What is Alcoholics Anonymous?
Alcoholics Anonymous, also known as AA, was founded in 1935 by Bill Wilson and Bob Smith. In 1939, they wrote “The Big Book” of AA and officially started the organization. Today, AA is one of the biggest organizations in the world to help people to quit drinking alcohol. Alcoholics Anonymous speakers in AA meetings and conventions all over the world have shared their stories and messages of hope. And now, with the internet, you can stream or download an Alcoholics Anonymous podcast to hear these great talks from the convenience of your home or car. Alcoholics Anonymous audio has transcended the live meeting and is now available everywhere.
How do I find a good Alcoholics Anonymous podcast?
This is an excellent question. First, I recommend staying away from the frequent “war stories”. If you find that a particular podcast is filled with endless stories about what it was like to drink or use drugs but nothing about how to get clean and sober, you may want to avoid it. If you are listening to Alcoholics Anonymous audio and there is nothing about how to have a happy, fulfilling life without the use of drugs or alcohol, it may not be for you. I recommend looking for podcasts that feature Alcoholics Anonymous speakers who share messages of hope. Spirituality is also a great topic covered on many Alcoholics Anonymous podcast episodes.
Where is the best place to find AA audio?
Even before podcasts became popular, there have been various sites online where you could download audio files of Alcoholics Anonymous speakers from meetings and conventions of the past. In fact, some speakers recorded themselves individually and distributed the Alcoholics Anonymous audio to friends with instructions to pass the recordings along to others. Now, you can find a wealth of great recovery podcasts available right in your favorite podcast app, available for streaming and downloading anytime, at your convenience.
