A.A. Big Book Step Study Preamble

Sobriety, the freedom from alcohol through the teaching and practice of the Twelve Steps, is the sole purpose of an A.A. Group. It was voted by Group Conscience that the purpose of this meeting is to help Alcoholics achieve sobriety by studying, discussing, and practicing the Steps as they are laid out in the Big Book. It has become apparent to us that when we stopped blaming people, places, and things for our problems and decided to take a fearless and honest look at ourselves as the root cause of our alcoholism and applied the Twelve Principles in our lives, we got better.
