The Eleventh Tradition of Alcoholics Anonymous is one that I have found to be both freeing and humbling. It allows me to participate in the program completely, without needing validation or recognition for myself or my sobriety.

By remembering that every member is an example of someone who has achieved sobriety through AA, no matter their story—I am able to experience freedom because everyone’s anonymity makes them equal here.
