Welcome to AA Biarritz

English-Speaking AA Meetings in South-West France

BAB Group – Biarritz / Anglet / Bayonne

What is AA? – The AA 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.

The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking. There are no dues or fees for AA membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions.

AA is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization, or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy, neither endorses nor opposes any causes.

Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety.

THE BASQUE COUNTRY

The French Basque region officially named Pays Basque, encompasses three provinces, Labourd, Lower Navarre and Soule, within the southwestern département of Pyrénées Atlantiques. The communities of Upper Navarre and the Basque Autonomous Community in neighbouring Spain complete Euskal Herria, as the wider Basque region is locally known.

The Basque language, known as Euskera. was outlawed as a means of communication during the Franco years, meaning everyone didn’t speak it in public, reducing the spread of the dialect through the population. An estimated 25 to 30 per cent of the current population does speak Euskera in some form today, with as many as 40 per cent of school children in the region now reported to be able to speak it – rising to an astonishing 90 per cent on the Spanish side of the border.

Euskera contains linguistic elements unlike anything in neighbouring France, Spain, or elsewhere in Western Europe. Basque sounds so alien. it finds striking similarities with dialects from much further afield, finding common linguistic traits with Arabic, Slavic, and even Japanese languages. How exactly Euskera evolved is still very much up for debate. Nevertheless, it neatly underlines how Basque culture has operated on the world stage for hundreds of years, producing individuals – such as 16th century explorers Juan Sebastián del Cano and Andrés de Urdaneta, respectively the first and second circumnavigators of the Earth – who left to take on the world.


SLOGANS

Spread friendliness. Greet people with a smile
When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be
Be patient with others, but mostly be patient with yourself
If you are not happy today, then what day are you waiting on?
My disease wants me dead. But, it will settle for low-grade misery.
Action may not bring happiness, but there is no happiness without action
The future comes one day at a time, Choice, not chance, determines destiny
Willingness is doing what I have to, whether I want to or not
Go the extra mile, it’s never crowded. Faith is the only known cure for fear.
The “Fellowship” is NOT the “Program” The Steps are the “Program”
No one cares how much you know, until they know how much you care
If you feel the need to get even, try getting even with those that have helped you
