Is A.A. for You?
Only you can decide whether you want to give Alcoholics Anonymous a try—whether you think it can help you. We who are in A.A. 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 A.A. 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. We decided to try to face up to what alcohol had done to us. Here are some of the questions we tried to answer honestly. If we answered YES to four or more questions, we were in deep trouble with our drinking. See how you do. Remember, there is no disgrace in facing up to the fact that you have a problem.
Printing a single copy of these pamphlets is permitted, in accordance with the A.A. World Services, Inc. Content Use Policy.
Speaks to newcomers who may wonder how A.A. can work for someone “different”—black or Jewish, teenager or nearing 80, plus nine other people who tell how the A.A. program has worked for them.
This pamphlet includes the experience of A.A. members who are hearing and visually impaired, housebound chronically ill or disabled due to brain damage or stroke. Their stories tell how they found A.A. and are living new and productive lives free from alcohol.
