WELCOME TO A.A. (CORFU, GREECE )
Hi, the English speaking AA started on Corfu 2010. AA is here to help people with alcohol problems. If you think you or people dear to you may need help, that alcohol is causing problems in any way, manner or form, phone or email us - we'll try my best to help in any way we can.
At the moment, there's one AA meeting every Wednesday at 3pm in Corfu Town. Contact Wesley for details: +30 694 489 4484 (cell) or +30 26630 22970. Wesley will send you written details of the meeting and a map.
There's also an English-speaking Al-Anon group in Corfu that meets weekly.
Through sharing our experiences, strength and hope, we learn that no situation is hopeless and that we can find contentment and even happiness whether the alcoholic is still drinking or not. We would be so glad to welcome you to our group.
What Do We Do?
1. A.A. members share their experience with anyone seeking help with a drinking problem; they give person-to-person service or "sponsorship" to the alcoholic coming to A.A. from any source.
2. The A.A. program, set forth in our Twelve Steps, offers the alcoholic a way to develop
a satisfying life without alcohol.
3. This program is discussed at A.A. group meetings.
(a) Open speaker meetings - open to alcoholics and nonalcoholics. (Attendance at an open A.A. meeting is the best way to learn what A.A. is, what it does, and what it does not do.) At speaker meetings, A.A. members “tell their stories”. They describe their experiences with alcohol, how they came to A.A., and how their lives have changed as a result of Alcoholics Anonymous.
(b) Open discussion meetings - one member speaks briefly about his or her drinking experience, and then leads a discussion on A.A. recovery or any drinking-related problem anyone brings up. (Closed meetings are for A.A.s or anyone who may have a drinking problem.)
(c) Closed discussion meetings - conducted just as open discussions are, but for alcoholics or prospective A.A.s only.
(d) Step meetings (usually closed) - discussion of one of the Twelve Steps.
(e) A.A. members also take meetings into correctional and treatment facilities.
(f) A.A. members may be asked to conduct the informational meetings about A.A. as a part of A.S.A.P. (Alcohol Safety Action Project) and D.W.I. (Driving While Intoxicated) programs. These meetings about A.A. are not regular A.A. group meetings.

Al-Anon for Family & Friends
There is also a weekly Al-Anon meeting in Corfu town every Monday from 10.30am. The address is quite hard to find so we suggest you email: firstname.lastname@example.org or call +30 6934616181 a few days before the meeting so we can arrange to have a group member meet you in town. We look forward to welcoming you to our group!
