The Power of Helping Others in Recovery: A Closer Look at 'Working With Others, Part 1: The Soul of AA' on Away
Perhaps there's someone in your life who needs help too- that's been true of me- by staying in aa or just staying sober.
In Episode 13 of Away's first series, Working With Others, Part 1: The Soul of AA, host Steph Roberts delves into the importance of helping others in recovery. While some may view the advice in Chapter Seven as antiquated, Roberts argues that there is still relevance in the idea of carrying the message to other alcoholics. She reminds listeners that practical experience is key in AA, and that service can take on many different forms.
Roberts also touches on the role of sponsorship, cautioning against putting sponsors on pedestals. Instead, she encourages listeners to engage in general conversation and share their own experiences. Roberts acknowledges that not all individuals in recovery will have the same spiritual conceptions, but emphasizes the importance of introducing the fellowship of AA to those who may need it. Ultimately, Roberts reminds us that helping others can be a powerful tool in our own recovery journeys.
