The international fellowship of Alcoholics Anonymous is popular and well-known throughout the United States and around the world. There are a number of AA meetings in Oklahoma, as listed below. Our AA meeting directory is regularly updated, so please feel free to bookmark this page. We can also help you find AA meetings near Oklahoma and elsewhere.
In 1939, Bill Willson — a co-founder of AA — published a book called Alcoholics Anonymous. It is sometimes called The Big Book and is still in print today. It contains the gist of what ended up becoming the 12 Traditions of AA and the 12 Steps of AA.
Alcoholics Anonymous meetings are held in every U.S. state and in countries all over the world. Because of AA meetings in Oklahoma, any self-confessed alcoholic can get the help and accountability they need. They can do it as part of a community of recovering alcoholics.
AA is all about sober living, but AA meeting formats vary. Some involve book studies and discussions. Others have a lead speaker or two. Nobody has to talk if they do not want to. No one is required to divulge any personal information about themselves. Also, membership in AA is free. Any money given is given voluntarily.
No AA meeting in Oklahoma is exactly the same as another. All AA groups follow the same basic principles, but meeting formats vary and so do group members. You might prefer a certain AA group even if it is not the closest one to you. If you attend an AA meeting in Oklahoma and are not particularly impressed, you can always attend another one.
A good thing to know is that AA meetings in Oklahoma are either “closed” or “open.” An “open” AA meeting is open to anyone who wants to attend and a “closed” one is for alcoholics only.
If you have never attended an AA meeting in Oklahoma, and if you are new to the movement as a whole, you should look for one that focuses on the 12 traditions of Alcoholics Anonymous and the 12 steps of Alcoholics Anonymous. However, it is more important that you simply go to an AA meeting nearby. Then you can ask questions and make a decision as to whether you want to return or go elsewhere.
Of course, you might not find an AA group that you are comfortable with right away. When you find one that you can attend on a regular basis, you can consider it your home group. After a while, you can track your progress with a sobriety calculator.
A generally positive attitude will work in your favor if you want to make the most of your time in AA. No one is optimistic all of the time, but a positive mindset is necessary. You should be open to what Alcoholics Anonymous has to offer. Self-confessed alcoholics in AA have achieved a life of sobriety. You can as well.
Attending various AA meetings sporadically will not be helpful in the long run. It is important that you have a home group — a group that you can participate in regularly. It is also important that you talk to someone within the group who has been sober for a significant period of time. That person can be your “sponsor — a person who keeps you accountable and is a source of encouragement for you.
