The opposite of addiction is connection!
Anyone with a desire to stop drinking is welcome, regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, income or profession. And it’s free.
You can just sit and listen and learn more about recovery, or you can share about your situation. It’s completely up to you.
WHAT are AA meetings?
AA Kenya meetings are held both virtually and physically, numerous times a day. The list below is updated regularly to reflect any changes to the meetings.
Alcoholics Anonymous is established in approximately 180 countries. The people in each group get together, usually once or twice a week, to hold AA meetings, of two main types:
1. OPEN MEETINGS: Speakers tell how they drank, how they discovered AA, and how its program has helped them. Members may bring relatives or friends, and usually anyone interested in AA is also welcome to attend “open meetings” as an observer. Only Alcoholics may share.
2. CLOSED MEETINGS: For alcoholics only. These are group discussions, and any members who want to may speak up, to ask questions and to share their thoughts with fellow members. At “closed meetings,” AAs can get help with personal problems in staying sober and in everyday living. Some other AAs can explain how they have already handled the same problems — often by using one or more of the Twelve Steps.
There are all varieties of meetings including but not limited to Big Book Studies, Twelve Steps & Twelve Traditions Studies, Daily Reflections, Open Discussions, Speaker Meetings, Women’s & Men’s, Zoom and Face to Face, AA Literature, Grapevine, as well many others.
Our groups endeavor to provide a safe meeting place for all attendees and encourage a secure and welcoming environment in which our meetings can take place. The formation and operation of an AA group resides with the group conscience. Our common suffering as alcoholics and our common solution in AA transcend most difficulties and help us to create as safe an environment as possible to carry AA’s message of hope and recovery to the still-suffering alcoholic. Remember, at one time we were all where the newcomer is today.
During meetings, please share about the topic of discussion while relating to YOUR alcoholism and recovery. Refrain from lecturing, teaching, commenting, participating in another’s sharing and cross-talking.
Join us, as we Trudge the Road of Happy Destiny.
