Helping others -Reflections on the Road to Recovery from alcoholism

                     Reflections ............................on the Road to Recovery

                                             Helping others (12)
One day I informed my home group that I was worried about things in my life, that I felt depressed, and my spirituality was not very good. I asked them to help fix this (me).

They replied almost immediately and unanimously. "Help someone else - anybody."

Why do you think they said this?

Do you find that this "tool" works for you?

What do you think about the "anybody" (meaning the person doesn't necessarily have to be an alcoholic) part of the statement?
