AA is made up of a small group of men and women with current or previous alcohol related problems who together give mutual support to combat their addiction. If you think you could be suffering from alcohol dependency then help is close at hand in your local AA center.
AA colleagues would never say to your face “you’re an alcoholic”, which leaves it down to you to face up to it. Common symptoms include a constant desire to consume alcohol, always over drinking and the feeling of dependency to alcohol just to get you through the day or night. If you do suffer from any of the previous then you must consider yourself to be an alcoholic or alcoholic dependent person.
There are a lot of people who think that they are not alcoholics just because they have the ability to consume large amounts of alcohol without losing control of their senses, but in the true sense of the word, these people are also alcohol dependent.
As soon as you are certain that you are alcohol dependent, then first you must abstain from drinking as much as you can to kick the habit. Although it is easy to tell someone to cut back on alcohol consumption, it is not possible for an alcoholic to carry out this advice due to the condition that they are suffering from.
It is therefore of extreme importance that people who are dependent on Alcohol get imperative advice from people who have or who are in the process of giving up alcohol consumption and where better than the Alcoholics Anonymous group.
Alcoholics Anonymous is the best kind of support group that anybody can ever think of joining, because it is one of those rare organizations in the world that is apolitical non-denominational and multiracial. The group has absolutely no social, political or religious leanings and the only leaning the group has is towards reaching a collective goal of non-alcoholism.
Alcoholics Anonymous is a self supporting, non- professional organization that is founded, run and managed by past or even current alcoholics, and everybody is free to join in. There are no requirements to be met to become a member, apart from the inclination to kick alcoholism.
Alcoholics Anonymous has the reputation of being the world’s biggest self support organization. You can find local branches of AA in virtually any city throughout the world. Members normally meet up once a week and talk about the difficulties that arise through being dependent on alcohol. They also touch on other subjects like how they plan on kicking the habit, what actually made them want to stop and what the resulting negative and positive changes are in their lives while both on and off alcohol.
The AA Organization offers a totally free membership to anyone who has the need to join. Admission is only on a voluntary basis and each member is free to come and go as they wish. There are no membership records kept although there is an excellent support program called the buddy system. This entails two members looking out for each others best interests and always being there to help should a relapse occur.
Joining AA has been made so simple to anyone in need and all group therapies are monitored by experts in helping people disconnect themselves from alcohol dependency. So why don’t you start afresh and check out a couple of the meetings at an AA center in your area.
