    ===============

    AA Meeting Preamble
     

    Alcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism.
     

    The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking.
     

    There are no dues or fees for A.A. membership, we are self-supporting through our own contributions. A.A. is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization, or institution, does not wish to engage in any controversy, neither endorses nor opposes any causes.
     

    Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety.

    ===============

    The Twelve Traditions:

     

    1 Our common welfare should come first; personal recovery depends upon AA unity.
     

    2 For our group purpose there is but one ultimate authority - a loving God as He may express Himself in our group conscience, our leaders are but trusted servants; they do not govern.
     

    3 The only requirement for AA membership is a desire to stop drinking.

    4 Each group should be autonomous except in matters affecting other groups or AA as a whole.
     

    5 Each group has but one primary purpose-to carry its message to the alcoholic who still suffers.
     

    6 An AA group ought never endorse, finance or lend the AA name to any related facility or outside enterprise, lest problems of money, property and prestige divert us from our primary purpose.
    ===============

    7 Every AA group ought to be fully self-supporting, declining outside contributions.
     

    8Alcoholics Anonymous should remain forever nonprofessional, but our service centres may employ special workers.

    9 AA, as such, ought never be organized; but we may create service boards or committees directly responsible to those they serve.
     

    10 Alcoholics Anonymous has no opinion on outside issues; hence the AA name ought never be drawn into public controversy.
     

    11 Our public relations policy is based on attraction rather than promotion; we need always maintain personal anonymity at the level of press, radio, and films.

     

    12 Anonymity is the spiritual foundation of all our traditions, ever reminding us to place principles before personalities.

    ===============

    The Twelve Steps
     

    1 We admitted we were powerless over alcohol - that our lives had become unmanageable.
     

    2 Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.
     

    3 Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood Him.
     

    4 Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.
     

    5 Admitted to God, to ourselves and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.
     

    6 Were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character.
    ===============

    7 Humbly asked Him to remove our shortcomings.
     

    8 Made a list of all persons we had harmed and became willing to make amends to them all.
     

    9 Made direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others.
     

    10 Continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong promptly admitted it.
     

    11 Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God as we understood Him, praying only for knowledge of His will for us and the power to carry that out.
     

    12 Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to alcoholics and to practice these principles in all our affairs.

    ===============

    The promises of AA are as follows:

     

    If we are painstaking about this phase of our development, we will be amazed before we are halfway through.

    We are going to know a new freedom and a new happiness.

    We will not regret the past nor wish to shut the door on it.
     

    We will comprehend the word serenity and we will know peace.
     

    No matter how far down the scale we have gone, we will see how our experience can benefit others.
     

    That feeling of uselessness and self-pity will disappear.
     

    We will lose interest in selfish things and gain interest in our fellows.

    ===============

    Self-seeking will slip away.

    Our whole attitude and outlook upon life will change.

    Fear of people and of economic insecurity will leave us.

    We will intuitively know how to handle situations which used to baffle us.

    We will suddenly realise that God is doing for us what we could not do for
    ourselves.
     

    Are these extravagant promises? We think not. They are being fulfilled among us—sometimes quickly, sometimes slowly. They will always materialize if we work for them.

    ===============

    Just for Today Card

     

    Just for today I will try to live through this day only, and not tackle my whole life problem at once. I can do something for twelve hours that would appal me if I felt that I had to keep it up for a lifetime.
     

    Just for today I will be happy. Most folks are as happy as they make up their minds to be.

     

    Just for today I will adjust myself to what is, and not try to adjust everything to my own desires. I will take my ‘luck’ as it comes and fit myself to it.

     

    Just for today I will try to strengthen my mind. I will study. I will learn something useful. I will not be a mental loafer. I will read something that requires effort, thought and concentration.

     

    Just for today I will exercise my soul in three ways: I will do somebody a good turn, and not get found out; if anybody knows of it, it will not count. I will do at least two things I don’t want to do —just for exercise. I will not show anyone that my feelings are hurt; they may be hurt, but today I will not show it.

    ===============

    Just for today I will be agreeable. I will look as well as I can, dress becomingly, talk low, act courteously, criticise not one bit, not find fault with anything and not try to improve or regulate anybody except myself.

     

    Just for today I will have a programme. I may not follow it exactly, but I will have it. I will save myself from two pests: hurry and indecision.

     

    Just for today I will have a quiet half hour all by myself and relax. During this half hour, sometime, I will try to get a better perspective of my life.

     

    Just for today I will be unafraid. Especially I will not be afraid to enjoy what is beautiful, and to believe that as I give to the world, so the world will give to me.

    ===============

     

    Serenity Prayer
     

    God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,

    the courage to change the things I can,

    and the wisdom to know the difference.
