We remember Tradition Five: “Each group has but one primary Purpose – to carry its message to the compulsive overeater who still suffers.” Therefore, anything that we create or suggest should reflect that purpose. No matter what we believe as individuals or as a Security Team, we also remember that Tradition Four says, “Each group should be autonomous except in matters affecting other groups or OA as a whole.”
