Several faiths and philosophical teachings have put forth writings that note the harm that can be caused by envy. It is seen as an emotion that results in misery. Aristotle refers to Envy as “the pain caused by the good fortune of others.” One of the first things we have to do to overcome our envy is to begin letting go of our resentments. We must look at the people we envy and try to view them through a lens constructed of kindness, compassion, empathy, and possibly even friendship. Tonight, we talk about Envy.

This means that it will be wise for people to learn how to cope with conflict as well as learn how to avoid it. Sometimes, avoiding this type of interaction can be negative, because it means the individual is refusing to face their problems.

When people in recovery talk about progress not perfection it does not mean that people should not be trying to be the best they can be.

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.

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?
