The idea that somehow, someday he will control and enjoy his drinking is the great obsession of every abnormal drinker.

Problem with alcohol?
If you think you have a problem with drinking, we’re here to help.
If you are having trouble with your drinking and it has reached the point where it worries you, you may be interested to know something about Alcoholics Anonymous and the AA programme of recovery from alcoholism. On this page we have some information which might help you to determine for yourself whether or not alcohol has truly become a problem for you. And remember that you will always be most welcome to join the thousands of men and women in AA who have put their drinking problems behind them and now lead “normal” lives of constructive, day by day sobriety.
If you have already decided you want help you can get in touch in one of the following ways.
If you want to speak to someone in your area who has found a solution to the problems they had as a result of their drinking you can call our helpline Free on 0800 9177 650, to be put in touch with someone locally.
If you prefer e-mail as a means of contact then feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We have a team of volunteers who have experienced the problems that losing control of your drinking can bring. They are only too pleased to be willing to help.
Or you can simply turn up at one of our meetings – click on this link to find one near you. We strongly suggest that when you arrive you let someone know that this is your first meeting, that way they will be able to provide you with information that most people new to AA find useful.
