When we came into recovery and quit drinking alcohol, we lost what we thought were some old friends. We soon realized that really weren’t friends at all. In our program, we learn that honesty is a must if we are to life a spiritual life within the fellowship. We must learn to be a friend is we want friends. “OF BROTHERHOOD WE KNEW NOTHING” is in the book. Now, through the Steps, we embrace brotherhood and fully understand what a friend is. We are there when they need us and they are there when we need them.
