You may be asking, “What is Anonymity?” According to the 12th Tradition of Alcoholics Anonymous (AA), anonymity is a promise of confidentiality for AA members. According to the 12th Tradition, “Anonymity is the spiritual foundation of all our traditions.” Putting anonymity into action means that meeting attendees’ names are kept anonymous. Anything that is said in an alcoholic meeting is also kept anonymous. In Alcoholics AA, anonymity is viewed as the spiritual foundation that allows participants to express their genuine emotions. Many AA groups close their meetings with a statement about the 12th Tradition, the closing statement is, “Who you see here, what you hear here when you leave here, let it stay here.” The 12th Tradition was created by the AA founders who realized that protecting AA members’ anonymity (particularly newcomers) translated into higher new membership rates. Indiana AA, along with every other AA chapter cross the state, embraces the Tradition of anonymity.
