These essays are ultimately designed for long term members of 12 step fellowships to help them be better sponsors and to help them be of service to others without allowing it to become their whole identity. In recovery, we get a chance to help others, but, in attempting to do so, we end up making mistakes, and coming face to face with our own characters defects. Service to other is a chance for us to exercise our own personal demons.
Our satire begins with one sock in particular, Romeo. He's staying clean but living dirty. We open as he cries to himself in the mirror. He's caught between being honest and saving face.
