What is an AA Meeting?

A meeting of Alcoholics Anonymous is a place where alcoholics and people who struggle with addiction gather for one hour to share their experience, strength, and hope. AA Members who attend an Alcoholic's Anonymous meeting in Essex, MA will share their experience getting sober through their personal anecdotes with anyone working on their recovery journey. There is no religion, creed or race, for membership, just the want to get sober, and live a fulfilling existence without alcohol.

The Best Method of Selecting an AA Meeting in Essex, MA

It is important when coming to AA that you pick a meeting that is suited for where you are at in sobriety. The first type of Alcoholics Anonymous meeting is a new comers meeting and is not only for new comers but is a meeting that inspires members to share their stories and ask for help. The next type of meeting would be a gender specific meeting, which is only open to either men or women. A Closed meeting simply means the group is solely focused on conversations regarding how to maintain sobriety from alcohol. Talking about any other drugs is not allowed. A Step Study is a gathering that is simply focused on a single step and discussed in length regarding the best approach to working this step and applying it to your daily life. Traditions meetings are focused on the 12 traditions of AA. The 12 traditions are different than the 12 steps. The traditions were created to maintain order throughout AA and maintaining accountability to these traditions is why you can join an AA Meeting anywhere in across the globe to hear the same message.

How to get the most out of your first AA meeting in Essex, MA

To get the most out of your first AA meeting you need to walk through the front door with an open mind, and the willingness to change. Make sure to be ready to arrive early and stay late because there is always a “before” and “after” for every meeting, where the members of the group gather outside and talk. Make sure during opening remarks that you raise your hand to let the group know this is your first meeting. Make sure to request a meeting list, with phone numbers of the group members. Last, but certainly not least don’t hesitate to raise your hand and speak, let the group know what lead you through their doors that day.
