What is AA? An Introduction
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 AA membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions.
AA is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organisation 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.
Wednesdays: 8pm- 9.00pm (20:00-21:00)
Gamblers Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who have joined together to do something about their own gambling problem and to help other compulsive gamblers do the same.
Fridays: 7:30–9pm (19:30-21:00)
Narcotics Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women for whom drugs had become a major problem. We meet regularly to help and support each other to stay abstinent from all mind altering chemicals. Addiction can be viewed by society in a very stereotypical way; the person sitting begging, the person on a park bench drinking or the person in an alley way using drug paraphernalia. However, addiction is a disease that can happen to anyone. It affects people of all ages, race, sexual identity and religion. Addiction does not discriminate. There are various reasons why addicts use drugs. Some of us enjoyed them, while some of us used to suppress our feelings. Some of us became addicted to prescribed medication or some of us used, initially, due to peer pressure and then could not stop. Addiction is a progressive disease and if left untreated can lead to jails, institutions or death. Our lives had become unmanageable due to our drug use. Narcotics Anonymous use the 12 steps of recovery to help us overcome our disease. Whilst we use these as an integral part of our daily lives, meetings remain paramount. One addict helping another is without parallel, this fellowship gives us hope. We learn to experience feelings, and rather than act on them, we share them with other addicts and we learn to work through our problems. In Narcotics Anonymous we learn that we are able to experiience our lives without the need to drink alcohol or use drugs. Our meetings are our lifeline, they help us stay clean and sober, connect to others and most importantly help someone who is new or struggling.
