Alcoholics Anonymous 12 Traditions
How & Why it works! “One alcoholic talking to another alcoholic!”
Please research the Washingtonian’s 1840-1848 failure due too NO singleness of purpose.
The Washingtonian movement (Washingtonians or Washingtonian Total Abstinence Society) was a 19th century fellowship founded on April 2, 1840 by six hard drinkers at Chase’s Tavern on Liberty Street in Baltimore, Maryland.
The idea was that by relying on each other, sharing their alcoholic experiences and relying upon divine help, they could keep each other sober. Total abstinence from alcohol was their goal. The group taught sobriety and preceded Alcoholics Anonymous by 100 years.
“We admitted we were powerless over alcohol – that our lives had become unmanageable.”
God grant me the Serenity to accept the things I cannot change; Courage to change the things I can; and Wisdom to know the difference. Thy will, not mine, be done.
🙏🏻A NECESSARY PRUNING🙏🏻
We know that the pains of drinking had to come before sobriety, and emotional turmoil before serenity.

I love spending time in my garden feeding and pruning my beautiful flowers. One day, as I was busily snipping away, a neighbor stopped by. She commented, “Oh! Your plants are so beautiful, it seems such a shame to cut them back.” I replied, “I know how you feel, but the excess must be removed so they can grow stronger and healthier.” Later I thought that perhaps my plants feel pain, but God and I know it’s part of the plan and I’ve seen the results. I was quickly reminded of my precious A.A. program and how we all grow through pain. I ask God to prune me when it’s time, so I can grow.
