When you search our website, you will see groups and meetings called Young People. These are attended by members who got sober under the age of 35. They provide a perspective on sobriety that can be a great resource. 

“Young people” are welcomed at every meeting of Alcoholics Anonymous. You will find that in A.A. we are always inclusive, never exclusive. Click here to learn more about A.A. Meetings and what to expect.

 It’s up to you to decide …… when your drinking has become a problem
Mental health care is not going to those who need it, study finds

Alcoholism is an illness. It can hit anyone: young or old.

It doesn’t matter how long you’ve been drinking, what you’ve been drinking or even how much. 

It’s what happens when you drink …… that could be the problem

Looking at your Drinking

Only you can decide whether you might have a problem with your own drinking. Here are some areas to consider if you think you may be an alcoholic.  Take a look at these 12 questions. 

  1. Do you drink because you have problems? To relax?
  2. Do you drink when you get mad at other people, your friends or parents?
  3. Do you prefer to drink alone, rather than with others?
  4. Are your grades starting to slip? Are you making a mess of your job?
  5. Did you ever try to stop drinking or drink less – and fail?
  6. Have you begun to drink in the morning, before school or work?
  7. Do you gulp your drinks?
  8. Do you ever have loss of memory due to your drinking?
  9. Do you lie about your drinking?
  10. Do you ever get into trouble when you’re drinking?
  11. Do you get drunk when you drink, even when you don’t mean to?
  12. Do you think it’s cool to be able to hold your liquor?

If you can answer yes to any one of these questions, maybe it’s time you took a serious look at what your drinking might be doing to you.
