Tradition One

Tradition One:

Our common welfare

should come first;

personal recovery

depends upon AA unity.


BB p 562



The program of AA is a “WE” program.

You tell me how you stayed sober today

and I’ll take from that experience, strength and hope

what I will need to keep me sober today and

then for me to keep it (my sobriety)

I must give it away to the next alcoholic

who seeks a life that is happy, joyous and free.

Without the group, without the fellowship

I will be doomed to return

to the abysmal sea of despair.

Today, support your group,

your sobriety depends upon it.

Recovery is one day at a time.

Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.


ME and the Boss


And, if no one has told you yet today,

God loves you and so do we.
