Sobriety to Go

As often happens, we learn the most in AA from listening to our newer members, and my home group recently experienced a new dimension of the Fifth Tradition because of it.

We have a periodic group inventory, every four to six months, so that we can stay healthy as a group. We use the Traditions as well as some of the questions from the "AA Group", pamphlet as our guide. We pick a separate night and spend three or four hours checking our group pulse. At one of these inventory sessions, we had gotten to the Fifth Tradition when a member who had been with us for five months or so spoke up.
