The Philosophy of Alcoholics Anonymous

The focus is on alcoholism. Anonymity is the basic principle of Alcoholics Anonymous. Age, occupation, denomination and origin do not play a role within the AA community. The only requirement for AA membership is a desire to stop drinking.

This is AA (for alcoholics)

If you think your drinking habits are causing you difficulty or even concern, read up on Alcoholics Anonymous and their recovery program.

After reading this brochure, you may well find that AA has nothing to offer you. In this case we suggest keeping what you have read in mind. Take a look at your drinking behavior from the point of view of what you have read here.

Then decide for yourself and completely independently whether alcohol has really become a problem in your life.
And remember, at all times, you will be welcomed by the thousands of men and women in AA.

Alcoholics Anonymous from a Member's Point of View

This booklet is intended to explain to the professional helpers how the AA work. Although the AA program relies on alcoholics sharing their experience, strength, and hope, the recovery process is very individual. This is because each AA member applies the program in the way that suits his or her needs.

This is why the program is presented here as an AA member feels; but the brochure reflects the thinking of the fellowship as it was approved by the A.A. General Service Conference (USA / Canada) and our Joint Service Conference (GDK).

A message for young people

How to tell when drinking becomes a problem.
A simple twelve-question quiz that will make your decision easier

The harsh word "alcoholism" is difficult to deal with.
But nobody is too young (or too old) to have problems with alcohol.
Alcoholism is a disease. It can meet everyone: young, old, rich, poor, black, white.
It doesn't matter how long you've been drinking or what you've been drinking. It only matters what the drink does to you.

What we mean by anonymity

Anonymity is the spiritual foundation of all of our traditions, which should always remind us to put principles above people.

From the very first days, AA personally promised everyone who attended its meetings that they would remain anonymous. Precisely because the founders and first members were self-recovering alcoholics, they knew from their own experience how ashamed most alcoholics are about their drinking and how much they fear becoming known in public.

Questions and answers about sponsorship

Questions and answers about sponsorship

The Alcoholics Anonymous community was born out of sponsorship. When, after a few months of sobriety, Bill W. was overwhelmed by an overwhelming urge to drink, the thought popped up in his mind: "You need another alcoholic to talk to. You need another alcoholic just as much as he needs you needs. "

The AA group - where it all begins

The foundations of our community

"When all else fails, talking to another alcoholic will save the day!" said Bill, one of the founders of our community.

A failed stockbroker and hopeless drinker who was dry at the time of the meeting and struggling to keep his dryness up, he met Dr. Bob, a surgeon still drinking. Both found that their compulsion to drink diminished when they could honestly talk to each other about their problem.

There is better than sitting in a cell

Small guide for prison inmates

We don't mind if anyone drinks, except ourselves. We don't want to get anyone away from alcohol, except ourselves. If you can drink without stress, then drink to our own good.

But we got sick. Or somehow got into the shit from our drinking. Sometimes we didn't even know what we were doing.

Everyone who tells their story in this brochure got stuck. In jail we heard some surprising things about drinking. Things we didn't know before. Mostly it was about our health.

Tips for a prisoner who might be an alcoholic


How it used to be

We don't like to talk about drinking, but we like to drink. We drank when we were on top, when we got dirty, and with everything in between. Little of us knew we were having trouble drinking until it was too late. Alcoholics Anonymous gave us a second chance.

Many of us have also been in prison. Drinking played a big part in our crimes - a bigger one than we thought.

Take the message to jail

Am i responsible
Some alcoholics are not in the fortunate position of being able to go to meetings whenever they want. You are in custody. They have limited access to the experience our community shares in their meetings.

If I need a meeting and there isn't one, what then?
All over the world there are groups for alcoholics in custody. However, these meetings only cover a fraction of the need for groups in prisons. Many there reach for AA's hand but do not find it stretched out.

The AA community in numbers

Following the example of the American AA, after the first survey in 1994, in which separate evaluation sheets were drawn up for Germany / Austria / Switzerland, the German-speaking AA carried out another survey in the German-speaking area in 2007, this time covering the entire German-speaking area. The aim is to break down the structure of membership in the Alcoholics Anonymous community and thereby make our work towards the still suffering alcoholic more effective.
