    Group Inventory Questions

    The questions below offer a way to begin—or continue—a service discussion or workshop
    focused on this Tradition.
    1. What is our common welfare as a group? How does unity enhance our primary purpose?
    2. What does the newcomer see and hear when attending our meeting? Is this an inviting
    group to join, or are we exclusive or intimidating in some way?
    3. Do we make an effort to make everyone feel welcome? How do we welcome
    newcomers? Who are we missing and how can we include them?
    4. How does sharing affect our group unity? Do we carry a clear message? How well do we
    listen to each other?
    5. Does our group have a conscience, values, a personality? How can we embrace our
    differences and still practice unity? What do we do when we disagree?
    6. Are we aware of any challenges to our group’s unity? How can we better foster unity?
    7. What’s going on around us that affects our meeting? How can our group maintain an
    atmosphere of recovery when it’s challenged? How do we address common challenges
    such as:
    *Newcomers from a facility arriving by the busload?
    *Helping addicts with young children hear a message when attending our
    *Members who are disruptive or deliberately disunifying?
    *Members who are threatening, intimidating, or predatory?
    *Members who feel threatened or afraid?
    *Breakups or conflict among our members?
    *Members who discriminate, or who exploit our differences for their own ends?
    8. In what ways does this group contribute to NA unity locally and beyond? Is there
    anything we’re doing that may be disunifying?
    9. Are we in communication with our local service bodies? How can we help to improve the
    flow of information? Do our members participate in service, and communicate to the
    group about what’s going on?
    10. 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?
    11. Discuss any bridges between this Tradition and other Traditions. What do these bridges
    teach us about our group?
    12. What more can we do to bring the principles of this Tradition into our group efforts?
    What could we do differently to better fulfill our primary purpose?
