Alcoholics Anonymous operates a 24-hour telephone contact service on 0800 2296757. This will connect you to A.A. volunteers in the area you are calling from. The volunteers will be happy to answer your questions or put you in touch with those who can.
Even the most powerful desire to stop drinking is of no use to the alcoholic.
Alcoholics Anonymous is 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 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. A.A. 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.
