. . . .On the 12th Tradition
To preserve harmony, let us respect our anonymity
ALCOHOLICS Anonymous Traditions admonish us that to preserve harmony and to enhance the survival value of our movement, we should seriously respect the anonymous aspect of the Program.
In Main Street America it is more difficult to remain anonymous, but many small town groups have found by trial and error that anonymity should be encouraged at all times.
All too often in groups we find members violating this Tradition, many, no doubt, because of lack of knowledge as to just how important anonymity is to us and why it should be respected.
