Alcoholics Anonymous (AA)

Alcohol has been around for centuries, it has been used for many purposes, but mainly for enjoyment. It has been said, that beer even preceded bread as a staple. Alcohol can be enjoyed, there are wines that are exquisite and highly priced, and spirits painstakingly made for pleasure.

But alcohol, has also ruined many people’s lives. Alcoholism has also been around, for just about as long as alcohol itself.

Alcoholism, is normally when a person can no longer control their drinking, when trouble and alcohol seem to go hand in hand.
It often puts the user in very dangerous or unpleasant circumstances. And often friends, family or loved ones, have complained about their drinking.

For these people there is Alcoholics Anonymous, founded by Bill. W in the early 1950’s, it has grown to be an international success story, that has helped millions, get control of their lives again.

The basis of the program, is to allow people with common issues to come together, and discuss their problems.

They don’t focus on the drinking or what you drink, but the actual disease of alcoholism. Many people who frequent AA have given up trying to control their drinking. And the feelings of guilt, hopelessness and loneliness have become far too much to bare.

Alcoholics Anonymous, offers a safe, secure and confidential environment, for you to talk about your own issues, if you wish, or learn from others, who have maybe had more experience with it.

The process is a slow one, and it is a one day at a time thing. Being able to work through not only your drinking, but the issues of why you drink, and what triggers you to drink, will take time.

Many people who have found Alcoholics Anonymous, have attempted to stop drinking, promising themselves a week or so, only to start drinking within a few days.
They also often wish, others around them would stop looking into their business regarding drinking, and offering advice or trying to get them to stop.

Others may have also started to need to drink just to start their day, purely to get going, or to just stop shaking.

Or maybe the problems with their drinking have become so bad that they have started to miss days of work or school, and it has even started to effect their home, family and relationships.

These are the people, who could really find solutions with AA. There are many reasons to want to stop drinking.

Such as the illnesses it can bring, like liver disease, in which 13,050 people died in one year from alcohol.
Or the massive number of alcohol induced deaths, which excluded accidents and homicides, at 22,073, this number is staggering.

With $40- $60 billion spent each year on alcohol addiction problems, it is obviously a serious issue. Every 30 minutes an alcohol related accident takes place on roads within the USA.

With these numbers, it needs to stop, people need to take charge of their lives, and Alcohol Anonymous may be able to help.

If you are having issues with alcohol, or know someone who is, then you need to contact AA right now. This first step could be the change your life is needing, and it may be the one thing that you have not attempted that can make it all change.

You have nothing to lose apart from a few hours of your time.
