Blue Hill, Maine AA meetings
Blue Hill is a town in Hancock County, Maine. Those living or working in the area, with substance use disorder, may be interested in attending AA meetings in Blue Hill. Newcomers to the Alcoholics Anonymous program may have questions about many of the terms used by AA members, called AA lingo. One such term is “The Big Book.”
The Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous is the program’s primary text that spells out how to work the 12-Steps. The 12-Steps are a set of spiritual principles that when integrated into daily life, are said to remove one’s compulsion to drink alcohol. The Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous comprises the guiding principles of AA and other 12-step programs, such as Narcotics Anonymous and Al-anon. So, why is the Alcoholics Anonymous book called “The Big Book?” The book, infamous for its stories of how the early founders, and others, got sober, originally got its nickname after the First Edition was published. The First Edition of The Big Book had very thick, bulky pages, making it appear larger than its printed contents implied.
