Responsibility Statement

I am Responsible. When anyone, anywhere, reaches out for help, I want the hand of A.A. always to be there. And for that: I am responsible.

Welcome to The NCI WEBSITE!

Nature Coast Intergroup is your resource for Alcoholic's Anonymous information.  Check back often for news and updates for nature coast AA news.


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 A.A. membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions. A.A. 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.

An alcoholic recently said "I don't know why we need an Intergroup or a District or an Area or even the General Service conference. I don't need them - I have my group." I can only say to him what the late Bernard B. Smith, nonalcoholic, then chairperson of the board of trustees, and one of the architects of the Conference structure, answered that question superbly in his opening talk at the 1954 meeting:
"We may not need a General Service Conference to ensure our own recovery:
•We do need it to ensure the recovery of the alcoholic who still stumbles in the darkness one short block from this room.
• We need it to ensure the recovery of a child being born tonight, destined for alcoholism.
• We need it to provide, in keeping with our Twelfth Step, a permanent haven for all alcoholics who, in the ages ahead, can find in A.A. that rebirth that brought us back to life."
