The highest service you can offer in AA is to accept help. How easy is that? Holding a service position does not mean you are being a servant. The question is:
Are you being of service?
Do you allow others to help you?
When you are jammed up do you let another offer assistance and support? If not, you are denying them a chance to give back what was given to them.

Personally when I'm jammed up I need to get outside of myself do a commitment at jail/detox, or just grab a new guy and ride to some meetings. They say in the literature that is "insurance" against drinking and the it "works when all else fails". That is my experience.
SO in a sense I let somene help me by helping someone else who is helping me.... rather circular logic, but it works just dandy.
