What is Alcoholics Anonymous?

Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) is an international fellowship of men and women who have had a drinking problem. It is nonprofessional, self-supporting, multiracial, apolitical, and available almost everywhere. AA groups meet regularly to help members achieve sobriety through following the 12-step program.

The 12 Steps of AA

Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) outlines a 12-step program to support those recovering from alcohol addiction. The steps aim to motivate members toward positive change across Georgia.

  1. We admitted we were powerless over alcohol—that our lives had become unmanageable. The first step is acknowledging the presence of a problem and lack of control.
  2. Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity. This step focuses on believing in and turning toward a higher power for help.
  3. Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood Him. Members make the decision to place their lives under their higher power’s guidance.
  4. Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves. Individuals take an honest look inward at their lives to date.
  5. Admitted to God, to ourselves, and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs. Members share the results of step 4 with their higher power and another person.
  6. Were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character. Individuals become willing and open for their higher power to remove their shortcomings.
  7. Humbly asked Him to remove our shortcomings. Building on step 6, members ask their higher power for help changing these flaws.
  8. Made a list of all persons we had harmed and became willing to make amends to them all. Individuals make a list of those they have harmed.
  9. Made direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others. Members make amends with persons they have harmed, provided it causes no further injury.
  10. Continued to take personal inventory, and when we were wrong, promptly admitted it. Individuals regularly re-examine their behaviors and admit wrongs.
  11. Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God as we understood Him, praying only for knowledge of His will for us and the power to carry that out. Members seek guidance from their higher power.
  12. Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to alcoholics and to practice these principles in all our affairs. After internal shifts via these steps, members spread the message to help other alcoholics.
