The identification that one alcoholic has with another is
mysterious, spiritual--almost incomprehensible. But it is
there. I "feel" it. Today I feel that I can help people and
that they can help me.
It is a new and exciting feeling
for me to care for someone; to care what they are feeling,
hoping for, praying for; to know their sadness, joy, horror,
sorrow, grief; to want to share those feelings so that someone
can have relief. I never knew how to do this--or how to try.
I never even cared. The Fellowship of AA, and God, are
teaching me how to care about others.
