About Us

The Sober She Devils is an international secular online women’s meeting of Alcoholics Anonymous (AA). This is a closed meeting of AA, welcoming any woman who has a desire to stop drinking.

All are Welcome

We recognize that not everyone believes in god or even a higher power; we want to create a safe place for women to express themselves regardless of their world views, beliefs, religion, spiritual experience or rejection of them.

If you are not sure you are an alcoholic or not sure you want to stop drinking, please refer to the online secular beginner’s meetings listed below or locate an “open” meeting in your local AA directory. This meeting is designated “closed” in order to keep it safe for women who know they desire sobriety and who need to feel confident that the others in the group desire the same.

History

In 2017, John S. of AA Beyond Belief hosted a secular Zoom meeting at 1 PM Eastern on Sunday afternoon (AABeyondBelief.org). A group of women attending those meetings started having informal chats following the meetings. During one of the post-meeting chats, one of them exclaimed, “Wouldn’t it be great to have a secular women’s meeting?” Shortly thereafter, it happened! The first online secular women’s AA meeting was hosted on September 11, 2017. Then, on January 29, 2018 the Sober She-Devils name was adopted.

Secular Recovery Group

The Sober-She Devils are grateful for the support of the administrators of The Secular Recovery Group. In addition to providing links to secular meetings for people in recovery, the Secular Recovery Group site was “created to allow authors and persons seeking recovery from substance abuse, a place to share experiences outside the constraints of religiosity.” It contains helpful information about recovery from a secular lens, including thoughtful blog posts. We encourage you to check it out!
