Only you can decide whether you want to give A.A. a try — whether you think it can help you. We who are in A.A. came because we finally gave up trying to control our drinking. We still hated to admit that we could not drink safely. Then we heard from other A.A. members that we were sick. (We thought so for years!)
We found out that many people suffered from the same feelings of guilt, loneliness, and hopelessness that we did. We found out that we had these feelings because we had the disease of alcoholism.
