Does "AA" Work?
Some people often wonder if AA really works. In my opinion, and this is just my opinion, I think it does. It will work for people who want to attend meetings around your home area.
After attending several meetings you will be shocked from listening to other people tell their stories of what alcohol has done to them. Alcohol can make you loose your self control and what follows is trouble.
Like all people who attend these meetings, everyone has a story to tell. For myself, I have a choice to make when I am released from SCI. I can head for the nearest club or head for my hometown. I have already chosen to head home.
There is a saying among people who have a drinking problem: you and only you must have the desire to stop drinking. After attending meetings and speaking on behalf of the New Freedom group here at SCI. I think that AA will help people who want help. If you don't want help then AA is not your place. AA will not judge you because everyone who attends AA has a problem with alcohol and that is why they are there.
I will continue to attend AA in my home area to see if it could help me because I have been coming back and forth here for a number of years and have gone through two relationships. I am willing to try AA to see if it could help me so I do not end up back here.
I suggest you give AA a chance and see what you think. Who knows - it may help.
