Tradition Six

hot august 001


“An  A. A.  group

ought never endorse,

finance, or lend

the  A. A.  name

to any related facility

or outside enterprise,

lest problems of money,

property, and prestige

divert us from our primary purpose.”


Twelve and Twelve   p 155


Even though the program of Alcoholics Anonymous

is a “we” program, each individual,

as a part of the group conscious,

is responsible for being there

if and when anyone reaches out for help,

and this is our primary purpose.

No clubs, hospitals, charity drives, soup kitchens

nor any other institution or organization

needs the A. A. name.

Members of A. A. need to stay sober and remember that

anonymity is the spiritual foundation

of all of our traditions.

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.
