Please enter your information below if you have any questions or you want to know about Alcoholics Anonymous.  Please tell us how we can be of service!

NOTICE:  This has been rough times for in-person AA.  We strongly encourage anyone to call someone you know in the program if you are struggling.  If you're new to AA please call the hotline:  (541) 624-5117.  


And consider an online meeting if you can't make it to an in-person meeting.  It may not be 100 percent the same, but it helps to keep in touch with people and avoid isolation.  The Schedule Page has links to the online meetings under the regular schedule.

10 quotes from the Alcoholics Anonymous Big Book!

1. “Those events that once made me feel ashamed and disgraced now allow me to share with others how to become a useful member of the human race.” p.492

2. “Many of us felt that we had plenty of character. There was a tremendous urge to cease forever. Yet we found it impossible. This is the baffling feature of alcoholism as we know it – this utter inability to leave it alone, no matter how great the necessity or the wish.” p.34


3. “Men and women drink essentially because they like the effect produced by alcohol. The sensation is so elusive that, while they admit it is injurious, they cannot after a time differentiate the true from the false. To them, their alcoholic life seems the only normal one.” p.xxvii

4. “The idea that somehow, someday he will control and enjoy his drinking is the great obsession of every abnormal drinker.” p.30

5. “Our liquor was but a symptom. So we had to get down to causes and conditions.” p.64

6. “When I am disturbed, it is because I find some person, place, or situation – some fact of my life – unacceptable to me, and I can find no serenity until I accept that person, place, thing, or situation as being exactly the way it is supposed to be at this moment.” p.417

7. “I listened to their stories and found so many areas where we overlapped – not all the deeds, but the feelings of remorse and hopelessness. I learned that alcoholism isn’t a sin, it’s a disease.” p.344

8. “We talked of intolerance, while we were intolerant ourselves. We missed the reality and the beauty of the forest because we were diverted by the ugliness of some of its trees.” p.50

9. “Adversity truly introduces us to ourselves.” p.530

10. “When I am willing to do the right thing I am rewarded with an inner peace no amount of liquor could ever provide. When I am unwilling to do the right thing, I become restless, irritable, and discontent. It is always my choice.” p.317
