Anonymity and Phone Meetings and Zoom On-Line AA Meetings
The Finger Lakes Area Intergroup would like to remind you that without the proper settings your anonymity may not be protected if you choose to participate in an on-line meeting.
GSO Recommendations for Zoom Meetings FROM AA NEW YORK CITY CENTRAL OFFICE
For Individuals – Your anonymity can be protected by not adding your last name as your screen name and also by turning the video feature off. Turning the video feature off also conserves internet bandwidth.

This is the Finger Lakes region Alcoholics Anonymous (A.A.) website which has been provided to help the person with a drinking problem and members of A.A. Although this website provides information regarding A.A., it is not intended to replace the importance of one alcoholic talking to another. This website contains our 24 hour hotline number 315-789-5955, some information about the Finger Lakes Area Answering Service (FLAAS), a schedule of area meetings, upcoming events in the A.A. community, and links to other helpful sites.
Is A.A. for you?
Only you can decide whether you want to give A.A. a try — or whether you think it can help you. We who are in A.A. came because we finally gave up trying to control our drinking. We still hated to admit that we could never drink safely. Then we heard from other A.A. members that we were sick. (We thought so for years!) We found out that many people suffered from the same feelings of guilt and loneliness and hopelessness that we did. We found out that we had these feelings because we had the disease of alcoholism.
We decided to try and face up to what alcohol had done to us. Here are some of the frequently asked questions about A.A. Remember, there is no disgrace in facing up to the fact that you have a problem.
