provides the user with specific strategies to attain sobriety while
being as comfortable as possible in the process. The information

The AA Grapevine, the International Monthly Journal of Alcoholics
Anonymous, is an integral part of the AA Fellowship and serves as
a mirror to AA¹s development. From its beginning, in June
of 1944, the Grapevine's history has run parallel to that of AA
as a whole, and many of the critical events in the evolution of
the Fellowship have been chronicled in its pages. The Grapevine
soon caught on with groups around the country and gave Bill W. a
way to communicate with the Fellowship. As Bill W. wrote,
he wanted the Grapevine to be "a lifeline linking one suffering
alcoholic to another." Interestingly, the Grapevine became the first
place Bill W. published the Twelve Traditions as well as his changing
views of service. The Grapevine was also the first to print the
Slogans, and the AA Preamble was created by one of the Grapevine's
early editors. Read about the history of these interesting aspects
of the AA story, as well as the history of the Serenity Prayer.
Written, edited and illustrated by members of Alcoholics Anonymous
from around the world, The Grapevine reflects the diverse membership
of AA and expresses a wide range of opinions about recovery. Articles
cover such AA fundamentals as the Twelve Steps and Traditions, sponsorship,
and giving back what has been so freely given.
AA Live Chat Online Meeting
Whether you're checking out Alcoholics Anonymous for the first time,
or you're an old-timer looking for new haunts, you'll probably be
happy to know that there are live AA chats on the Web you can attend
virtually every hour of every day. This is where alcoholics gather
on the Web to share their experience, strength and hope, and to
help fellow alcoholics. You'll find AAers an easy going lot:
in AA, the only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking.
This unofficial, nonprofit AA site attempts to chronicle as many
of these live heart-to-hearts as possible, with an emphasis on ease
of entry. Many may be attended simply by stopping by a Web
site and choosing a nickname and password. Others require
a quick, easy download of software that essentially installs
itself. Some require an America Online account.
Many are also not "officially" aligned with AA, but nevertheless
stridently follow AA principles and traditions.

Problem"). We take positive action. By practicing the
focusing on "The
Solution", and accepting a loving Higher Power of our understanding,
we find freedom from the past and a way to improve our lives today.
Alcohol: Problems & Solutions
Alcohol: Problems and Solutions -- Describes alcohol use and abuse
along with effective ways to reduce drinking problems such as drunk
driving and binge drinking, especially among young people including
high school, college and university students. Other issues are health
(including fetal alcohol syndrome or FAS; benefits of moderate consumption
of beer, wine, and distilled spirits or liquor; heart and coronary
artery disease, stroke, hypertension or high blood pressure, and
longevity); advertising and its effects (including print ads and
tv commercials); public policy (including taxes, warning messages
and labels, server liability, legal age, and blood alcohol content
or BAC); and expert opinion on education and prevention. Prof. David
J. Hanson also answers frequently asked questions.

AC is an inter-denominational, non profit, Christian fellowship
that ministers to three groups: Alcoholics or Substance abusers,
Family members- those who relate regularly with an alcoholic or
substance abuser, and Adult Children - individuals who were raised
in alcoholic, substance abuse or dysfunctional families. AC
ministries is dedicated to the propagation of the gospel of Jesus
Christ, as well as sharing His burden for the lost and hurting individuals.
We believe that "God as we understand Him" is the triunion God,
"God the Father," "God the Son," and "God the Holy Spirit," and
by the acceptance of Jesus Christ as personal Savior, we receive
eternal life. Jesus is the doorway to fullness of life in the Spirit
and the means by which we can turn our lives and wills completely
over to God. This fellowship uses the Word of God as its primary
source of direction. Those leading the meetings are all "Born Again,"
compassionate Christians, dedicated to the service of Jesus Christ.
Our chief goal is to direct and restore the alcoholic or substance
abuser, the family member and the adult child to a sincere and dedicated
relationship with Jesus Christ. Utilizing the written Word of God,
they are made aware of the mighty tools available to them as born-again
believers. Jesus begins by healing the inner man and working outward.
We believe that as a person dies to self and is reborn to Christ
(2 Cor. 5:17) he/she can be totally released from oppression and
fear that have kept him/her in bondage. (John 8:36) We encourage
that a person stay active in their local A/C, AA, NA, ACOA, or other
support group and continue to worship within their own body of believers.
We suggest where there is no strong church ties existing, that the
person becomes active in a Bible-believing church of his/her own
Founded in 1948, Alcoholics Victorious support groups offer a safe
environment where recovering people who recognize Jesus Christ as
their "Higher Power" gather together and share their experience,
strength and hope. Both the

The primary objective of Back to
Basics is to provide the recovery community with meeting formats
that are historically accurate and replicate those conducted in
the 1940'and 1950's when A.A. experienced a 50-75% recovery rate
the most part, these formats have been lost to the fellowship.After many years of research and numerous old-timer interviews,
it has become clear that there was more to the "Original" A.A. program
than just Beginners' Meetings.

Empowered Recovery is based on a
concept model known as the “Recovery Triad,” which describes the
three segments of non-alcoholic recovery: (1) Recognition; (2) Education;
and (3) Resolution.
Rather than viewing the alcoholic as the enemy, Empowered Recovery
properly targets alcoholism and its paramour, codependence, as the
enemies to be conquered. Of course, Empowered Recovery focuses on
the recovery of the codependent-nonalcoholic, not the alcoholic.
The alcoholic is solely responsible for his or her own recovery;
and the non-alcoholic is solely responsible for his or her own recovery—including
that of any minor children involved.
Helping people recover from all forms of addiction, including alcoholism,
codependency & drug addiction through Jesus Christ & 12 Step groups.
In spiritual recovery one of the most effective guidance systems
we know of is the 12-Step program of Alcoholics Anonymous and other
similar groups. A wonderful aspect of 12-Step programs is that they
are available virtually anywhere. It is a secure feeling to know
we can venture into groups and find support wherever we travel or
wherever we live.
An Al-Anon members personal story. Offers support to those living
with an alcoholic. For me, serenity began when I learned to
distinguish between those things that I could change and those I
could not. When I admitted that there were people, places, things,
and situations over which I was totally powerless, those things
began to lose their power over me. I learned that everyone has the
right to make their own mistakes, and learn from them, without my
interference or assistance!

Out From Under
Through more than three decades the nation has vainly struggled
to overcome the ever more burdensome alcohol-drug-crime epidemic.
Stymied and wearied battling within the age-old false paradigm,
we have all but bankrupted our resolve and our hope. Fortunately,
during this same period a new paradigm has emerged that fully integrates
all of the valid scientific and clinical knowledge of addiction.
It provides crystal clear understanding and guidance in addressing
all aspects of public policy, prevention, intervention, treatment
On this page we will travel together into the world of the 12 Step
Recovery Process. What you find here will be a collection of experience,
strength and hope that is shared by millions of people worldwide!
These steps are suggested as a plan for recovery, and can be combined
with universal beliefs surrounding spiritual awareness. The most
important concept within this process, is the knowledge of we-ness.
This sounds humorous and is meant to be! We-ness encompasses the
vital connection that must be accepted within the framework of the
12 steps. We are of a community together, not alone! Together we
recover as we discover the 12-step path of living principles.
