What are AA Meetings All About?

Bill Wilson is a co-founder of AA. He wrote a book called Alcoholics Anonymous and published it in 1939. Sometimes called The Big Book and still in print today, it contains the gist of what eventually became the 12 Traditions of Alcoholics Anonymous and the 12 Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous.

AA meetings have spread throughout the United States and around the world. AA meetings in Minnesota make it so that anyone with an alcohol problem can get help, understanding, and accountability within a community of recovering alcoholics.

AA has a central purpose and mission, but AA meeting formats vary. Some meetings involve group discussions and others have a main speaker. No one is required to share any personal information about themselves or talk to anyone. Membership in Alcoholics Anonymous is absolutely free; no fees are required.

Choosing the Right AA Meeting in Minnesota

When you search for an AA meeting in Minnesota, you will probably consider its location first and foremost. However, other things are also important. AA groups differ from one another; members differ and so do meeting formats. You might prefer some things about a certain group over those of another. After you visit a number of AA meetings nearby, you will know what works for you and what does not.

Before you visit a particular AA meeting in Minnesota, you should figure out whether it is “open” or “closed.” “Open” Alcoholics Anonymous meetings are open to friends, family, and anyone who wants to attend. “Closed” AA meetings are reserved for alcoholics.

If you have never been to an AA meeting in Minnesota, you should look for one that focuses on the 12 steps of AA and the 12 traditions of AA. However, it is more important that you just go to an AA meeting nearby. Then you can ask questions and decide whether you want to return or not.

You might not come across an AA group that you are comfortable with right away. When you find one, you can consider it your home group. After some time, you can track your progress with a sobriety calculator.

Taking Advantage of AA Meetings

It is imperative that you have a positive attitude if you want to make the most of AA. No one is always positive, and that is fine, but you should have a positive mindset overall and be open to all that AA has to offer. AA members worldwide have achieved a life of sobriety and so can you!

Also, please know that it is important to have a home group. A home group is one that you can regularly attend and participate in. If you can talk to someone within the group who has been sober for at least a few years, do it. They can keep you accountable and encourage you when they need to.
