Default Helping

Helping others is a significant part of the program, and there are many ways the program gets passed on. When you live the program and share it with others, you are carrying the message, especially when you sponsor new members. In practicing the Twelfth Step you will find that -

By witnessing to others, your appreciation of the program and the program's impact on your life deepens.
By hearing the stories of new members, you are reminded of where you were when you started.
By modeling to others, you become aware that you need to practice what you preach.
By giving to others, you develop bonds with new people who really need you
By helping others, you give what you have received.
By supporting new beginnings, you revitalize your own efforts.

- A Gentle Path Through the Twelve Steps, by Patrick Carnes, p. 197
