Someone once asked a member of A.A.: “I can’t drink anymore, what can I do now?” To which the A.A. member answered: “Everything else.”
Thank you for your interest in Alcoholics Anonymous. On the right you will find links to A.A. pamphlets that explain our recovery program and give a general idea of how A.A. works. You will see that the first and most important step in our program is admission by the alcoholic that he or she is powerless over alcohol, and that life has become unmanageable. It is often helpful for the alcoholic to talk with an A.A. member, because it may make it easier to understand the nature of the illness, and to accept A.A. help.
Alcoholics Anonymous is a program of a new way of life without alcohol, a program that is working successfully for millions of men and women throughout the world, and in all walks of life. The experience of A.A. members is that alcoholism is a progressive illness that cannot be cured, but which, like some other illnesses, can be arrested—by staying away from the first drink, one day at a time.
We would encourage you to get in touch with Baltimore Intergroup to get further information on Alcoholics Anonymous, speak to an A.A. member (24 Hour Hotline) or find local A.A. meetings (including obtaining ZOOM Passwords). You can find local Baltimore-area Zoom meetings as well as In-Person Meetings on their webpage. A link to their page is located HERE.
AGAPE AA Zoom Meetings are listed on our site under Meetings link and onsite meetings have resumed with Social Distancing policies in place. We encourage you to join us at AGAPE A.A. Meetings, begin to fellowship with us, obtain a sponsor and read our literature. AA is not so much a ‘stop drinking’ program, as much as it is a ‘start living’ program. It works, it really does.
A.A. members, as volunteers, are happy to offer help by sharing their experience, strength and hope in staying sober. One of the ways members stay sober is by helping other alcoholics to achieve sobriety.
