13 May How much does it cost?
Nothing. Each meeting is self-supporting through our own donations but no donation is ever required to attend a meeting. The A.A. program of recoveryfrom alcoholism is available to anyone who has a desire to stop drinking, whether he or she is flat broke or the possessor of millions. Most local groups “pass the hat” at meetings to defray the cost of renting a meeting place and other meeting expenses, including coffee, sandwiches, cakes, or whatever else may be served. In a large majority of the groups, part of the money thus collected is voluntarily contributed to A.A.’s national and international services.
