This is A.A.
An Introduction to the A.A. Program
Introductory pamphlet describing the kind of people A.A.s are and what A.A.s have learned about alcoholism. For anyone who thinks he or she may have a problem with alcohol.
"If you seem to be having trouble with your drinking,
or if your drinking has reached the point
where it worries you a bit, you may be interested
in knowing something about Alcoholics
Anonymous and the A.A. program of recovery
from alcoholism. After reading this brief outline,
you may decide that A.A. has nothing to offer
you. Should this be the case, we suggest only that
you keep an open mind on the subject. Consider
your drinking carefully in the light of what you
may learn from these pages. Determine, for yourself,
whether or not alcohol has truly become a
problem for you. And remember that you will
always be most welcome to join the thousands of
men and women in A.A. who have put their drinking
problems behind them and now lead “normal”
lives of constructive, day-by-day sobriety." Excerpt from This Is AA
From the publisher:
Literature published by A.A. World Services, Inc. is a resource for the recovering alcoholic and for anyone who wants to find out about Alcoholics Anonymous, its history and how it works. General Service Conference-approved literature reflects the group conscience of the Fellowship of A.A. and includes the book Alcoholics Anonymous(affectionately known by members as the Big Book); Daily Reflections, a compilation of spiritual reflections contributed by members; books written by one of A.A.’s co-founders (such as Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions and As Bill Sees It); and a wide variety of pamphlets and booklets that deal with the Three Legacies of Alcoholics Anonymous: Recovery, Unity and Service. A.A.W.S. publishes literature in three languages, English, Spanish and French, which reflect the three primary languages spoken in the General Service Conference structure of the United States and Canada. We also publish and license translations of the Big Book and other literature in languages and countries around the world, much of which is available in the literature catalog published by A.A.
