Alcoholics Anonymous is open to anyone who may have a drinking problem. People are encouraged to go to AA meetings where they can hear alcoholics talk about how they got sober and how they live happily without alcohol. There are close to 100 AA meetings across the greater Western Sydney and Blue Mountains region.
AA is nonprofessional. It’s run by people who are themselves recovering from alcoholism. AA is not associated with any outside organization, including religion, government or charity. There are no fees for attending meetings. AA is self-supporting from the voluntary contributions of its members. Whilst all meetings have some sort of structure, they are generally relaxed and informal. People don’t have to do anything or follow any specific rules. Everything is optional, including whether you speak or just listen. Members do talk about their experience with spirituality, but like everything, that’s optional too.
If you think you may have a problem with alcohol, we encourage you to try several meetings and decide if AA is for you

What is AA?
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.
There are many different ideas about what alcoholism really is. The explanation that seems to make sense to most A.A. members is that alcoholism is an illness, a progressive illness, which can never be cured but which, like some other diseases, can be arrested.
