The Sole Purpose . . . Of The Group


The A.A. group, as such, cannot

take on all the personal problems

of it members . . . This is why

sobriety – freedom from alcohol –

through the teachings and

practice of A. A.’s Twelve Steps,

is the sole purpose of the group.”


As Bill Sees IT p 79


A, A, is ” not” an employment agency, a bank, a landlord,

a marriage counselor or any other social service.

The primary purpose of A.A is that the members will help

each other find recovery and give the member a new way of life

where they can learn to resolve their own problems,

usually best done with the aid of a Higher Power.

Recovery is to help the group maintain its primary purpose.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power
