What is AA?
Alcoholics Anonymous is a voluntary, worldwide fellowship of men and women from all walks of life who meet together to attain and maintain sobriety. The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking. There are no dues or fees for AA membership.
In Guernsey there are eleven group meetings each week. Membership is about a hundred. We are part of a worldwide fellowship of more than two million members.
How AA members maintain sobriety
AA is a programme of total abstinence. We stay away from the first drink, one day at a time. Sobriety is maintained through sharing experience, strength, and hope at group meetings and through the suggested Twelve Steps for recovery from alcoholism.
Do you want help with a drinking problem?
If alcohol is costing you more than money, then call us today in complete confidence on 713480, or email us at AA Guernsey
NAs are welcome too!
While there is not currently a Narcotics Anonymous meeting in Guernsey, NAs are welcome to attend AA group meetings.
Al-Anon Family Groups
Al-Anon, the fellowship of relatives and friends of alcoholics, is also active in Guernsey. Al-Anon Family Groups provide support to anyone whose life is, or has been, affected by someone else’s drinking, regardless of whether that person is still drinking or not.
Al-Anon meets at Les Cotils Christian Centre, St Peter Port, GY1 1UU, every Monday at 8 p.m.
