Medical Definition of Alcoholism
Alcoholics Anonymous is a book that was first published in 1939 - that contains the clear cut and precise instructions on how to recover from alcoholism. The Alcoholics Anonymous Program of Recovery is contained in this book -- which has helped many thousands of alcoholics to recover.
Alcoholics Anonymous is also 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. The basic text for the Alcoholics Anonymous Fellowship is the book Alcoholics Anonymous.
The only requirement for membership in the Alcoholics Anonymous Fellowship is a desire to stop drinking. There are no dues or fees for AA membership; we are self supporting through our own contributions.
AA is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy, neither endorses nor opposes any causes. Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety.
Recovery takes place as a result of an alcoholic following the directions in the book -- which will take the alcoholic through the AA 12 Steps of Recovery -- and enable them to discover a Power Greater than Their Self -- that can and will do for them -- what they have been powerless and unable to do for themselves -- and to assist them to help other alcoholics to recover (which is a requirement for recovery).
