As a traditional means of creating and maintaining a clearly defined working a relation between the groups, the Conference, the A.A. General Service Board and its several service corporations, staffs, committees and executives, and of thus ensuring their effective leadership, it is here suggested that we endow each of these elements of world service with a traditional “Right of Decision.”
God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.
Only you can decide whether you think A.A. is for you. Try to keep an open mind on the subject. If the answer is YES, we will be glad to show you how we stopped drinking ourselves.
A.A. does not promise to solve your life's problems. But we can show you how we are learning to live without drinking "one day at a time." We stay away from that "first drink." If there is no first one, there cannot be a tenth one. And when we got rid of alcohol, we found that life became much more manageable.
Meaning of the Circle-Triangle Symbol
The circle stands for the world of AA and the
triangle stands for AA's Three Legacies of
Recovery, Unity and Service, within our wonderful new world, we have found freedom from our fatal obsession.
That we have chosen this particular
symbol is perhaps no accident. The priest and seers of antiquity regarded the circle enclosing triangle as a means of warding off spirits and evil and AA's circle and triangle of Recovery, Unity and Service has certainly meant the same to us and much more.
