The questions below offer a way to begin—or continue—a service discussion or workshop
focused on this Tradition.
- What is the difference between attraction and promotion? How does this difference
influence the services we carry out?
- How does the behavior of our members around our meetings or in our service efforts
reflect on NA as a whole? Are we serving as examples of recovery in our community, or
do our relations with our neighbors reflect poorly on NA?
- What is the role of public relations service in the growth of NA in our community?
- What tools do we have to assess the PR needs in our community? Are there professionals
in our community who may not know about NA? What do we do to make sure that
professionals are able to find NA in order to send addicts to us?
- Are our PR efforts planned and considered, or do they happen intermittently when
someone gets interested? How consistently do we follow through?
- What holds us back from doing PR? Are our reservations based in planning or fear? How
can we support each other in our PR efforts? How can we help our groups to carry the
message when our PR efforts are successful?
- How does our policy of attraction rather than promotion affect the service we do beyond
PR? How else might this guide our efforts? Is there anything our service body is doing
now that might be improved or changed by considering this policy?
- Why shouldn’t any single member be a spokesperson for NA? What can we do to avoid
situations where a member might be seen as a spokesperson for us?
- What are some challenges or opportunities social media presents to our public relations
efforts? How do we ensure that the guidance of this Tradition is applied to our use of
communication tools? How do we protect personal anonymity and NA’s reputation on
or in social media? What can we do to restore NA’s reputation once it’s been
- How does this Tradition help us understand anonymity? How does anonymity help us
understand this Tradition? How do we practice anonymity in terms of this Tradition?
- Discuss any bridges between this Tradition and one or more of the Twelve Concepts.
What do these bridges teach us about our service efforts?
- What more can we do to bring the principles of this Tradition into our service efforts?
What could we do differently to better carry out our services?
