Alcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship of people who share their experiences, strengths, and hope with each other so that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism. The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking. There are no dues or fees for AA membership; it is self supporting through its own contributions. AA is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization, or institution. It does not wish to engage in any controversy; it neither endorses nor opposes any causes. Its primary purpose is for its members to stay sober and to help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety.
