New sponsorship

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?

New sponsorship

Post by Cherylv » Thu Apr 14, 2016 8:57 am

Moved to new state. Thinking of getting sponsor @ a 12-step BB meeting as that's where I found my previous one. Was on process of 4&5. Any suggestions?

I just made sure the sponsor I chose was one who also worked the 12 Steps.

She had me start over with her reading from the beginning as a way to get to know each other better.
Cling to the thought that, in God's hands, the dark past is the greatest possession you have - the key to life and happiness for others. With it you can avert death and misery for them. page 124 BB
