Does Aa Discourage Harm Reduction Practices?

Question by Zoe: Does aa discourage harm reduction practices?
I know the organization is for “anyone who wishes to stop drinking”, but how does it feel about harm reduction practices involving moderation. I want to over come my issues with alcohol that have been induced by depression and the pain it has caused me, but I am not ready and nor do i feel that I need to never drink again. I don’t necessarily want lifelong sobriety, but i do like the support of others who know how damaging alcohol can be. Will I be frowned upon by the organization in general if I attend meetings with this mentality…
