Celebrate the 50th Anniversary of “One Day at a Time in Al-Anon” (B6-50)
In 1966, the sixth World Service Conference unanimously approved publishing a book of daily readings.
The Chairperson of the Literature Committee at the time compiled, edited and wrote some of the content of One Day at a Time in Al-Anon to submit for review.
Like almost all of our Conference Approved Literature, the book was a collaborative effort of many members.
The third printing, in 1970, included an index. The Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions were added to the back in 1973, and the Concepts of Service were added in 1992.
In 1978, the Conference passed a motion prohibiting any changes to the book without majority approval of the full Conference.
The one-millionth copy was published in 1980. The five-millionth copy was published in 1998.
A keepsake 50th Anniversary printing of the book with a commemorative cover and gold ribbon was introduced at the Al-Anon International Convention in July. The text remains unchanged. This special printing is available for $15.00 US while supplies last.
