The Twelve Traditions

The 12 traditions are slightly different to the 12 steps, they will speak with the Alcoholics Anonymous as a whole, instead of speaking to the individual. They are defined and described in the "Big Book", the main piece of literature the Alcoholics Anonymous have.

A number of 12-step groups have designed their own 12 traditions to suit their circumstance and recovery program.

  • Each individual group should be autonomous, only in situations that affect other parties of the AA as a whole will this need be accepted.
  • There is only one purpose per group, and that is the help those are still under the clutches of alcohol.
  • Each group/chapter abstains from activities that deviate from our single purpose and should never get involved with any financial or enterprising endeavours.
  • Each group is totally independent with no access to an external financial source.
  • While our activities may require having specialized professionals in our employment, the group itself does not lean towards professionals.
  • As a result, we should never be organized; but can pull together to make committees and serving boards in response to those they serve.
  • The AA name cannot be involved in public matters because Alcoholics Anonymous has no judgment on external things.
