Traditions Study

“A.A.’s Twelve Traditions apply to the life of the Fellowship itself. They outline the means by which A.A. maintains its unity and relates itself to the world about it, the way it lives and grows.”

Each Tradition Contains:

  • The Tradition (Short Form)
  • The Tradition (Long Form)
  • The Tradition’s Overriding Idea
  • The Tradition’s Reading Assignment
  • The Tradition’s Spiritual Principle
  • A Brief Summary About the Tradition
  • A Step-Tradition Parallel
  • Tradition’s Illustrated
  • The Tradition’s Inventory
  • The Tradition’s Checklist

Second Legacy:

Our second of three legacies is UNITY. The Traditions represent the principles which support the unity of the AA fellowship at the group level.
