A spokesperson from AA says, "We in AA are men and women who have discovered, and admitted, that we cannot control alcohol. We have learned that we must live without it if we are to avoid disaster for ourselves and those close to us."

Continued..."With local groups in thousands of communities, we are part of an informal international fellowship with members in more than 100 countries. We have but one primary purpose: to stay sober ourselves and to help others who may turn to us for help in achieving sobriety. 
We are not reformers and we are not allied with any group, cause or religious denomination. We have no wish to dry up the world. We do not recruit members. We avoid imposing our viewpoint on problem drinking on others, unless we are asked to do so."

Don't let drink cost you more than money.
