AA literature copyrights

Alcoholics Anonymous World Services, Inc. (“AAWS”) does not grant permission to reprint segments of its literature online, with the exception of overseas A.A. General Service Offices.

Please do not post material containing AA copyrighted literature. Posts violating copyrights will be removed.

You are allowed to link to literature on the AA site as long as you post the following disclaimer with your link:

Linked with the permission of Alcoholics Anonymous World Services, Inc.

Here is an example of an acceptable post.

Big Book Chapter 3

Linked with the permission of Alcoholics Anonymous World Services, Inc.

And then you can paraphrase.

Many of us made countless attempts to quit drinking before we finally admitted we were alcoholics. etc...


Here is the link to the Big Book first edition. The disclaimers are on the bottom of the page. If you quote material from the first edition please include in your post that it is quoted from the first edition. You may also include in your signature that all Big Book quotes are from the first edition to avoid having to write it every time you quote from the Big Book.

Big Book First Edition

Thank you for your cooperation.
Happiness is not an ultimate goal. Seeking happiness is a low goal. We seek a meaning that is deep enough to sustain us through tragedy. ~Jordan Peterson
