Tradition Five

Each group has but one primary purpose—to carry its message to the alcoholic who still suffers.

Step Four

Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.

Step Five

Admitted to God, to ourselves and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.

Step Seven

Humbly asked Him to remove our shortcomings.

Concept Eight

The trustees are the principal planners and administrators of overall policy and finance. They have custodial oversight of the separately incorporated and constantly active services, exercising this through their ability to elect all the directors of these entities.

Concept Seven

The Charter and Bylaws of the General Service Board are legal instruments, empowering the trustees to manage and conduct world service affairs. The Conference Charter is not a legal document; it relies upon tradition and the A.A. purse for final effectiveness.

Tradition Ten

Alcoholics Anonymous has no opinion on outside issues; hence the AA name ought never be drawn into public controversy.

Concept Nine

Good service leadership at all levels is indispensable for our future functioning and safety. Primary world service leadership, once exercised by the founders, must necessarily be assumed by the trustees.

Step One

We admitted we were powerless over alcohol–that our lives had become unmanageable.

Step Three

Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood Him.

Tradition Seven

Every AA group ought to be fully self-supporting, declining outside contributions.

Concept Four

At all responsible levels, we ought to maintain a traditional “Right of Participation,” allowing a voting representation in reasonable proportion to the responsibility that each must discharge.

Literature Price Increase

1. As you may be aware, it is the policy of A.A. World Services, Inc, to review literature
prices every three years for any price adjustments that may be needed. Our last price
increase was on July 1, 2009, five years ago. On February 3, 2014, the General Service
Board accepted the A.A.W.S. Board’s recommendation for an increase in literature
2. Effective October 1, 2014 most book prices in the three languages of our Conference
(English, Spanish, and French) will be increased. Some examples of the increase are:
Alcoholics Anonymous 4th edition (Big Book) will increase $1.50, 12 X12 $1.50, As bill
sees it $1.00. and Living Sober $0.75
3. Districts 1 and 2 literature will increase soon after, in stock literature will not increase
until new orders are placed from GSO. When the updated literature order form appears
online, will indicate that the new prices have taken effect.

September book of the month: Happy, Joyous & Free

September book of the mth 001 (2)

Happy, Joyous & Free
The Lighter Side of Sobriety

AAs do laugh a lot – at themselves, their drinking histories, and their initial stumbles through the Steps. We may not have felt much like laughing in the beginning. We may have been depressed, or physically sick. We may have caused a lot of damage that we knew would take a while to repair. And we may have felt agonizingly lonely. But the first time we heard someone get up in front pf a meeting and share about some embarrassing drinking event or some embarrassing sober event-we couldn’t help but laugh along with them. If someone else did what I did and is joking about it now, we thought, maybe I’m not that bad.

This collection of stories from AA Grapevine shows how, in recovery, AAs learned to laugh.
