Written information

There is a lot of free information about different aspects of AA. This includes introductory leaflets, the main book of Alcoholics Anonymous (often referred to as the ‘Big Book’) and other literature. We have provided a bit more background here.

The book of Alcoholics Anonymous can usually be purchased from meetings for around £10.00. It can also be accessed online and as audio files:
