When you go to an A.A. meeting you don’t have to give your name. Some meetings may have attendees go around the room to introduce themselves by their first name only. Giving your name is entirely optional. All participation in A.A. meetings is voluntary.
It is not necessary for you to explain why you are there. If you are called on to speak, you can say "I'll pass" or "I'm just here to listen." Anyone is free to simply sit and listen at meetings.
Anonymity is the spiritual foundation of all of A.A.’s Traditions. Please respect this and treat in confidence who you see and what you hear. Likewise, you can count on others to respect your anonymity.
Alcoholics Anonymous has only one requirement for membership and that is the desire to stop drinking. There is room in AA for people of all shades of belief and non-belief.
A.A. is a spiritual program (not religious). Those who believe in some form of divinity often find it useful to incorporate the program into their religious practices and vice versa. This is their choice, there is absolutely no requirement.
What we all have in common is that the program helps us find an inner strength that we were previously unaware of. Where each member differs where they attribute the source.
Whatever you do, please don't let someone else's religious beliefs prevent you from finding the solution that is available to you through Alcoholics Anonymous.
