Portland AA Meetings

There are many different kinds of AA meetings.  Speaker meetings include a talk by a sober member, telling about what life was like while drinking, what happened to get them to AA, and what life is like in sobriety. We call this sharing our “Experience, Strength and Hope.” Other meetings include topic discussions and reading from the books Alcoholics Anonymous or the Twelve Steps & Twelve Traditions.  

Everyone is welcome at “open” meetings; “closed” meetings are limited to those who want to quit drinking, and stay quit. With almost 900 meetings per week in Portland metro, there are plenty to choose from.  Try several kinds to see what what works for you. Although we often meet in churches, AA is not affiliated with any religious organization; some groups meet in community centers, Alano Clubs, hospitals, or even outdoors.

If you want to keep drinking, that’s your business.  But if you want to stop… AA can help.

What is AA?

Alcoholics Anonymous is an international fellowship of men and women who have had a drinking problem. It is nonprofessional, self-supporting, multiracial, apolitical, and available almost everywhere. There are no age or education requirements, no dues or fees, and AA is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution. Membership is open to anyone who wants to do something about his or her drinking problem.

AA Preamble

The Preamble was introduced in the June 1947 issue of the AA Grapevine magazine and borrows much of its phrasing from the Foreword to the original edition of the Big Book, Alcoholics Anonymous

The AA Preamble

12 Steps

AA’s Twelve Steps are a group of principles, spiritual in their nature, which, if practiced as a way of life, can expel the obsession to drink and enable the sufferer to become happily and usefully whole.

The 12 Steps

 

12 Traditions

AA’s Twelve Traditions apply to the life of the Fellowship itself. They outline the means by which AA maintains its unity and relates itself to the world about it, the way it lives and grows.
