Reasons Why You Should Break Anonymity in Sobriety

Alcoholic's Anonymous was created many years ago. When it was created the main point of it was for you to stay anonymous during your recovery. Beth Leipholtz, a contributor writer for the Huffington Post, believes people should start breaking their anonymity when becoming sober. Leipholtz has been in AA and has 6 reason why she broke her anonymity, and why others should do it as well. 

  1. Times change
  2. By telling my story I am only breaking MY OWN anonymity, no one else's 
  3. I feel that Step 12 is more important than Tradition 11 
  4. Being vocal about my journey keeps me sober and accountable
  5. I am proud of my recovery 
  6. Recovery is about becoming comfortable with who I am
