Alcoholics Anonymous® is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism. The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking. There are no dues or fees for AA membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions. AA is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy, neither endorses nor opposes any causes. Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety.

I was doodl’n around this afternoon and noticed there weren’t any comments on here, so here’s my first’n. I noticed I can read the Big Book on here, among other things. I’ve also noticed that someone has went to a lot of trouble to get a place on the Internet where Alcoholics can read without opening a book, I like that.There is one Alcoholic that appreciates your efforts and to think I know the Author, Editor, Producer or what ever ya call the head person, live and In person of something that is capable of being known worldwide.I Love You Kayce L, Keep Com’b Back….LOL
Wonderful site. So glad I found it. Greetings and love from the UK.
Hi Wendy from UK
Hi Wendy….Ronnie uk x
Thank you for this site. I can take it with me anywhere on my iPad mini. Im a Ronnie too , from the US.
I am just beginning to use this site more and more who would ever think that recovery through the use of the Internet the BigBook on my phone.i remember one time getting so miffed with the BigBook I threw it and it got all tatered up. If I do that with my phone, it would be an expensive BigBook lol
That is so funny. I did the same thing with my Big Book – whipped it across the room. I was so mad – for some unknown reason. That was 18+ years ago … Still sober … Still have the book.
Hahaha. Me too only it was the 12 & 12 and I threw it into to bushes. It was page 90 that says, “when ever we are distirbed there is something wrong with us…” My, how that infuriated me!! “They” didn’t realize it was all “his” fault. lol. That was 15 years ago. Still sober and VERYactive in AA. God is good!
They say Let go or be draged i had to be dragged before I let go… awesome website keep on keeping on … one day at a time ..God is awesome and God is here for you always
So glad this site is available on the go….it’s very handy…sooo nice to meet all of you…..7/16/98 women do recover
Love being able to read the Word right on my iPad! What a great site, for I’m finding that I’m learning more and more about my disease simply by clicking on an icon-while waiting in carpool line!
I am becoming a daily user already-Imagine That!
So grateful to the people who made this site possible.
Lolly in Savannah
A gentleman shared this website with me at a meeting today. I think I will be very helpful. Thank you
I’m so thankful for this site. I can pull it up all through the day on my smart phone.
Thank God for the person who thought of this ideal.
I’m very happy to have run a crossed this app Makes it much more simple to read ! Now I can read wherever I choose without dragging a book w me !!
Hi is the iOS update gonna be available for the app to work in the UK as it’s not working since I updated iOS 11
I appreciate the effort that someone put into this website. I have been in and out of the rooms but I am really trying this time. I am coming up on my 30 days and live that I can study the literature anywhere without my big book. So thanks a lot!
I don’t know you but you need meetings here in the rooms of Aa of you can get here hold them in your home for its working with others that helps us stay sober I learned this the hard way
You just don’t drink no matter what. I was in & out for years, now by the Grace of God & you people I’m coming up on 3 years this Thanksgiving. Who would have ever thought that I’d be sober??? This program is a gift!!!
No need to go in and out of the rooms just have to be willing to go to any length do the 12 steps
Today was a stressful day. I need to read this site to remain sain. Thank you
Hope you are still sober.
Hi Amber, how’s it going?
It works if u work it!!
Thanks so much, I will never leave home without my Big Book again!
Because it is on my phone now! I love that!
I too am grateful for this app! I have it on my phone as well, just added it today. It is always comforting to know we are not alone & to have this forum, big book, etc on my phone is so cool! Thank you!!!!
I love being able to browse my big book no matter where I am. Thank you for the time and effort made putting this together. Any chance the 12 & 12 will be added to this site? I love that book to and use it quite often as a companion to my big book. Havn’t been able to find a 11 & 12 for my iPhone yet.
Awesome, will put this next to my Bible!
Will be on motorcycle for next 9 days and just started AA this week. This site will be truly a blessing .
This is such a blessing. Thank you!!
If you update, please number the pages. It would make it so much simpler for ME to use it in a meeting.
A rested, not irritable, and contented drunk. 😉
Just one day at a time with our “Higher Power” and I will be okay. Glad to be here.
Great app I show all my friends we use the sobriety calculator 100 days tomorrow gr8 app thank you Simon w Australia
I’m only 17, and believeme ive been through sOme rough stuff and I found this app! I’m so thankful I found it!its a God shot (:
Hope your sobriety is going well. I sobered up at 21. Started drinking at my parents card table – small sips were my reward for delivering them beer. One drink was never enough even when I was eight years old. I can still remember the taste – not like Kool-aid for sure but I always asked for more. Wine, beer mixed drinks – didn’t matter. Then it was dope in 6th; drunk and high in 7th & 9th grade. Hospitalized in 9th grade with severe asthma. Always pushing the limit. Finally sobered up my third year in college. No booze or drugs since –
21+ years ago. Only by God’s grace.
I agree with the first blogger that somebody has taken the time and effort to set this app up and for that I am truly grateful
Ps I’m in kefolonia in Greece
It takes time. Stick with It.. Thanks to A.A., the Big Book and all of you in the program. When I came to A.A. The last thing I thought would happen is that I would find God.
Im do great foul for this app an the big book an the calculator thanks for doing this
I just noticed this site as well. I was on break and the thought of lookin through my bigbook hit me so i drcided to see if there was an app. Sweet!!!
This is a really initnlegelt way to answer the question.
I am quite sure that Bill W would approve! Thanks for the great service that you have provided.
Thanks for the app enjoying it alot
This app is awesome! I love the colors and the content!!! Thank you!!!!!
This site is wonderful!!!!! You have the opportunity to help someone you may never
meet by sharing your experience,strength,and hope on a message board. AA has come a long
long way. I’m so grateful. Thank God for AA.
94 days in and life keeps on gettin better everyday! I don’t live in a pink cloud, but I wouldn’t trade actually dealing with the world on a daily basis for the fully loaded blissful misery I used to live in! AA is a Miracle and I see one everyday with my continued Sobriety! Love to all my Fellows of the world and many Blessings to the one who brought this to my cracked screen(my son!!) and always grateful to be around to have this thing cracked by him and not myself in another record breaking drunk! THANK YOU
“fully loaded blissful misery” is the perfect description! Thank you for putting it into words!
I’m another grateful ex-drunk who’s truly grateful for your efforts putting this app together for all of us. I’m on on crutches now and lugging a big book around is a precarious task. But my iPhone fits in my pocket so now I can have my BB wherever I go. Kudos. Im sure Bill and Dr. Bob are up in the BIg Meeting in the sky just grin Ing. What a great way to ” pass it on”. Thanks. Ps. The 12 x 12 would be a welcome addition!
PS again. I’m on crutches not due to a bender – no, I’m quite capable of stupid ideas when I am stark, raving sober!!! Just another one of Gods “blurssings”! ( that’s a cross of a blessing hidden inside of a curse).
Pat i too ended up on crutches in sobriety! Thank god my hp had just downgraded me to an automatic car so i could get to meetings! All the best.
I was just wondering if there is an online AA?
Hi, im Michael and I am an alcoholic I have 18 years of sobriety and just found this site. Good to have the big book here and good to see others who will use this.
This site is my favorite…..
To think, I was cofuesnd a minute ago.
Thanks and God bless those involved with this App. The big book with me everywhere. Welcome to the newcomers and thanks to all those that went before us. Cheers Bill W and Dr Bob! Good luck to all in sobriety. Hang on to the miracle we’ve been given. We are all miracles. All the best to all who do this program. It was the last thing I tried and the first thing to work. Thanks! Tim P
Today 20 yrs. ago I made a decision to stop drinking not knowing the journey would last this long… As I reflect I’m ever so greatful I have a place I can go & know there are people just like me who are willing to express they suffer with the same des ease as I…
I am just figuring this out , the phone that is. I tooled
Around for six years trying to fight it. Got 425 days today
By the Grace of God and all of you people. For that
Thank you. Will be on here allot. Robb,Naples, Fla
Thanks so much for this site. Great way to pass endless bars at airports or a lonely nite back. Can’t thank you enough. Have a blessed day.
I’m on vacation and I’m by myself. I haven’t been in a good space for various reasons, entirely self-inflicted. Sitting in my tent near the ocean on Cape Cod, I was wishing I had my BB with me. Then it struck me that perhaps there is an app. Sure enough! Thank you so much for making this available by iPhone. Going to a meeting later on. Thanks again.
So grateful I found this app! Wonderful & thank you!
Love reading other peoples comments and gratitude!
The text in my pocket and other recoverers on the phone and text
Who got it better than me?
Hi! I am past my 30 days on by a week and it has been hell! But at the same time it has been a blessing ! I am sooo thankful to have come across this app. I have been in and out these rooms for about 2 years. After getting Out of treatment recently , this time is different . I got to stay strong, sober, and take time for my god each day! I love my sponsor and actually enjoy the meetings because I finally “get it”.
I agree I have 2 and a half weeks and you’re right it’s hell and a blessing. I want that 30day chip bad lol
Thank GOD for AA .
There are many ways a person may find sobriety. I personally have tried many and failed. AA and the twelve steps has saved my life. I ave been sober for many many days now and for this I am grateful . I now have peace of mind,a higher power,many true friends and my dog even comes to me now. Each morning I ask God to help me stay sober today. Each day I call my sponsor. Every night I thank God for keeping me sober and I go to meetings on a regular basis. When in meetings I shre about how the AA program ,the steps and God has changed my life. I do this in order to help others and to let them know that there is a solution and hope. If a drunk as I was and other drunks can get sober , anyone can get sober. The program really works I and many many others are living proof of this . Follow our path and let us walk hand and hand with you .
I just love a app that can pick you up.
This one is essential to recovery. I still have Bills
Writing no matter where I am. If I am having a good
Day or Bad, Cannot reachy my spinster,
I can open Bills Book till it sinks in again
I feel we are the Luckest People in the world to
Haxe had a man who was
Determined to show us how to stop depending
In our addition and with our efforts live a prosperious
Life! God Bless today for my sobriety !
“it takes time”? I have heard some well meaning AA’s say “it takes 5 years to get your marbles back”. Cute…but wrong. In fact anytime I hear something cute and catchy in AA a red flag goes up. My concern with the “5 years…marbles back” is that a newcomer may construe that to mean just sit in the corner for 5 years as nothing meaningful can happen until then. Not my experience nor does it align with stories in the BB. There are no timelines in the program. Remember, once you decide you want what they (we) have, you are ready to take certain steps. “We beg of you to be fearless and searching from the very start”. The steps, their miracle working power and the Grace of God could care less how long you have been sober. What you waiting for?? Get a sponsor and get going NOW!! God bless. Great app!!
Adding my grattitude today. Ta kayce. Between this app, rock and recovery radio, spot check inventory app, xaspeakers.com, intherooms meetings and aaonline – this phone is a recovery superbot! Love to us all around the world from australia x
Sitting in Toms River NJ after the storm and just stumbled across this site. Looks like a winner to me ! !
This is a great tool in my tool bag. My sponsees can no longer use the ‘I forgot my book.’ Bwha ha this and the 11 step app keeps some of the excuses down .. Or more creative. ODAT 12 years sober and still know Gratitude is A Verb.
I really enjoy reading the blessing given to us all. AA is a life saver I know only from all my experiences as a drunk.
I enjoy this app very much. Great to have a resource for sobriety on my phone.
This is a great app…I’m struggling big time and have been trying to get sober for the past 10 years. If anyone feels like helping a struggling 30 year old with only 7 days of sobriety under his belt please let me know. Thanks for the app
Hey Patrick I remember the time when I struggled and the biggest hurdle I had to get over was to ask for help. You have just done that!!
When I bought into this program I have never had to walk alone again. There is either other AA people out there for me or my Higher Power that I can reach out to. Today I know that God loves me and has always been there for me! Jeff
Hang in there…remember, “This too shall pass”. Everyone has experienced those feelings before. It gets better, a day at a time. Sometimes, a moment at a time.
Patrick how are you doing. I just read your post from Feb. 2012. Are you still in the program.
Love reading the comments on this site. First time visitor from Winnipeg, Canada. I am truly grateful for my sobriety – without it I have nothing. It feels good to be in contact with someone. Jeff
This is my first post on here, I’m coming up on 2 years may 23th.
I have been in and out for many years, I always wondered why, I couldn’t stay sober and It was because I wasn’t working the program. I always thought I was too cool to pray, but I had a beautiful spritiual experience while I was in the hospital after my last drug and alcohol overdose. I am so grateful of this program and my new life that I work the program, pray, call my sponsor, use my network and as much service can I do! Thank God for this AAmazing program
Here I am on my iPad 2, at age 60 plus, loving this app! Just found it. This is wonderful, now I can read any time in privacy or not…Thank you, thank you for creating this and making it available. Got sober in 1972 and thanks to God and AA, still sober. Believe me it is not because of my ability to be selfless and tolerant and loving, but I still work on those goals daily.
Borrowing an iPad so I didn’t want to pay for any downloads. Love having Big Book on iPad . Thank you.
I can’t sleep tonight. I am so glad that resourcesike this are available. It makes me feel connected to the fellowship.
I am enjoying this site. thanks
Hard to find and get this on I phone in uk. Glad I did. Thanks…. Peter. Brighton uk xxx
Just celebrated 30 years without a drug or a drink. By the Grace of God, 12 steps, and fellowship of AA we did it. Some effort on my part. Have nothing in my life today without Sobriety anAA gave me that. Thank you
Love this app. Sometimes the BIg Book meetings don’t have enough BB’s to arouund. With this app, I always hve one! I live in Kea’au Hawai’i (near Hilo ) on the Big Island. Sobriety is strong here. On 30 May this year, by the Grace of God, I will be 21 (in AA). Still not old enough to drink! LOL!
Excellent app just got a new I pad it is great to be able to take my recovery with me wherever I go discretely
Just found this site going to check it out…wishing everyone a blessed day.
I love this website, I haven’t had a drink since I came into the program June 10 2011, however my sobriety date is 10 April 2013, I had a terrible 3 day slip last year with other substances, for me, sobriety is being Clean And Sober!! Today I feel free! I feel new and swept clean. Sobriety is giving me a new life and AA helps me to learn how to live it! Grateful:-))
I never thought about this until today i’m so glad I found this sight hi my name is MoszellaParker and I’m a alcoholic
I put a God first that keeps me sober
But for the grace of God,29 yrs and 2 months…
**URGENT I NEED A MALE SPONSOR** since I not had a sponsor I keep going back to drink.
I had one in London but I have moved to the country side.
I am 39 male and could do with a sponsor that I can call.
if you can be that person please let me know
I am talking from experience with a sponsor you can get through this and since i have no sponsor i find it very hard to cope.
even if there was email support that would be great that way it dont have to be someone in the UK, but for telephone support i would need someone in the United Kingdom.
I live in Southern Oregon about 35 miles north oh the California border. The town is Medford. I got sober in May of 1971 and stayed sober for 10 years. Myegobgot in the way and I went back out. I came back to AA in May of 1981 and have been clean and sober since. I was surfing over the Internet, put in AA Big Book and ended on your site and have been using your book for several years. Thank you AA and the state of Georgia for being there during my time of need.
great app thank you Georgia Sobriety✌️
The app and the information inside it, is amazing! I’m grateful everyday for it and for my sobriety! Thank God there are people like all of you, including the creator(s) of the app that make all of it possible for me to keep going One Day At A Time!!
My sobriety date is October 5, 2014, this site allows me to track that date and though I have a sponsor and there are actively working through the steps. It’s nice to scroll down and see how many days I’ve put together. Now it’s been a year and a half and it encourages me as I go along.
Thank you for this website. Lets me read the blue book and keep the path of sobriety.
Pedro G from Mexicali
When will this site be updated?
I’m wondering the same thing?
Seems to be waning!?!
