Alcoholics Anonymous extends all throughout the United States and around the world. There are numerous AA meetings in Montana, as listed below. Our AA meeting directory is updated regularly, so please feel free to bookmark this page. We can also help you find AA meetings near Montana and elsewhere.
Still in print today, Alcoholics Anonymous was published in 1939. It was written by a co-founder of AA and is often called The Big Book. It contains the central tenets that led to the eventual formation of the 12 steps of AA and the 12 traditions of AA.
The global fellowship of Alcoholics Anonymous has one overarching purpose: to help alcoholics live a life of sobriety. All AA meetings in Montana have that same purpose, but their meeting formats vary. Some meetings are led by a main speaker or a group of speakers. Others make use of group discussions and/or book studies. No one in the group is required to talk or reveal any personally identifiable information.
Thanks to the AA groups and AA meetings in Montana, alcoholics can learn to live without alcohol. A key feature of AA is its community — a group of people who are recovering from alcoholism. It provides anyone who is struggling with alcohol an environment in which they can do something about their addiction.
Membership in AA is free. There are no signup fees involved and any money that is given is given voluntarily.
AA groups worldwide exist in order to help alcoholics live a sober life. However, one AA meeting in Montana is not going to be exactly the same as another. AA meetings in Montana vary in terms of format and feel. With all of us having our own needs and personalities, one AA group or AA meeting will not work for everyone. If a specific AA meeting in Montana does not suit your needs or personality well, you have other options.
Before you go to an AA meeting in Montana, an important thing to know is that the meeting is going to be either “open” or “closed.” An “open” AA meeting is one that is open to non-alcoholics and a “closed” meeting is exclusively for alcoholics.
If you are new to AA as a whole, you might want to look for an AA meeting in Montana that focuses on discussing the 12 traditions of Alcoholics Anonymous and the 12 steps of Alcoholics Anonymous. Any AA meeting in Montana will talk about them, but a solid understanding of them is important to develop. Some Alcoholics Anonymous meetings focus on them more than others, but do not let that hold you back from getting started. You should simply attend an AA meeting — any AA meeting in Montana. Then you can decide whether you want to return or go elsewhere.
It might take a while before you find a Montana Alcoholics Anonymous group that suits your needs and personality. When you find one, you can consider it your home group. After some time, you can check your progress with a sobriety calculator.
In order to combat your alcohol addiction successfully, you should have a positive attitude and be open to all that AA has to offer. Alcoholics worldwide have achieved long-term sobriety with the help of Alcoholics Anonymous and so can you. The right mindset will help you make the most of AA.
Of course, relapse is a real possibility if you fail to attend AA meetings regularly. If you are part of an AA group in Montana that you feel “at home” in, please talk to someone within the group who has been sober for a few years. They can be your “sponsor.” They can keep you accountable and be there when you need to talk to them.
