    Why are we anonymous?

    • A.

      If somebody relapsed they didn't want people to think it was because AA didn't work.

    • B.

    • C.

      Being an alcoholic was a disgraceful thing when AA started.

    • D.

      All of the above.

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "All of the above." This is because all three statements provided in the question offer valid reasons for why individuals in AA choose to remain anonymous. The first statement suggests that anonymity protects individuals from being judged if they relapse, as it prevents others from assuming that AA has failed for them. The second statement implies that anonymity helps to prevent ego-driven behavior, as no one can claim a superior status within the organization. The third statement highlights the historical context of AA's origins, where being an alcoholic was considered shameful. Therefore, all three reasons contribute to the practice of anonymity in AA.
