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.

Concept One

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

Tradition Twelve

Anonymity is the spiritual foundation of all our Traditions, ever reminding us to place principles before personalities.

Tradition Three

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

Concept Ten

Every service responsibility should be matched by an equal service authority, with the scope of such authority well defined.

Tradition One

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

Tradition Nine

AA, as such, ought never be organized; but we may create service boards or committees directly responsible to those they serve.

Tradition Ten

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

Tradition Eight

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

Step Six

Were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character.

Step Ten

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

Step One

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

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.
