Tradition Ten

“Alcoholics Anonymous

has no opinions

on outside issues;

hence the A.A. name

ought never be drawn

into public controversy.”


Twelve and Twelve p 176



Mother always said, “When in mixed company

with a group of people that you do not know,

never bring up the topics of politics or religion.”

The founders of A. A. listened well to their mothers.

The members of A. A. come together anonymously

to combat their common enemy, John Barleycorn,

and to discuss their united efforts to stay sober.

In A. A. , what you hear here, who you see here,

let it stay here,

what you do in the outside world

is your own business

and never the twain should meet.

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.
