Still in print today, Alcoholics Anonymous was published in 1939. It was written by Bill Wilson, an AA co-founder, and is often called The Big Book. It contains the central tenets that led to the formation of the 12 steps of Alcoholics Anonymous and the 12 traditions of Alcoholics Anonymous.
The worldwide fellowship of Alcoholics Anonymous has one main purpose and mission: to help alcoholics live a life of sobriety. All AA meetings in Vermont have the same purpose, but their meeting formats differ. Some meetings feature a main speaker and others have group discussions or book studies. No one is required to talk or reveal any personally identifiable information.
Thanks to the AA groups and AA meetings in Vermont, alcohol addicts are equipped to live without alcohol. Community and accountability are key features of AA. AA meetings in Vermont give anyone who is struggling with alcohol a safe environment where they can learn to do something about their alcoholism. They do so free of charge since membership in AA is absolutely free. There are no mandatory fees.
AA meetings worldwide exist in order to help people live a sober life. However, one AA meeting in Vermont is not exactly the same as another. AA meetings in Vermont differ in terms of format and feel. Since all of us have our own needs and personalities, one AA group or AA meeting will not be right for everyone. If a particular AA meeting in Vermont does not suit your needs or personality well, there are other options.
Before you go to an AA meeting in Vermont, 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.
You might want to look for an AA meeting in Vermont that dives deeply into the 12 traditions of AA and the 12 steps of AA. Any AA meeting in Vermont will talk about them, but a solid foundation is important. Some Alcoholics Anonymous meetings focus on them more than others, but do not let that hold you back from getting started. Simply attend an AA meeting — any AA meeting in Vermont. Then you can decide whether you want to return or go somewhere else.
It might take a while before you find a Vermont AA group that suits your needs and personality. When you find one, you can consider it your home group. After a few weeks, you can check your progress with a sobriety calculator.
Successfully overcoming your alcohol addiction means that you should have a positive attitude and be open to all that AA has to offer. Alcoholics worldwide have achieved a life of sobriety with the help of Alcoholics Anonymous and so can you. The right mindset will help you make the most of what AA has to offer.
Of course, relapse is possible if you fail to attend AA meetings habitually. If you are part of an AA group in Vermont that you feel “at home” in, please talk to someone within the group who has been sober for a year or more. That person can be your “sponsor.” They can help keep you accountable and be there when you need someone to talk to.
