Practice These Principles
Living the Spiritual Disciplines and Virtues in 12-Step Recovery

Audios & Videos

Our initial focus here is on talks by AA pioneers and other AAs whose personal stories appear in the various editions of the Big Book. Where applicable, these videos will be indexed to those stories in “Big Book Q&A,” on this site. You may also wish to consult this site's "AA History Timeline." Links may also be provided to other sites where further biographical information may be found.

Please note that presentation of material does not imply endorsement of content. Please also note that some of the sites from which audios and videos are uploaded may sponsor ads. Unfortunately, there’s nothing we can do about it other than to click on “Skip Ad." Some of the audios are very old and their quality may vary. There may also be occasional, momentary pauses in the audio, but within a few seconds the sound should resume.
