What is the AA program?

I am amazed by the number of people who think "Don't drink, and go to meetings, and everything will get better" is all there is to the program.

If I did just that, I would be drunk today. For me, the program is the Twelve Steps. There are many times I cannot attend a meeting. That is okay; I have the Steps to help me my life in balance.
