Well, one alternative is to come to a forum like this to join in discussions about recovery.

There are other things...

If someone (with a drinking problem) cannot attend regular AA meetings, an alternative is to get a copy of Alcoholics Anonymous, the basic textbook of AA. Starting to read it would be a good thing..

A chap called Ian McE, in New Zealand, was sent a big book from New York in 1946. He also exchanged a few letters with NY over the next couple of years, remembering that it took many weeks for a letter to be delivered. He rad the book and began putting the suggestions about working with others into effect. He was able to stay sober doing this, though it was two years before the first AA group was formed in New Zealand in 1948. It took him that long to find another alcoholic who wanted to recover. Ian sponsored Irvan, who sponsored David, who sponsored me. All of them found permanent recovery as a result of working with others, not attending meetings.

Besides reading AA approved lit . I also read a lot of other literature as well , about AA.

I also have a good collection of historical stuff about AA starting in Australia . I believe I owe it to people that

will follow , as I knew a lot of those old timers before they passed . Other than that I will read other spiritual literature.

Or Meditate . Either . I am quite comfortable with.

If someone (with a drinking problem) cannot attend regular AA meetings, an alternative is to read what is online at AA's website. There is much information about all aspects of AA and the AA program there. Just go to:

http://aa.org

I would still suggest that you try to get to a few meetings, and at least get some contacts, or even a sponsor. You may not be able to meet up with the sponsor but you can text, email or call to work through the steps. That would be the most beneficial in your situation, I think.

My  early sponsor gave me a summary of the steps when I wasn't in AA and trying to keep the fellowship out of my hair.  He said...#1 - 3...Trust God    #4 - 11...Clean House #12  Help Others.  If I include this with what has also been mentioned and add "Don't drink" ...I am on my way.   Good Share.   aww
