Some questions that can be helpful in evaluating whether our actions may or may not be in conflict with the principles of humility and sacrifice that underlie our anonymity traditions:

  • Is my posting about the message or the messenger?
  • Am I carrying the A.A. message in the hopes of helping someone else, or am I simply “shouting from the rooftops“?
  • Am I taking my story and affiliating it with political causes?
  • Am I being extra cautious about not identifying other A.A. members in photographs or statements?
  • Am I avoiding the temptation to incite controversy through caustic argument or bullying others who may disagree with me?
  • Am I providing helpful information about A.A. for those who may need our help?
