FRI the 13th

Citroen 2CV and a 1958 Renault

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

for A.A.'s Tradition One.  "Our common welfare should come first; personal recovery depends upon A.A. unity."
I attend a Twelve and Twelve study each week.  Yesterday we read and discussed Tradition One.  I know this much ... if this tradition was not in place and observed, A.A. would never have lasted as long as it has.  If you want to know more about it, read it for yourself.

that I seem to become more passive as I grow older and soberer.  Things that used to bother me don't bother me nearly as much.  Things that I used to jump into the middle of, I can now just sit back and watch.

for advanced sobriety.  I define that as more than a day sober.

Watch your thoughts, for they become words.
Watch your words, for they become actions.
Watch your actions, for they become habits.
Watch your habits, for they become character.
Watch your character, for it becomes your destiny.

The first tradition is a stroke of genius.

I am much more mellow now. I attribute that to recovery.

I've heard--and believe--that one sentence, the First Tradition (short form) is the most important piece of writing in Alcoholics Anonymous.
