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
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.

A.A.'s Legacy of Service
by Bill W.*
Our Twelfth Step — carrying the message — is the basic service that the A.A. Fellowship gives; this is our principal aim and the main reason for our existence. Therefore, A.A. is more than a set of principles; it is a society of alcoholics in action. We must carry the message, else we ourselves can wither and those who haven't been given the truth may die.
Hence, an A.A. service is anything whatever that helps us to reach a fellow sufferer — ranging all the way from the Twelfth Step itself to a ten-cent phone call and a cup of coffee, and to AA's General Service Office for national and international action. The sum total of all these services
is our Third Legacy of Service.
Services include meeting places, hospital cooperation, and intergroup offices; they mean pamphlets, books, and good publicity of almost every description. They call for committees, delegates, trustees, and conferences. And, not to be forgotten, they need voluntary money contributions from within the Fellowship.
*Bill wrote these words in 1951, therefore, his words reflect that time period in their details. (Reprinted from The A.A. Service Manual, with permission of A.A. World Services, Inc.)

I Am Responsibile...
When anyone, anywhere, reaches out for help, I want the hand of A.A. always to be there. And for that:
I AM RESPONSIBLE.
