Chandigarh, August 3 Victims of alcoholism need not wage a lonely losing battle against the fatal disease of alcoholism as recovery is possible through the Alcoholics Anonymous(AA), a worldwide fellowship of recovering alcoholics.
All a problem drinker has to do is to walk into Shivalik Public School, Sector 41,Chandigarh, on August 4 from 6 p.m onwards for a special meeting, being organized as part of the anniversary celebrations of the Disha Group of AA, to pass on the message of recovery to the still-suffering alcoholics.
Alcoholism is a progressive disease, which cannot be cured but which like some other illness, can be arrested. An alcoholic is not a bad man but a diseased man, an AA representative said here today.
A.A 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. There are no dues or charges for AA membership.
Help a phone call away….. The problem drinkers wanting to recover from alcoholism can dial AA helpline—94170-37358
