AUGUST 29th

I CHOOSE ANONYMITY


We are sure that humility, expressed by anonymity, is the
greatest safeguard that Alcoholics Anonymous can ever
have.

TWELVE STEPS AND TWELVE TRADITIONS, p. 187

Since there are no rules in A.A. I place myself where I want to be, and so I choose anonymity.

I want my God to use me, humbly, as one of His tools in this program.

Sacrifice is the art of giving of myself freely, allowing humility to replace my ego. With sobriety, I suppress that urge to cry out to the world, "I am a member of A.A." and I experience inner joy and peace. I let people see the changes in me and hope they will ask what happened to me.

I place the principles of spirituality ahead of judging, fault-finding and criticism.

I want love and caring in my group, so I can grow.
