What is NoNameYet A.A. all about?

The first thing we who have recovered do is to share with you our own past experience with these following hard facts about ourselves and our alcoholism as we A.A.s understand it:

1. We had become powerless over alcohol — we had lost all control — while drinking;
2. We had become just as powerless over alcohol — we could not stay sober — while sober;
3. We finally realized no human power — neither ourselves nor any other human being, counselor, minister, priest or whomever — could ever have provided us with permanent recovery from chronic alcoholism;
4. “Go see God [as you understand God]” had become our only hope just as Dr. Carl Jung had first suggested to the very earliest of A.A. members.

How can someone get started toward permanent recovery?

The people who first helped us come to terms with the above were doing what we A.A.s call “Twelfth-Step work” — looking at Step One (the problem) and Step Two (the solution) — and that is where we who have since recovered also will begin helping you. Then, we will next share our experience with Step Three where you will have the opportunity to decide for yourself about whether or not to continue with the recovery process by taking A.A.’s Steps Four through Nine.

Most of what we NoNameYet A.A. members call “today’s AA” will share something much different with you. At today’s AA, you will hear things such as “Don’t drink, one-day-at-a-time”…but we will share with you that we ended up at the original A.A. — see above — after any such attempts had repeatedly failed. Understanding the huge differences between today’s AA and the original A.A. might seem quite challenging at first, but all of that will become quite clear as we go along!

Will we pat you on the back for not drinking today? No, we will not. Instead, we will share our own experience with being completely unable to sustain complete abstinence while still in our own natural states. So then, what is the solution? From our book of hard-won experience:

“Almost none of us liked the self-searching, the leveling of our pride, the confession of shortcomings which the process requires for its successful consummation. But we saw that it really worked in others, and we had come to believe in the hopelessness and futility of life as we had been living it. When, therefore, we were approached by those in whom the problem had been solved, there was nothing left for us but to pick up the simple kit of spiritual tools laid at our feet. We have found much of heaven and we have been rocketed into a fourth dimension of existence of which we had not even dreamed.
“The great fact is just this, and nothing less: That we have had deep and effective spiritual experiences which have revolutionized our whole attitude toward life, toward our fellows and toward God’s universe. The central fact of our lives today is the absolute certainty that our Creator has entered into our hearts and lives in a way which is indeed miraculous. He has commenced to accomplish those things for us which we could never do by ourselves.” (page 25

“I earnestly advise every alcoholic to read this book through, and though perhaps he came to scoff, he may remain to pray.” –William D. Silkworth, M.D.

    Welcome, Emily!

    1. Stop trying to stop drinking;
    2. Pray to God as you understand God and ask for His will and direction in your life;
    3. Take the Steps freely shared in “Alcoholics Anonymous”, the book;
    4. Share with others what you learn about yourself and your relations to others and our Maker in our new-found manner of right fellowship and worship!

    I am looking for someone to guide me through the 12 steps online as the nearest aa meeting is 5 hours away. I have recently relapsed and I have manged to stay sober for the last six days. I have to be honest it has not been a very easy 6 days. I have been feeling extremely guilty, I have got literature like the fourth edition of the big book, the book twelve steps and twelve traditions, daily reflections. I am reading at the moment the chapter the doctors option and am reading the daily reflections in the mornings. I know I have to work the 12 steps but I do not know how at the moment. .

  3. Sarah Post author

    Hi, Kim.

    Sobriety is what makes an alcoholic feel the need for some sort of relief and/or solution, and we do offer that solution. It is natural to not know how to go about proceeding — none of us knew how — so please know there is help available!

    Here among us, we can certainly show you how to take the Steps, if upon examining Steps One and Two, you determine that is what you need and want to do. Consider the idea of *taking* the Steps — leave behind the idea of working them. Working them implies we are still toiling under our own ideas of how to get well using our own (human) power, which we come to understand we completely lack, for a self-determined objective or aim…*taking* the Steps is the act of accepting the new design for living and then being shown how to do so. This takes place once we have completely given up using/trying any of our own methods, and we are now “taking” that which is provided for us in order to get well as we walk the path with those of us who are doing and have done the same.

  4. Dolly

    Hi Kim iit seems like we are in a similar boat. Let’s continue on from here. I’m trying not to sabatoge myself and stay close to people with an answer.

  5. Dolly

    This is about the most straight forward answer one could get.
    I will copy this down and continue on and be happy to share it.
    Looking at step 3 now. It’s obvious it is better not to wait to do the steps. Definitey want to take step 3 with someone. Don’t want to let up on the steps as I’m ready now. It’s been 16 days. Yes and the goose hangs high I don’t want to lose this gift of an opportunity. to have a life….And I don’t want to return to that hell. Thanks Joe for being online and for being generous with your time and experience. Dolly

  6. Jeff

    My name is Jeff & I am an alcoholic. I have 17 days will be 18 tonight. About 4 yrs ago I had 6 yrs. Been struggling ever since. I’m retired & travel with my wife of 30+yrs.

  7. JoeO

    Hi, Jeff, and welcome to our site. We can help you figure out what happened and we can show you how we have truly recovered…and we are talking about something far beyond and much more effective than trying to “Don’t drink, one-day-at-a-time.” If we could “Don’t drink”, there would be no need for A.A. And so, it is at Step One that we stop trying to do what we cannot — Give up the fight — and then take the remainder of the Steps to have our problem removed.

  8. Dolly

    Hi Jeff ……I hope and pray you recover from this deadly illness. There are a couple of people in this group….. and apparently they have stayed sober. Surely if we do what they have done we will also recover. You are not alone!

  9. Scott smith

    I am trying to convince myself that I have to stop forever. I keep getting 2-3 days sober and then I crash. I am reluctant to get too involved in as because I do not want to explain it to my 8 year old. If I tell him I am an alcoholic and then go back out. He will be confused and or disappointed in me. I am disappointed in myself. Have one as friend that beats me down rather than pump me up. Can I get enough support online to skip out on meetings?

  10. JoeO

    Hi Scott. Becoming convinced we must stop altogether and forever is typically a conclusion we draw because we cannot guarantee control over our drinking while drinking. As someone had first observed many centuries ago:

    “First the drinker take a drink,” << an intellectual-emotional desire or obsession for the effect of alcohol
    “Then the drink takes a drink,” << caused by some abnormal body chemistry over which we have no mental control
    Then drink takes the drinker.” << early grave or "wet brain" (Organic Brain Syndrome) similar to syphilitic insanity
    Logic (as well as much of Today’s AA) suggests “Don’t take the first drink, one-day-at-a-time, and you cannot end up drunk”, but very few people ever actually stay sober that way. Instead, most just “Don’t take the first drink, one-day-at-a-time” until they end up drunk again…and then rinse-and-repeat until dead.
    Meetings can be optional as long as the Steps are taken, and we happen to be one of the few remaining groups that can show you how you can permanently recover from chronic alcoholism.

  11. Glenda

    Hi, I am new here. I am a student and doing research for class. I’m not an alcoholic, but my dad was. I don’t perceive to know the struggles that one goes through with an addiction. I do know this, I am a great listener. Thank you, Glenda

  12. sharon

    Hi Glenda, there are some really good people that can give you great info. Have you looked around the website? I am new. My sobriety date is 7/22/17. This is my 2nd time around. I relapsed and went downhill fast!

  13. sharon

    Most certain my first time with the real A.A. This is why I am feeling so good! I sure dind’t feel like this my “first” time around!

  14. Venessa

    My name is Venessa. I took what I want to be my last drink on the 16th so I’m on day 3. I’ve become a very angry drinker and took it to far.

  15. JoeO

    Hi, Vanessa. Anger has been a problem for many of us in the past, and that included drinking for relief of the pain we felt over people, places, things and situations that had made us angry. The Twelve Steps are our program of recovery where we learn new attitudes and actions in relation to everyone and everything around us in order to grow away from the need for the effect of alcohol. If you would like to know more about that and if you might want some help in understanding and doing what we have done, please know you are welcomed to send us an e-mail.

  16. Sue

    Today is my last day of drinking x I feel so ill and sick but got doctors appointment tomorrow and clinic already called me same day as blood tests to tell me major problem with liver my husband works away and am living in Poland x am frightened to drink and not to drink xx

  17. JoeO

    Hi, and we had exactly that same deal. We could no longer live with our drinking, and neither could we live without it. Trying to drink “just a few” to feel better without ending up drunk had become impossible, but for most of us it was just as impossible to go for more than a few days at a time without drinking. Removing the alcohol could eliminate our problems that came from drinking, but then removing the alcohol also exposed the problems that always drove us right back to drinking. If you wish, send us an e-mail and we will begin sharing with you precisely how we have recovered from that seemingly hopeless stat of mind and body!

  18. nnyMembers Post author

    Your e-mail address is being forwarded to a long-time recovered alcoholic group member who will contact you in return!

  19. Anna

    I am interested in joining this online chat. I am newly sober. (6 months) and am looking for an online meeting

  20. JoeO

    Hi, Anna. We are some true alcoholics who have permanently recovered from being “sufferingly-sober”, and this is a great place to hear the original A.A. message for people like ourselves who cannot “Don’t drink, one-day-at-a-time.”

  21. Hannah

  23. Members Post author

    Hi, Lisa! A desire to stop drinking or “want to stay sober” is our only membership requirement ever, and on of our female members here will contact you soon…

  24. Lacy

    I would like to take the online classes for aa please. It’s stipulations for my parole so I would need proof of attendance. I’m not sure how I would do that. Please help me…

  25. Lisa

    I’ve managed to stay sober three days now and feel pretty bad :). I actually don’t want to drink which is odd, but know I need help. I don’t believe in god, necessarily. Not sure what I believe. I know there’s benevolent and malevolent forces in the world. Was raised catholic and then baptized southern baptist. Parent both passed away and got no comfort or grief process guidance from so called religious community. Was single mother of middle schooler on my own. Started drinking to cope 6 years ago. Everyday.
    Thanks for reading
    Lisa B.

  26. Sarah B.

    Hi, Lisa! You have hit the nail on the head…being sober does not mean “feel good” for an alcoholic, even though we have the sense that we must quit, or at least we know we don’t want to drink. We *don’t* feel good, and that is why we return to drinking. Please know there is a solution, and yes, as you’ll read in our A.A. text, the solution does involve “God” (as each of us understands God). However, an honest acknowledgment of our own powerlessness in the face of our inability to control or quit our drinking and the simple willingness to move forward with the process described in our A.A. text, “Alcoholics Anonymous,” is how many of us begin, myself (a former atheist) included. Consider reading “The Doctor’s Opinion” and Chapters 2 and 3 in our A.A. text.

  27. lbisme55

    Hi Sarah!
    Thank you so much for your speedy reply:). I sure appreciate it. I’m feeling pretty alone in addition to crappy…lol
    I will have to get the books. And I am determined because there is something a gnawing need to feel normal (whatever that is) but I think keeping in touch will really help with people who’ve been there. Thanks again.

  28. Sarah B.

    Hi again, Lisa! Please ask any questions you might have about alcoholism and recovery, and browse our NoNameYet site as often as you like. Notice our meeting/chat times, and feel free to pop in on Monday evenings beginning at 7 p.m. Central Time and Wednesdays beginning at about 8:15 Central Time. The A.A. text, “Alcoholics Anonymous” (often called our “big book”), is the book that contains the description of alcoholism and the original program of recovery that has saved the very lives of so many of us. You can order online (, or you can find a used copy at most local used book stores.

  29. peter

    hi I have been sober some time and have done the 12 step program.but I would like another way to speak to like mined people.

  30. Sarah B.

    Hello, Peter! NoNameYet A.A. Fellowship Group has online chat meetings on Monday evenings beginning at 7 p.m. Central Time (-5 UTC/GMT) and on Wednesdays beginning at about 8:15 p.m. Central Time if you’d like to pop into Guest Chat on either or both of those evenings. Also, feel free to browse the site and post questions or comments using our Q&A or “contact us” features. Hope to see you in chat!!

  31. Sarah B.

    Hello, Arthur! We’re grateful you popped in and took a look at our website. We are a small group of recovered alcoholics, and we got that way by taking the 12 Steps just exactly as they are laid out in our “big book”, “Alcoholics Anonymous”. Join us any time, including our scheduled chat times: Mondays beginning at 7 p.m. Central Time, and Wednesdays beginning at about 8:15 p.m. Central Time.

  32. Anna

    Hello I am Anna and I am an alcoholic. I want the madness to end so I can have a good life and be good to those around me. I haven’t quit yet because I am terrified of withdrawal as I have been a heavy drinker for decades and detoxed once already 25 years ago. I am tapering down and finally didn’t have a hangover this morning and felt hopeful for once. I am isolating myself due to COVID-19. Not sure how to navigate this site, I want to do online meetings every day but I also just want to “listen” for now, too shy to say anything in the groups for now, is that okay? Not sure what group to join. Basically really confused except I do want my life back. Thank you whoever reads this!

  33. Sarah B.

    Hi, Anna! It’s good to hear from you. I have sent you an email so we can communicate one-on-one. The scheduled meetings in Guest Chat are on Monday evenings beginning at 7 p.m. Central Time (-6 UTC) and Wednesdays beginning at about 8:15 p.m. Central Time. Please feel free to join me, and possibly a few others, at either or both of those times. We can also set up other one-on-one chat times if you like.

    Alcohol is a condition of mind and body. Our bodies do not rightly process alcohol, which creates a physical craving beyond our ability to control, and we drink large and eventually deadly amounts of alcohol. Usually we see the trouble we are in and we decide to moderate. We find that impossible because of our “physical allergy”, which is incurable, and often we fear for our lives, so we decide to quit. We find ourselves unable to do that, either. Try as we may, we cannot, not drink! That is where we find we have no power over our condition. Our bodies cannot moderate, and our minds tell us we can! Often it takes us many years to realize we are powerless and cannot quit drinking and stay stopped.

    Regarding navigating our site, feel free to go to our home page and browse all you wish…this site is a wealth of information about alcoholism and recovery as described in our A.A. text, “Alcoholics Anonymous” — usually referred to as our “big book”. We are “real alcoholics”, people who cannot quit drinking, and the only solution many of us have found for permanent, contented sobriety has been to follow the precise instructions in our big book (the 12-Step “design for living”, a way of living and not just a class or a curriculum) and develop a relationship with Power greater than our fallible, finite human power (God as you understand God). The problem is then removed…it no longer exists for us.

    I look forward to chatting with you soon, Anna!

  34. Sarah B.

    You are welcome, Wendy, and please feel free to join us in either of our weekly Guest/Open Chats: Mondays beginning at 8 pm Eastern/7 pm Central/6 pm Mountain/5 pm Pacific time and/or Wednesdays beginning at about 9:15 Eastern Time.

    Hi, Jody!

  45. Sarah B.

    Hello, Kayla, and welcome to the NoNameYet A.A. Fellowship Group’s chat and website. Thank you for joining us tonight in our OpenGuest Chat room, and we hope to see you again!

  46. Bill B

    Hell, I’m Bill and I’m an alcoholic. I never really admitted to it before- I could stop anytime but then to just start again. this last summer I got in trouble again, thought I was doing very well since I had not gotten in trouble for drinking in over 6 years. Now I have been court ordered to attend AA monthly. I have been sober for about 2 1/2 months. My mind is set on goals and not clouded with random thoughts of alcohol.

  47. Sarah B.

    Hi, Bill, and welcome! We have an Open/Guest Chat discussion meeting tomorrow night (Wed., October 28) beginning at 9 p.m. Eastern Time if you wish to join us. I emailed you the sign-in details from our NoNameYet “contact us” feature.
    Alcoholism has just two symptoms: (1) No ability to control our drinking once we take alcohol into our systems, which is incurable, progressive and ultimately fatal, and, (2) No ability to quit and stay stopped, despite the necessity or the wish. That’s it. Just two symptoms.
    Our 12-Step recovery program is also simple, and at its core is the need for any alcoholic to experience and admit complete defeat. Step One: We admitted we were powerless over alcohol–that our lives had become unmanageable. The admission is one of powerlessness, not merely that we are alcoholic. We who suffer from chronic alcoholism cannot outthink, outsmart, or apply any better lifestyle techniques to overcome alcoholism. If we could, many of us would have been able to quit drinking years ago.
    For virtually every alcoholic, none of our human efforts or endeavors can keep us permanently away from alcohol. Why must we stay permanently away from alcohol? Because our incurable control problem (referred to as a “physical allergy” in our A.A. text, our “big book”) progressively worsens, and we must quit altogether or drink ourselves into alcoholic insanity (wet brain) or an early grave. …and that is the problem. Once we decide we must quit, we find ourselves unable to do so. We also have minds that lead us right back to drinking, and again, we cannot apply human endeavors to fix our minds. Many of us have tried!
    Thankfully there is a solution.
