Here you will experience much historical and related information on the subject of Alcoholics Anonymous and Alcoholics Anonymous history. Officially begun on December 12th, 2000, silkworth.net is now in its twentieth year and is one of the largest sites of its type in the World – a repository, archive, you might say, of Alcoholics Anonymous History and related information.

There is still so much more work to be done on silkworth.net that I expect to be working on silkworth.net the rest of my life. Alcoholics Anonymous saved my life from certain death! There are Thousands of pages of information here and the site will continue to grow. It is hoped that your visit here will continue to be helpful to you and more importantly, be helpful to the new member of the Fellowship and the new visitors to silkworth.net.

A.A. Preamble

Alcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism.

3rd Step Prayer

God, I offer myself to Thee-
To build with me
and to do with me as Thou wilt.
Relieve me of the bondage of self,
that I may better do Thy will.
Take away my difficulties,

7th Step Prayer

My Creator,
I am now willing that

About Our New Design – August 2020

We know that you will have questions and queries about our new design for the website. So, here’s some information about it.

Since the last redesign in 2017, many members of a.a. contacted us and congratulated us for our work on making the website more friendly to alcoholics and addicts all over the world.

The site however lacked a strong search engine and aesthetic appeal. We also had some critical feedback that was taken on board with a positive mindset and we decided to rebuild the website with a much stronger, faster, and sleek looking framework. Having gone back to the drawing board early in 2020, we finally finished our work in August and voila! We hope you are happy with our work and will continue to support us in preserving the history of Alcoholics Anonymous.
