The Deal Mens Group


An Australian

mens group of Alcoholics Anonymous

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.  We are not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organisation or institution.


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


At The Deal we have a strong message of the program of recovery, a firm focus on the Steps and an entrenched network of support.  If are you reading this you might just be fighting for your life – we know each of us in the group have been, so if you want to lift your head up and reclaim your life, you are making a great start by reading this.


Alcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope for free and for fun so that other alcoholics may recover through the solution we have found to our common problem: Alcoholism.


Every single one of us was new to AA at some point in our journey and although we didn't arrive in the same ship, we are all in the same boat now. We have members as young as 18 years of age spanning to members in their 80's. Sobriety starting from a handful of days to a member with 44 years.


The Men at the deal come from a wide range of cultural backgrounds, creeds, race and faiths but stand together in the face of our common problem: Alcoholism.


Together we support each other in working the solution to Alcoholism: The 12 steps of Alcoholics Anonymous.


 We learn about the action we need to take in order to recover through our basic text from which the fellowship acquired its name: The Big Book of "Alcoholics Anonymous".


Shares that are recorded at our weekly Sunday meeting at

611 High st Armadale.


These shares include members ranging from a few months sober to 44 years sober, sharing their experience, strength and hope on what it was like before they came to AA, What they did when they arrived in recovery and what their life is like today.

The 9th step promises

The clutches of alcoholic addiction are a terrible thing, ‘the great dissolver’ (of marriages, homes, families, lives, finance and health) as it is known in the fellowship.


Through taking on the suggested program of recovery – getting a home group, attending regular meetings and getting a sponsor – you are promised the following 12 things, though remember, you cannot expect to understand how it will feel right now, because as the 1st promise says, it will be ‘new’ to you.



Here are some resources that we use to help maintain our recovery.


These resources have been comprised of our experience in recovering from alcoholism and the actions that help maintain that recovery on a daily basis.
