I DON'T THINK I've ever really forgotten anyone I twelfth-stepped in AA. Sometimes, I pause and wonder what ever happened to so-and-so. It's a lot easier to stay in touch with sober members and those who go on trying than it is to keep track of those who come around for a time and vanish. The human mind must repress some things, or we would all go mad. So it's sometimes good that we forget. Still--I think all the people I've tried to help are still in the back of my mind.
