The Tool of Writing

Writing provides a way to become honest with ourselves and our Higher Power.  By writing in journals, gratitude lists, letters and e-mails we can measure our progress, values, motives, and Twelve Step work.

The winter 2000 edition of our newsletter, the SCAnner, was dedicated to the Tools That Help Us Get Better. At the time, the International Service Organization, representing the group conscience of the fellowship as a whole, had not yet adopted Writing as one of the Tools. However, there is a separate pamphlet devoted to that cause, which is available through our literature store.
