by having AA meetings which help individuals achieve and remain in sobriety.
About Alcoholics Anonymous
Alcoholics Anonymous is made up of men and women who share their personal experiences to other individuals with the aim of finding both hope and strength to change their alcoholic ways. To be a member of this fellowship, the sole requirement is the desire to stop abusive drinking. It was founded in 1935 by Dr. Bob Smith and Bill Watson in Akron, Ohio. The founders developed the Twelve Step program which aims to help alcoholics abandon their old ways and achieve spiritual as well as character development. Today, AA is led by Caroline Stillman and they hold local meetings for recovering from alcoholism.
