The Twelve Traditions

The 12 traditions are slightly different to the 12 steps, they will speak with the Alcoholics Anonymous as a whole, instead of speaking to the individual. These governing traditions are stipulated and defined in the Big Book as the official literature of Alcoholics Anonymous.

The 12 traditions are often applied to other retrieval plans by most 12-step groups.
