ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS© is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism.
A.A. is present in over 170 countries, and worldwide membership is estimated at 2.1 million.

If we answered YES to four or more questions, we were in deep trouble with our drinking. Copyright ©1973 A.A. World Services, Inc. Reprinted with gratitude.
