Looking for Sponsor in Manchester, Uk ( Or Online)

Most of us who recovered with AA's program did so with the help of a "sponsor". But what is sponsorship? How do I get one? Who can be a sponsor? What makes a good sponsor?

Looking for Sponsor in Manchester, Uk ( Or Online)

Post by _peter_ » Thu Oct 29, 2015 2:59 pm

Hi all,

As the title suggests, I'm trying to find a sponsore to make a start on the 12 step program. I'm 37 and have been attending AA meetings very occassionally for about 9 years now. However I've never managed to stop drinking , and never really attended one meeting in same place long enough to meet anyone to ask them to sponsor, so thought I would try here.

Can anyone help? Many thanks

Hi Peter,

Welcome to the forum; I'm Tosh, a Geordie alcoholic living in South East Wales.

I will; PM me your mobile number and a time when's good for me to phone you.

Scary huh? :lol:

If I don't hear from you, my suggestion would be to go to a bunch of different meetings - there's got to be loads of them in Manchester - and find a good solid Big Book based sponsor.

Regards

Tosh
