Tradition Four

more 024


“Each group

should be autonomous

except in matters

affecting other groups

or A.A. as a whole.”


BB p 564


Always remember rule number 62.

“Don’t take yourself too damn seriously.”

( page 149 , Tradition Four in the book

Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions)

There are no rules, just the traditions to guide

the groups as to how to conduct their business.

The group conscious becomes the brains

and the backbone of the local group and

subsequently the heartbeat of Alcoholics Anonymous.

Today, study the traditions and do your part to give back

that which has been so freely given to you.

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.
