AA Loners

Established May 22, 2005, the AA Loners Group hosts a closed email meeting for AA Loners living more than two hours from the nearest meeting. (See below for the difference between closed and open AA meetings.)

This is not a meeting for those wishing to help AA Loners. It is a meeting for AA Loners. Those who are homebound or who otherwise cannot attend AA meetings are also welcome.

The Difference Between Open and Closed AA Meetings

The purpose of all A.A. group meetings, as the Preamble states, is for AA members to "share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism." Toward this end, AA groups have both open and closed meetings.

Closed meetings are for AA members only, or for those who have a drinking problem and "have a desire to stop drinking."

Open meetings are available to anyone interested in the Alcoholics Anonymous' program of recovery from alcoholism. Nonalcoholics may attend open meetings as observers.
