1. Do I share my concerns I have for the group welfare with other members of my
2. Do I participate in group business and group conscience meetings wherever I am?
3. Am I a good leader, serving my group according to the group conscience and not

11. When speaking at meetings do I keep to my personal story on alcoholism and my
recovery from alcoholism?
12. Do I practice placing principles before personalities in everything I do?
13. If a non-alcoholic comes to a closed AA meeting, do I lovingly take that person aside
and in a gentle and courteous manner explain that Alcoholic Anonymous is for recovery

recovery from alcoholism is on the right track.
If I have to debate any of these questions in my mind, I know there is something in my
thinking that is causing turmoil within myself. Most of the time, the solution has been
rereading and reapplying the Twelve Traditions to my complicated mind to get my
personal program of recovery strong and healthy again. By equally combining the
Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions, I no longer work half a program of recovery.
