A fellowship of... see definition for aa

A world-wide program of attraction, rather than promotion which suggests as 12-step program of recovery. There are no "rules", in the proper sense, and the only requirement to become an AA is the desire to stop drinking.

In recent years, the school of thought which believes that drug abuse has a place in AA has bolstered significantly, and many people with cross-addiction get sober through AA.

It's simple, but not easy. You can't be too stupid for it, but you can be too smart.

It's not for the jelly beans
Members of Alcoholics Anonymous are reminded to always place principles before personalities. Members may be the most of the Big Book that outsiders ever see.

If you wish to drink, that's your own affair. If you want to stop drinking, Alcoholics Anonymous can help.

Alcoholics Anonymous is a good place to go if you want to stop drinking. If you are an alcoholic, its a good idea not to drink.

A cult that people use to get sober. Though stating it is not a religion every meeting has readings, an offering basket, and talks a lot about God. For a lot of people AA becomes the new addiction. The majority of people are full of shit and show up drunk to the meetings and claim they have been sober for 20 years even though they smell like a bottle of cheap vodka.
Instead of just not drinking a lot of suckers think only God can do it for them via Alcoholics Anonymous when in reality all you have to do is not pick up the fucking bottle. The founder Bill W was a massive drug user, sex addict, and was probably drunk more than half the time at AA meetings.

A place where people go to wallow in self-pity and brag about their addictions.

It helps some people stay sober, but only through the superficial validation and amnesty for all of their wrongdoings. People in AA believe that nothing they have ever done is their fault, because they are afflicted with an addiction.
This definition was written by an ex heroin addict who has been clean for over a year. You don't need alcoholics anonymous to fix your life up- just a pair of balls.

A group of people that sit at the bar all day just a few feet apart, but yet don't know each other.
"Yes, I belong to Alcoholics Anonymous. No one at the bar I frequent knows who anyone else is." We don't talk while we drink, and therefore remain anonymous.

Bill. W. (Wilson) & Dr. Bob (Smith) founded AA in 1935 in Akron, Ohio. In 2001, there were an estimated Over 2 Million members in 108,000 groups meeting in approximately 150 countries around the World! AA has helped So Very Many people & if you're having a layover at an airport or bus station, you can have them page "Friends of Bill W." so you'll have another recovering alcoholic to talk with! Sane for NA, which sprang from AA, just page "Friends of Jimmy K.". Most people there won't know what you're talking about.
Thank the Creator for the Founders of Alcoholics Anonymous, Bill W. & Dr. Bob!
