Very Much So: Aa is precisely for alcohol abuse. You can always attend a few meetings and decide for yourself. Call it curiosity, call it data gathering, call it courage. See if the stories you hear in the rooms strike a cord with your own tale. The life you save may be your own. Aa has no enrollment, no commitment to a religion, is free of charge, and as anonymous as you wish. Try it ; let me know. Good luck!
