Is AA For You?

We who are in AA came because we finally gave up trying to control our drinking. We still hated to admit that we could never drink safely. Then we heard from other AA members that we were sick. (We thought so for years!) We found out that many people suffered from the same feelings of guilt and loneliness and hopelessness that we did. We found out that we had these feelings because we had the disease of alcoholism.

Welcome to SEPIA

 

IF YOU WANT TO DRINK, THAT’S YOUR BUSINESS.

IF YOU WANT TO STOP, THAT’S OURS.

Do you feel that drinking is negatively affecting your life?
Do you wish you could quit, but you don’t feel like it is possible?
If you want our help, we are Alcoholics Anonymous and have found a new way to live happily without alcohol.

Daily Reflection

 

For February 12

"THE ROOT OF OUR TROUBLES"

Selfishness — self-centeredness! That, we think, is the root of our troubles. How amazing the revelation that the world, and everyone in it, can get along just fine with or without me. What a relief to know that people, places and things will be perfectly okay without my control and direction. And how wordlessly wonderful to come to believe that a power greater than me exists separate and apart from myself. I believe that the feeling of separation I experience between me and God will one day vanish. In the meantime, faith must serve as the pathway to the center of my life.

Stay in tune with the AA Community in the Southeastern PA area with the SEPIA Events Calendar.

Get in Service

Our Twelfth Step — carrying the message — is the basic service that the A.A. Fellowship gives; this is our principal aim and the main reason for our existence. Therefore, A.A. is more than a set of principles; it is a society of alcoholics in action. We must carry the message, else we ourselves can wither and those who haven’t been given the truth may die.

AA Program

In order to stop drinking and stay stopped, we have a few simple suggestions used in A.A.’s program that can work for you as they have worked for countless others. Click here to learn more about the AA program.

SEPIA Information

SEPIA covers the Southeastern Pennsylvania area, including the city of Philadelphia and the surrounding counties of Bucks, Chester, Delaware, and Montgomery. Our primary purpose is to carry the message of recovery to the alcoholic who still suffers. If you want to drink, that’s your business; if you want to stop, it’s ours.
