AA Resources & LinksInvaluable resources, tools and literature to support your recovery journey! Together, using the tools, we can overcome our shared challenges and build a life filled with hope, sobriety, and fulfillment in a safe and loving environment.

In addition to our meetings, AA offers a range of resources and tools to support your journey. 

Our literature, such as the Big Book, the 12 and 12, and Living Sober   provides invaluable guidance and insight into the process of recovery.  

Alcoholics Anonymous in Manitoba (Area 80) also offers great resources such as Find a Meeting in Manitoba, Literature and Events.

We also have mentors and sponsors who can offer one-on-one guidance and support, and I encourage you to reach out if you would like to be connected with someone who can help.

Please remember that anonymity is a vital aspect of our program. We respect your privacy and the confidentiality of your participation in AA. What is shared within our fellowship stays within our fellowship. Your identity and story are safe with us.

The  AA Service Manual  opens with history of A.A. services, then explains the General Service Conference structure and its year-round importance. Chapters cover the roles of GSRs, DCMs, delegates, directors and trustees, as well as what happens at GSO and Grapevine. The Twelve Concepts for World Service, written by A.A. co-founder Bill W., are an interpretation of A.A.’s world service structure as it emerged through A.A.’s early history and experience.

Is drinking getting the better of you?  There is hope.

Lots of exciting events are coming up this fall.


If you are interested in becoming a voting member of Recovery 1st and receive announcements & meeting minutes, please simply send an email with your sobriety date, name and email address to: recovery1aagrp@gmail.com


For your own safety, please don’t share your phone number or email address with everyone in the general chat.  Rather, if you send it, send it as a private message.

For your own protection, here is the link to the AA safety card: https://www.aa.org/sites/default/files/literature/f-211_en_0422.pdf 


Any person seeking help with a drinking problem is welcome at this group. No A.A. entity determines an individual’s membership in Alcoholics Anonymous. It is this group’s conscience that if any person endangers another individual or disrupts the group’s efforts to carry A.A. message, the group may ask that person to leave the meeting.

This group strives to safeguard the anonymity of A.A. members and attendees; however, keep in mind that anonymity in A.A. is not a cloak for unsafe and illegal behavior. Addressing such behavior and/or contacting the proper authorities when appropriate, does not go against any A.A. Traditions and is meant to ensure the safety of all in attendance.


If you are willing to sponsor, or be a temporary sponsor please add an asterisk * = available to sponsor or  t* = temporary sponsor, in front of your name. 

Anyone looking for a sponsor, feel free to reach out to folks who indicate they are open to sponsoring. 

If you have any questions about Sponsorship ask a Recovery 1st member or check out this pamphlet Questions and Answers on Sponsorship:

Tradition 7
“Every A.A. group ought to be fully self-supporting, declining outside contributions.”  
This means that only A.A. members contribute financially to A.A. – and even A.A. members are limited in the amount they can contribute. 
This keeps A.A. free of outside influences that might divert us from our primary purpose — to help the alcoholic who still suffers. 

We are self-supporting through our own contributions. Please contribute to Email address:  recovery1stcontributions@gmail.com   via e-transfer or via PayPal using the following link:  PayPal.Me/Recovery1st7thTrad
