Alcoholics Anonymous is a self-help group for admitted alcoholics with various lengths of sobriety who meet to reinforce their commitment to sobriety. It is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other through testimony at meetings. In this manner, they work together to solve their common problem and to help others to recover from alcoholism.
