    Re: AA meeting

    AA= Alcoholics Anonymous
    the AA = the Automobile Asssociation

    Neither approves of drinking and driving.

    Re: AA meeting

    Alcoholics Anonymous founded was in 1935. More than 2,000,000 now call themselves members of this organisation. They are people who once drank alcohol to excess but finally acknowledged that they could not handle alcohol intake, and now live a new way of life without it.

    A.A. is concerned solely with the personal recovery and continued sobriety of individual alcoholics who turn to the Fellowship for help. Alcoholics Anonymous does not engage in the fields of alcoholism research, medical or psychiatric treatment, education, or advocacy in any form, although members may participate in such activities as individuals.

    The only requirement for A.A. membership is a desire to stop drinking.

    The A.A. is very much concerned with religion, and believes that a Power greater than the individual could restore us to sanity. It expects members to make a decision to turn his or her will and their lives over to the care of God as we understood Him. A.A. expects members to admit to God, to themselves and to other human beings the exact nature of his or her wrongs and to humbly ask Him to remove their shortcomings.
