AA Grapevine

The AA Grapevine is the official international journal of Alcoholics Anonymous (AA). Readers can subscribe to the magazine either online or in print, as well as to the Spanish version, La Vina.

Founded in 1944, the journal is full of information for people recovering from alcohol abuse disorders using the 12-Step program of AA. A typical issue may contain stories and testimonials of members in different stages of recovery and articles on aspects of recovery such as relapsing or relationships. Every piece in the journal is written by an AA member, identified only by their first and last initial. Members refer to the Grapevine as “a meeting in print.”

“The Grapevine is the voice of the Alcoholics Anonymous movement,” said AA’s founder in 1946. “The Grapevine will enjoy perfect freedom of speech on all matters directly pertaining to Alcoholics Anonymous … There will be but one central purpose: The Grapevine will try to carry the AA message to alcoholics and practice the AA principles in all its affairs.”
