One of the famous sayings used by Twelve Step groups is that you have to give it away in order to keep it. What this is referring to is that service work can help the giver as much as the receiver.

The Big Book

The 12 and 12

24 Hours a Day

The Long form of Tradition 4 is:

With respect to its own affairs, each A.A. group should be responsible to no other authority than its own conscience. But when its plans concern the welfare of neighboring groups also, those groups ought to be consulted. And no group, regional committee, or individual should ever take any action that might greatly affect A.A. as a whole without conferring with the trustees of the General Service Board. On such issues our common welfare is paramount.

If groups are allowed to make mistakes, break tradition, how is AA still around?

“each group can manage its affairs exactly as it pleases, except when AA as a whole is threatened”.  Is this dangerous and/or foolish?  Why?

Why would there be danger in labeling your group “Communist” or “Catholic” or “Protestant” if that’s what the people in the group believe and share?

Have you ever been part of an AA group that exercised its right to be wrong?  And what did that look like?

How does Tradition 4 affect the new guy?
