WON'T EVERYONE KNOW I AM AN ALCOHOLIC IF I COME INTO A. A.?. A. Anonymity is and always has been the basis of the A. A. program. This means that the newcomer can turn to A. A. with assurance that none of his new-found friends will violate confidences relating to his drinking problem. The older members of the group appreciate how the new-comer feels. They can remember their own apprehensions about being identified publicly with what.. . .seems to be a terrifying word: "Alcoholic". Most alcoholics have made names for themselves as full fledged drunks by the time they turn to A.A. Their drinking, with rare exceptions, is not likely to be a well-kept secret. Under these circumstances, it would be unusual indeed if the good news of the ako- lic's soberity did not also cause comment. Whatever the circumstances, no disclosure of fhe new-comers affiliation with A. A. can rightfully be made by anyone but the newcomer himself and then only in such a way that the fellowship will not be harmed. Q. HOW DOES A PERSON JOIN A. A.?. A. No one "Joins" A. A. in the usual sense of the term. No application for membership has to be filled out. There are no initiation fees, no dues, no assessments of any kind. Most people become associated with A. A. simply by attending the meetings of the local group. Others may have been guided to a local A. A. group by a friend, relative, doctor or spiritual adviser. There are no membership drives in A. A. The alcoholic himself is the only one who can tell whether or not he needs A. A. The only requirement for membership is an honest desire to stop drinking.
