Nicotine Anonymous® is a Twelve-Step fellowship of people helping each other to live our lives free of nicotine. Our recovery program uses the Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions adapted with permission from Alcoholics Anonymous. The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop using nicotine. Our fellowship defines "abstinence" as a state that begins when all use of nicotine ceases. There are no dues or fees, but we are self-supporting through our own contributions. In addition to the Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions, our program consists of five "tools"—meetings, sponsorship, literature, phone/email list, and service. 

Many nicotine users chose to end their use of nicotine with the help of nicotine withdrawal aids such as the nicotine patch, nicotine gum, or prescription medications. Use of such substances or products is up to each. Providing support in order to live free of nicotine is our Fellowship’s primary purpose, not how an individual member may choose to get free. (For more information, see the chapter on Tradition Ten in Nicotine Anonymous: The Book)
