If you are new to Alcoholics Anonymous and have never been to an AA meeting in Colorado, you should look for one that focuses on the 12 steps of Alcoholics Anonymous and the 12 traditions of Alcoholics Anonymous.

You might not find an AA group that you are comfortable with right away. When you do find one, you can consider it your home group. After some time, you can track your progress with a sobriety calculator.
It is extremely important that you maintain a positive attitude if you want to make the most of AA. No one is positive all the time, and that is fine, but you should be generally positive and be open to all that the program has to offer. AA members worldwide have achieved a life of sobriety. So can you!
If you want to be successful in your sobriety, please do not disregard the importance of having a home group — one that you can regularly attend and participate in. It will help if you talk to someone within the group who has a few years of sobriety under their belt. That person can be your “sponsor” and keep you accountable. They can encourage you when they need to.
