Welcome to the North Middleboro AA Group Web Site  

About Us

We are members of an AA home group from Middleboro Massachusetts who wish to bring the message of AA to other alcoholics, including those in the greater Middleboro area.
The North Middleboro Group meets on Thursday evenings from 8:00 PM until 9:00 PM at the North Congregational Church, 38 Plymouth Street in Middleboro Massachusetts. This is an "open" speaker meeting where all are welcome.

The AA Promises

If we are painstaking about this phase of our development,
we will be amazed before we are half way through.
We are going to know a new freedom and a new happiness.
We will not regret the past nor wish to shut the door on it.
We will comprehend the word serenity and we will know peace.
No matter how far down the scale we have gone,
we will see how our experience can benefit others.
That feeling of uselessness and self-pity will disappear.
We will lose interest in selfish things and gain interest in our fellows.
Self-seeking will slip away.
Our whole attitude and outlook upon life will change.
Fear of people and of economic insecurity will leave us.
We will intuitively know how to handle situations which used to baffle us.
We will suddenly realize that God is doing for us what we could not do for ourselves.
Are these extravagant promises? We think not.
They are being fulfilled among us?sometimes quickly, sometimes slowly.
They will always materialize if we work for them.
From The Big Book, Alcoholics Anonymous, pg 83-84.
