Learning about our Traditions

The writer of “What’s Best for the Group” says she’s still learning a lot about AA’s Traditions, even thought she’s been sober for a while. She shares an example about Tradition One at one of her group’s business meetings, which changed the way she votes. 

Have you had an experience like this at a business meeting? What are some things you’ve learned about the Traditions? Do you participate in your group’s business meetings? Do you go to Traditions meetings? How does it help you? Do you have a favorite Tradition? Have the Traditions helped you in your personal life?

You may use this topic in a discussion meeting, or pick one of the Traditions and send us a story of your own (or your group’s) experience with it at
