eacmembillYou say, “Yes, I’m willing. But am I to be consigned to a life where I shall be stupid, boring and glum, like some righteous people I see? I know I must get along without liquor, but how can I? Have you a sufficient substitute?”
Yes, there is a substitute and it is vastly more than that. It is a fellowship in Alcoholics Anonymous. There you will find release from care, boredom and worry. Your imagination will be fired. Life will mean something at last. The most satisfactory years of your existence lie ahead. Thus we find the fellowship, and so will you.

“How is that to come about?” you ask. “Where am I to find these people?”

You are going to meet these new friends in your own community. Near you, alcoholics are dying helplessly like people in a sinking ship. If you live in a large place, there are hundreds. High and low, rich and poor, these are future fellows of Alcoholics Anonymous. Among them you will make lifelong friends. You will be bound to them with new and wonderful ties, for you will escape disaster together and you will commence shoulder to shoulder your common journey. Then you will know what it means to give of yourself that others may survive and rediscover life. You will learn the full meaning of “Love thy neighbor as thyself.”

  1. We are so grateful to have alano clubs ! I moved out of C-ville in 91 & I remember the club on Chicago street just opening (I think it was 91 ?) on Chicago street downtown. Wow has it changed here ! Bill S used to take me to meetings before I could drive again & my first in the area was St Catherines in 88. Thank God for AA & our higher power (GOD) working through people in Albuq. New Mexico,Sante Fe,Denver & Grand Junction Colorado. Receiving Good Orderly Direction has been awesome & keeping the itty bitty shitty committee in my head shut down ! May God Bless all of us !!!!! Kriss
