Alcoholics Anonymous Donegal convention 17.10.13

YOU'RE better off going to AA pretending you're an alcoholic than sitting drunk in a bar pretending you're not.
That's the message from Alcoholics Anonymous who will hold their Donegal area convention this weekend.
The AA Donegal Area Convention will take place at Jackson's Hotel, Ballybofey, from Friday, October 18 until October 20. There will be open meetings at this event where you are welcome to come and hear about the programme and how it can help you, a loved one or a friend.
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, organisation or institution. It does not wish to engage in any controversy and neither endorses nor opposes any causes," the group said in a statement.
"Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety."
The first open meeting will be at 8pm on Friday evening and again at 12 noon on Sunday.
