Default Freedom

A.A.'s FREEDOMS

We trust that we already know what our several freedoms truly are; that no future generation of AAs will ever feel compelled to limit them. Our AA freedoms create the soil in which genuine love can grow. . . .

LANGUAGE OF THE HEART, p. 303

I craved freedom. First, freedom to drink; later, freedom from drink. The A.A. program of recovery rests on a foundation of free choice. There are no mandates, laws or commandments. A.A.'s spiritual program, as outlined in the Twelve Steps, and by which I am offered even greater freedoms, is only suggested. I can take it or leave it. Sponsorship is offered, not forced, and I come and go as I will. It is these and other freedoms that allow me to recapture the dignity that was crushed by the burden of drink, and which is so dearly needed to support an enduring sobriety.
All I wanted was the first Promise, you will know a new freedom and a new happiness. As it says here, do the 'do' things in AA, and you will have that freedom too. Don't pick up that first drink, go to a meeting, get a sponsor, find a home group and get active in service in our group and working the program with the help of your sponsor. It is a 'we' program and we don't do it alone. Without you, there is no me.
