About Alcoholism

   For over fifty years, the American Medical Association has considered alcoholism to be a disease. It's an unusual disease in that it can be both mental and physical. It's an ecumenical disease. Simply stated, this means whether you come from a park bench or Park Avenue, it can sneak up, attack you, and ruin your life. Ultimately, it can also ruin your home life, family, friends, and your job. For soldiers, it can also contribute to the problems associated with P.T.S.D. Frequently untreated alcoholism leads to bizarre, dangerous unacceptable behaviors, hospitals, jails, mental wards and death.

   Surprisingly, most people have no idea that A.A. has helped millions of alcoholics recover from this cunning, baffling, powerful, and deadly disease. For many folks, who wouldn't be caught dead in an A.A. meeting, these recordings will allow them to secretly be a fly on the wall at these extraordinary meetings. Meetings that have helped heal millions of alcoholics.

   A.A. meetings occur every day in tens of thousands of places all over the world, where millions of recoveries are an ongoing process.

   Alcoholics Anonymous has no hidden agenda. The primary purpose of A.A. is simply to help members stay sober and help other sick and suffering alcoholics achieve sobriety.

   The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking. There are no dues or fees for A.A. membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions.
