This is the second in a pair of podcasts on Sponsorship. Give Ep 11 a listen and then pop in here for the next ideas for finding the right fit with your sponsor.
As I mentioned before, the 12 Steps are a roadmap to recovery, while the sponsor is the navigator. It may take a couple tries to find the right fit with a sponsor. That is OK. The important part is to keep trying.
Temporary sponsorship is also an option. As my husband Jerry mentioned in the podcast, his gift of desperation led him to ask for a sponsor the night he walked into his first AA meeting. He was getting serious about sobriety. That night anyone in AA would have been an acceptable sponsor for a few weeks or months. Just getting started was the key.
