Service is the third legacy of AA; the first and second are Unity and Recovery. Active involvement in AA is a means of maintaining sobriety. Service means getting involved in those functions that carry the A.A. message or allow others to carry it.
“Practical experience shows that nothing will so much insure immunity from drink as intensive work with other alcoholics. It works when other activities fail. This is our twelfth suggestion: Carry this message to other alcoholics! You can help when no one else can. You can secure their confidence when others fail. Remember they are very ill.
Life will take on new meaning. To watch people recover, to see them help others, to watch loneliness vanish, to see a fellowship grow up about you, to have a host of friends — this is an experience you must not miss.”
