About "anonymity"
-->"That 'anonymous' part was the most important thing to me at the time. To me, using our first names is only the first step in being anonymous. There is much more to anonymity. It means absolutely no gossip. It means not repeating what we heard about anyone at the diner or in the parking lot after a meeting—not even to our sponsor," from the Grapevine article "Hope Nobody Sees Me! A member in Tennessee shares his thoughts about the importance of anonymity."
-->"Anonymity is the spiritual foundation of all our Traditions, ever reminding us to place principles before personalities" (from A.A.'s Traditions).

-------------------Inspirational Messages-------------------

-->“I go to lots of meetings. I get there early and help set up. I stay late and help clean up. I extend my hand as it was extended to me ... I’ve been given a second chance and I’m here to be of service.” --from “Staying in the Momentum,” Blacksburg, Virginia, August 1995, In Our Own Words: Stories of Young A.A.'s in Recovery
