About Alcoholics Anonymous Lima

We are English speaking members of AA in Lima. Some of us are here permanently, others live here for months at a time, and we are blessed at our meetings with the presence of tourists. We warmly invite you to join us.

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, organization or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy, neither endorses nor opposes any causes. Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety.

The History of Alcoholics Anonymous

Alcoholics Anonymous was founded in 1935 in Akron, Ohio, as the outcome of a meeting between Bill W., a stockbroker, and Dr. Bob S., an Akron surgeon. The two men set to work with alcoholics at Akron’s City Hospital where one patient quickly achieved complete sobriety.

Early in 1939, with about 100 members, the fellowship published it’s book, Alcoholics Anonymous, which is referred to as The Big Book.

The membership of AA is estimated to be about 2 million, with a presence in between 150 to 180 countries. AA maintains no records of actual members nor of attendance at meetings. The average length of continuous sobriety is 8 years.
