What are A.A. meetings like?

There are many types of meetings, but at any meeting you will find alcoholics talking about what drinking did to their lives and personalities, what actions they took to help themselves, and how they are living their lives today. An A.A. meeting may take one of several formats, including those specifically geared toward beginners and those featuring speakers, where one sober member shares their experience, strength and hope. Generally, our experience indicates that the best meeting to attend is the first one you can get to.

However, everyone defines this power as he or she wishes. Many people call it God, others think it is the A.A. group, still others don’t believe in it at all. There is room in A.A. for people of all shades of belief and non-belief.
