I appreciate all your answers, except if you read again, the question is about the twelve traditions, not the twelve steps. I agree the program isn't for everybody, and certainly am not so arrogant as a member of the fellowship to claim it is the only way. It worked for me; or should I say it gave me direction to work on myself.
AA makes no claims of fixing people. Jenny Craig don't work if you don't follow the diet.
The steps of AA should never be tampered with. There is one edition (not sure which) that states even if you are not alcoholic, the steps will improve your life. Afterall, step 1 is the only one that talks about your addiction. All the rest are a way of life.
However, the traditions are my concern. Should we try outside contributions such as donations, fundraisers, etc.? Is the strictness of the anonymity tradition hindering millions of people carrying a message of sobriety and past experience that could be huge in the prevention of alcoholism? Afterall, alcoholism doesn't have the same stigma as 70 years ago.
Read these traditions and see what you think. I don't think there is a right or wrong in your opinions, but keeping an opened mind is how it all works.
