Alcoholics Anonymous Responsibility Statement:
“I am responsible . . .
When anyone, anywhere, reaches out for help,
I want the hand of A.A. always to be there.
And for that: I am responsible.”
The Twelve Steps of
Part of the recovery program that A.A. suggests
is set forth in the Twelve Steps.
Traditions of Alcoholics Anonymous
During its first decade, A.A. as a fellowship
accumulated substantial experience which indicated that certain group
attitudes and principles were particularly valuable in assuring survival of
the informal structure of the Fellowship.
The Preamble was composed by an editor of
the Grapevine and introduced in the June 1947 issue. It is read at almost
every AA meeting, function and convention.
Although the program of Alcoholics
Anonymous is not religious, the Serenity Prayer has come to be a simple way
to remind alcoholics of the AA way of life.
