An alcoholic is someone who has lost control of their drinking. They find it impossible to stop despite the consequences that come with their drinking. My podcast "The Message of AA" addresses this and how AA can help. And AA does believe in total abstinence; however I've seen many situations where the person has not been able to quit. They struggle and we try to help. The purpose of AA is to stay sober and help others achieve sobriety. Anyone is welcome at open meetings and we ask if that only those with the desire to stop drinking attend closed meetings. Disclaimer: I accept absolutely no payment of any kind for the podcast. Again, we are here to help.
