The 12 traditions are:

  • The victory over addiction of a member is determined by our collective efforts, as the interest of the group takes precedence over any interests.
  • The ultimate authority of our group rests in one God and let it be manifested in our group's conscience.
  • AA has trusted servants who share concerns with the led.
  • The readiness to quit alcoholic beverages is what a person needs to become a member of AA.
  • Every chapter or branch of AA is independent with the exception of matters that impacts other chapters or the entire AA community.
  • Getting the objective of the group to other ignorant alcoholics is the only goal of the group.
  • AA discourages lending finances or approving other outside facilities to benefit from the organization's structure to avoid conflict of interest that could distract the group from pursuing the overall group's common purpose.
  • AA groups should be able to support themselves individually, and decline any help from outside organisations.
  • We should maintain our "non professionalism", but the service centres we offer can employ specialist workers.
  • There is no structural hierarchy in AA but committees can be built to service their members in need.
  • The group name should never be involved in anything outside its jurisdiction because the group is neutral to external issues.
  • We base our relations policy on attraction over promotion, we should always keep our anonymity from the TV, radio, film and press.
  • Being anonymous is the foundation of all spiritual traditions, keeping us close to remembering to value principles over personalities.
