Step Two

Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.

Tradition One

Our common welfare should come first; personal recovery depends upon AA unity.

Tradition Two

For our group purpose there is but one ultimate authority—a loving God as He may express Himself in our group conscience. Our leaders are but trusted servants; they do not govern.

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.

Step Ten

Continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong promptly admitted it.

Concept Three

To insure effective leadership, we should endow each element of A.A. —the Conference, the General Service Board and its service corporations, staffs, committees, and executives—with a traditional “Right of Decision.”

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.

Tradition Three

The only requirement for AA membership is a desire to stop drinking.

Concept One

Final responsibility and ultimate authority for A.A. world services should always reside in the collective conscience of our whole Fellowship.

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.

Step Nine

Made direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others.

Tradition Eight

Alcoholics Anonymous should remain forever nonprofessional, but our service centers may employ special workers.

November book of the month: Experience, Strength & Hope

Nov's Book AA 001

EXPERIENCE, STRENGTH & HOPE

Stories from the first three editions of Alcoholics Anonymous

This collection of stories offers back to the A.A. Fellowship the experience of 56 members whose stores are no longer available in the book of Alcoholics Anonymous.  There have been three revisions of the Big Book’s story section, and each time, as new stories were added to reflect A.A’s changing membership, others had to be dropped to make room for them. Over the years, more and more A.A. members requested a separate publication of these stories, and as the General Service Conference moved toward publication of a fourth edition of the Big Book, it concurrently asked for publication of this collection, which was approved in 2002.

Look back at the miracles that happened within A.A. in the early days of the group’s existence.  Read how some of the first members came to be in the rooms and how they learned to live their lives sober with the help of Alcoholics Anonymous.

This book is priced to sell and would make a great Christmas present to fellow members and friends.
