Alcoholics Anonymous TM

What is Alcoholics Anonymous?* Alcoholics Anonymous is an informal society of more than 2,000,000 recovered alcoholics in the United States, Canada, and other countries. These people meet in local groups, which range in size from a handful in some localities to many hundreds in larger communities whether in-person or virtually.
