Sponsee has history of relapses and still drinking

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?

Hello Nancy, Bill Wilson estimated that he 12 stepped about 600 hundred people before he met Dr. Bob and not one of that stayed sober. He was ready to give up when Lois told him but Bill you are still sober.
The first step tells me I am powerless over alcohol. That is true whether it is my drinking or someone else’s. That has to come from the power that is greater me. All I can do is show a sponsee the path I took by introducing them to the principles of AA by taking them steps. Sounds easy enough but just remember you are dealing with alcoholics and that is anything but easy. :wink:
Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in pretty, well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out and loudly proclaiming WOW What a ride!!!!
