"My sponsor told me he never wanted me to just keep coming back. That if I walked through those doors it was my job to find some kind of meaning in a word someone said or a story someone lived. If all else failed I was to help the one beside me. He was adamant that I never just keep coming back. I had been doing that my whole life. My sponsor taught me that the meaning found inside the group was only valuable if it brought growth outside the group. He taught me to use the group as a training ground for kindness." - D.P.
