Need to Talk to Someone Right Now?
We know that this can be a lot of information because we’ve been in your shoes. Do you need to talk with someone now?
Going to Meetings
There are meetings for you and for every alcoholic, who wants help. Our “Meeting List” is available through the Intergroup Office, at most meetings and online. There are over 1700 meetings listed in the five county area of Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery, and Philadelphia counties. There are likely many of meetings close to your home, so find a group that you can relate to and join us anytime. Try and attend as many meetings as you can and don’t drink in between them.
Having a Home Group
Although you will want to attend other meetings, you will want to have a “Home Group”. At our home group we find the individual support and encouragement we need to meet life’s daily challenges. Other meetings provide the variety of people and ideas we need in our recovery.
Just as we are a member of A.A. by saying so, we join a home group by declaring ourselves a member. It is at the home group that we do our early service to A.A. and start giving back what we have been so freely given.
Getting a Sponsor
A sponsor is a member who has made progress in the recovery program and sober living. One-on-one sharing of our experience, strength and hope with our sponsor and others is a cornerstone of A.A. recovery. Though other people can’t solve your problems for you , they can help you deal with them by using the principles of the A.A. program.
Living One Day at a Time
We may stay sober one day at a time, or if necessary one hour at a time. We do our jobs, solve our problems and clean up our past, just one item at a time.
