Recovery, Unity, Service—these are the Three Legacies given to the whole membership of AA by its founders and their fellow old-timers.
Carrying the message of recovery to the still-suffering alcoholic is the basic service the AA fellowship gives; it is our principal aim and the main reason for our existence.
Therefore, AA is more than a set of principles; it is a society of alcoholics in action. We must carry the message, else we ourselves can wither and those who haven’t been given the truth may die.
Thus, an AA service is anything that helps us reach a fellow sufferer—whether it be 12-Step work, with one alcoholic working with another, to a simple phone call or cup of coffee, all the way to AA’s General Service Office for national and international action. The sum total of all these services is our Third Legacy of Service.
