Going to an A.A. meeting is simple. You find out where and when there is a meeting convenient to you and you just turn up. The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking.

You can also listen to a meeting online here.


Alcoholics Anonymous can help people of any age, from teens to elderly, and from all backgrounds and ethnic groups.

A.A. works through members telling their stories of what we used to be like, what happened and what we are like now, and often centres around attendance at A.A. meetings.

The A.A. programme, known as The Twelve Steps, provides a framework for self-examination and a road to recovery, free of alcohol.


There are no dues or fees for A.A. membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions.
