Welcome to the website for English-speaking Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) based on the Costa Del Sol in Spain.

On here you will find relevant AA related information from the “AA Costa del Sol (CDS) Intergroup”. CDS intergroup is the forum where representatives from all the English-speaking AA groups on the Costa del Sol gather to coordinate common tasks.

In addition to this you will find information on AA as a whole – who we are, and what we do. There is a page with up-to-date details of all the AA meetings here on the coast. A section where you will find real life stories from AA members, and details on how to contact us.

If you would like further information on AA as a whole, or an organisation, if you are new or a professional, there is lots of useful material on the UK AA website www.alcoholics-anonymous.org.uk or please go to the website for English-speaking AA in Continental Europe alcoholics-anonymous.eu.

Need Help Now?

If you seem to be having trouble with your drinking, or if your drinking has reached the point where it worries you - you may be interested to know something about Alcoholics Anonymous and the AA 12 step program of recovery from alcoholism.

Am I an alcoholic?

If you repeatedly drink more than you intend or want to, or if you get into trouble when you drink, then you may be an alcoholic. No-one in AA will tell you whether you are or not, only you can decide. On this page are some questions that may help you.

About AA

AA stands for Alcoholics Anonymous. A fellowship of men and women who have discovered and admitted that we cannot control our use of alcohol. We have learned that we must live without it if we are to avoid disaster for ourselves and those close to us.


The AA Preamble

Alcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship of people who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism.

The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking. There are no dues or fees for AA membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions. AA is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organisation, or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy, neither endorses nor opposes any causes. Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety.
