Secular AA Meetings Online

Online AA meetings are a great option for those who are not able to attend a face-to-face meeting, or who enjoy the convenience of logging into a meeting from the comfort of their home. These meetings are particularly helpful to those of us who prefer a secular format—an AA meeting without group prayers and that welcomes an agnostic and atheistic perspective. And though, the number of secular AA meetings has increased significantly over the past few years, these meetings still make up only a tiny fraction of all available AA meetings. In fact, most AA’s don’t have the option of attending a secular meeting, and many more don’t even know they exist. The online meetings listed on on our events page offer a vital lifeline to the still suffering alcoholic as well as for those people in AA who are put off by the god bit. 

The technology used for online meetings can vary. There are audio/video meetings that use the conferencing service Zoom, which is super easy to use and provides excellent quality. When using Zoom, a meeting attendee can call in on their cell phone, landline, they can use a tablet, laptop or desktop. The video is completely optional, so if a person doesn’t feel comfortable on camera, it’s totally okay to keep the camera off. AA Beyond Belief offers its Zoom account for anyone interested in hosting a meeting. Just send an email to john@aabeyondbelief.org and we will get you set up. After you get the meeting going, be sure to list it on the AA Beyond Belief events page.  

The Skype meetings are among the longest running of the online meetings and only require the Skype software and that’s it. These meetings prefer that callers not use video because it helps improve the quality of the call. You can read about one of the Skype meetings in this article posted at AA Beyond Belief  in 2016: Secular AA Beginners Meeting on Skype

Another audio/video option is the website In the Rooms which offers a secular AA meeting hosted by the Orlando secular AA group Our Mostly Agnostic Group of Drunks (OMAGOD). This meeting has been going on for a couple of years  now and is quite popular. It’s a larger meeting than the Zoom or Skype meetings and it’s just as easy to use as Zoom or Skype. All you need to do is create an account on In the Rooms and you are set.

In addition to the audio/video meetings, there are also google groups and email groups that provide support for the person who is seeking a secular experience in Alcoholics Anonymous.

Unfortunately I don’t have Facebook. I have tried many different avenues and had a friend send a request to Sheila but have not had any luck.

Online Secular AA meetings work great . . . at least they do for me. They work so well, in fact, that I’ve increased my meeting participation from a meeting a week to one or more meetings a day. I get to hear perspectives on sobriety from people all over the country and all around the world. It’s like having a front row seat at a mini International Secular AA Conference. I love it!

Am disabled and not able to drive long distance to A.A. meetings anymore.  Finding on-line support is an awesome way to attend meetings.  Women friends in A.A. in Tulsa, Oklahoma are very good support over the phone.  The best A.A. meeting is 75 miles away.  That is why I am here.

I believe in a higher power, but lately feel I’,be been drafted into a service-,only life. I used to enjoy my nu life & helped others when I wanted. I didn’,t feel guilty putting my life 1st. Now ,I’ m mzde to feel guilty for enjoying life. Maybe cause I need many meets & service is the topic. Can’t cut or change meets, but is uphill not to feel  as though I shouldn’t live my life.
