If you are new to the Alcoholics Anonymous program, you may have questions about common AA lingo. Many phrases and sayings began when founders Bob Smith (Dr. Bob) and Bill Wilson (Bill W.) started the program. Yet, other catchphrases used in the AA community started later after the inception of the program. Some AA terminology was created to protect the anonymity of the group members. For example, the term “Friends of Bill W” is employed to announce public AA meetings in public places (such as on cruise ships).
Other AA sayings were created to help group members remember some of the essential principles of the program. One example is “it works when you work it,” reminding AA members that recovery involves working the 12-Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous, signing up for volunteer work, and helping others, particularly newcomers, get sober. Call our helpline today if you would like to speak to someone about other treatment programs outside of AA, such as alcohol detox, inpatient and outpatient rehab.
