The 12 Expected Practices

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. The bible of Alcoholics Anonymous is the so called Big Book which contains the traditions.

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

  • Our shared welfare should be our first priority; individual recovery can only occur with the unity of the AA.
  • In our community purpose there is only one true authority - a loving and giving God that will depict Himself in our group conscience.
  • AA has trusted servants who share concerns with the led.
  • The will to give up drinking is the only condition for AA memberships.
  • AA member group is independent and only share with other member groups matters of mutual concern.
  • Getting the objective of the group to other ignorant alcoholics is the only goal of the group.
  • Each group/chapter abstains from activities that deviate from our single purpose and should never get involved with any financial or enterprising endeavours.
