AA Meetings in New Jersey

How New Jersey AA Meetings Can Help You Stay Sober

The program of Alcoholics Anonymous began in the 1930s, so it’s been around for nearly 100 years. There are countless people around the world who were once seemingly hopeless in their active addiction who found a better way to live through the program of Alcoholics Anonymous. The program first started in Akron, Ohio, but due to its success, there are not only meetings all over the United States, but you can find meetings all over the world. Whether you’re struggling with getting sober or staying sober, AA meetings in New Jersey can help.

Who Needs AA Meetings in New Jersey?

One of the most difficult things a person can do is admit to themselves that they have a problem with alcohol or drugs. The disease of addiction is cunning, and it’s the only disease that makes you think that everything is fine. Due to how the disease works, many people become slaves to alcohol or drugs without even realizing they have a problem. Some questions to ask yourself if you’re not sure if you have a problem include the following:

  • Once you start drinking, can you stop?

  • Have you ever told yourself you were only going to have a limited amount of drinks, but you drank more than you planned?

  • Has your drinking cause problems with your work or home life?

  • Have friends or family members ever commented on the amount that you drink?

  • Do you ever miss important events due to your drinking?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, you’re not alone. The program of Alcoholics Anonymous classifies those with an addiction as people who have a mental obsession and physical craving. The physical craving kicks in once you start drinking, so you lose control and can’t stop when you want to. The obsession causes you to make drinking your top priority and think about it constantly. Luckily, AA meetings in Ocean County, Gloucester County, Camden County and other areas of New Jersey can help.

What are AA Meetings in New Jersey Like?

There are a lot of misconceptions about AA meetings, but they’re simply a meeting of men and women who identify as alcoholics who share their experience, strength, and hope with one another. Many people struggling with a drug or alcohol addiction feel extremely lost and alone, but hearing others share their stories is extremely beneficial. Not only do you discover that you’re not alone in your struggles, but you also hear people share solutions that have helped them stay sober one step at a time.

Although AA meetings are helpful, you should never try to detox on your own. Different 12-step programs are incredible at helping you stay sober, but you need medical help in order to safely come off of alcohol or drugs.
