My part of the Seventh Tradition means so much more than just
giving money to pay for the coffee. It means being accepted
for myself by belonging to a group. For the first time I can
be responsible, because I have a choice. I can learn the principles
of working out problems in my daily life by getting involved
in the "business" of A.A. By being self-supporting, I can
give back to A.A. what A.A. gave to me! Giving back to A.A.
not only ensures my own sobriety, but allows me to buy insurance
that A.A. will be here for my grandchildren.
