Many AA meetings read what is called the Tools of Recovery at the beginning of the meeting.
We commit ourselves to stay away from the first drink, one day at a time.
We attend A.A. meetings to learn how the program works, to share our experience, strength and hope with each other, and because through the support of the fellowship, we can do what we could never do alone.
A sponsor is a person in the A.A. program who has what we want and is continually sober. A sponsor is someone you can relate to, have access to and can confide in.
The telephone is our lifeline — our meeting between meetings. Call before you take the first drink. The more numbers you have, the more insurance you have.
The Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous is our basic tool and text. The Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions and A.A. pamphlets are recommended reading, and are available at this meeting.
Service helps our personal program grow. Service is giving in A.A. Service is leading a meeting, making coffee, moving chairs, being a sponsor, or emptying ashtrays. Service is action, and action is the magic word in this program.
Whom you see here, what you hear here, when you leave here, let it stay here. Anonymity is the spiritual foundation of our program.
