Re: Any advice on getting a sponsor

Any advice for the newcomer getting a sponsor? I have just started going to meetings (about a month now). I had a couple guys approach me and say they could sponsor me. They seemed nice enough. But I don't know if there's something I should look for in a sponsor like how well I relate to them, have...

Re: Where are the online meetings?

Every group I've applied for is either pending approval, not compatible with mobile phones or link no longer available. There's got to be a chat room out there somewhere for an online group??? Sadly, not all the information seems to have been updated. I would allow up to 24hrs for a registration to...

WHAT WE KNOW BEST "Shoemaker, stick to thy last!" . . . better do one thing supremely well than many badly. That is the central theme of this Tradition [Five]. Around it our Society gathers in unity.

Re: Should I find a new sponsor?

Hi, she (my sponsor) keeps saying she needs to speak to friends about the best way to get me started on step work (she doesn’t have a sponsor), because I’m atheist.

Re: Should I find a new sponsor?

Hi, This is my first time posting, so I’m a little nervous about it! For background - I joined the programme about 10 months ago, and found my sponsor on the first day. She has been incredible and I’m so grateful for everything she’s done for me. I had a relapse which lasted for 2 days around 6 mon...
