Welcome to the North Middleboro AA Group Web Site
Preamble of Alcoholics Anonymous
who share their experience, strength and hope with each other
that they may solve their common problem
and help others to recover from Alcoholism.
The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking.
There are no dues or fees for A.A. membership;
we are self supporting through our own contributions.
A.A. is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics,
organization, or institution;
does not wish to engage in any controversy,
neither endorses or opposes any causes.
Our Primary Purpose is to stay sober
and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety.

The AA Promises
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.
