We Obey

.

.

“The A. A. traditions

are neither rules,

regulations nor laws.

We obey them willingly

because we ought to

and because we want to.”

.

As Bill Sees It p 319

The Twelve Steps are to keep the alcoholic from killing himself.

The Twelve Traditions are to keep the alcoholics from killing each other.

More suggestions.

For over eighty years A.A. has helped millions of alcoholics achieve sobriety

and if we continue to follow these few simple suggestions, hopefully,

there will be many more millions to come.

If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.

Recovery is being willing to obey a few simple suggestions.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.

Unified We Live

.

“As sobriety means

long life and happiness

for the individual,

so does unity mean

exactly the same thing

to our Society as a whole.

Unified we live;

disunited we shall perish.”

As Bill Sees It     p 229

.

The Twelve steps are to keep me from killing myself.

The Twelve Traditions are to keep us from killing each other.

There are no leaders, only trusted servants, and it behooves

each and every one of use to serve the fellowship

in any way that we can.

It may be the greeter, the coffee maker, the secretary,

District rep., Area rep., or whatever effort one can make

to keep the fellowship united and able to carry out

the primary purpose, to carry the message

to the still sick and suffering, is greatly needed.

Today, get into AA, not just around it.

Recovery is supporting the unity of the fellowship.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.
