BROTHERS IN OUR DEFECTS
We recovered alcoholics are not so much brothers in virtue as we are brothers in our defects, and in our common strivings to overcome them.


AS BILL SEES IT, p. 167

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 A.A., and God, are teaching me how to care about others.
