District 10 - Area 1 (AL / NW FL)
(p. 44-45 BB)
If a mere code of morals or a better philosophy of life were sufficient to overcome alcoholism, many of us would have recovered long ago. But we found that such codes and philosophies did not save us, no matter how much we tried. We could wish to be moral, we could wish to be philosophically comforted, in fact, we could will these things with all our might, but the power needed for change wasn't there. Our human resources, as marshaled by the will, were not sufficient; they failed utterly.
Lack of power: That was our dilemma. We had to find a power by which we could live - and it had to be a Power greater than ourselves.

What is District?
District 10 is simply a part of the service structure for A.A. groups in the several counties that make up the Dothan, AL area. This structure allows for individual groups to bring their conscience (or direction) to the city-wide, state-wide and national level. The information flow in this structure is bi-directional.
Group questions or opinions are carried to the District level by Group Service Representatives (GSR) from each group. The questions or opinions of the District are carried to the Area Assembly at the state level by the District Committee Members (DCM).
The Area questions and opinions are carried to the General Service Conference (includes GSO) by the Area Delegate. Information, proposals, and findings are then disseminated back to the Group members in reverse order. This structure neither makes rules nor enforces controls on any A.A. group. Each A.A. group remains autonomous, except in matters that could affect other groups or A.A. as an entity.
Recovery, Unity & Service....!
Meetings List: The meeting list is made accessible for all secretaries of his or her respected group for print out and also to assist the general public in finding a meeting.
Meetings There are many great home groups throughout the Wiregrass! Finding AA meetings in Dothan or surrounding areas in the Wiregrass is just a click away.

Tradition Twelve became important early in my sobriety and, along with the Twelve Steps, it continues to be a must in my recovery. I became aware after I joined the Fellowship that I had personality problems, so that when I first heard it, the Tradition's message was very clear: there exists an immediate way for me to face, with others, my alcoholism and attendant anger, defensiveness, offensiveness. I saw Tradition Twelve as being a great ego-deflator; it relieved my anger and gave me a chance to utilize the principles of the program. All of the Steps, and this particular Tradition, have guided me over decades of continuous sobriety. I am grateful to those who were here when I needed them.
