Online 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?

These things happen and we do get people relapsing, it helps others see that the maintenance of our spiritual program of action, is important to the sort of contented life which ensures alcohol does not become an option once again. So while it’s hard on the person it happens to, it also helps us all to learn from their experience.

We provide an online sponsor facility here - http://www.e-aa.org/form_sponsors.php. Maybe this can give you more direct one on one assistance, but also other members here I expect will offer their experience strength and hope. All I can offer is keep your head up, and don’t feel ashamed, things will work out. Also we have had quite a few here with court cases coming up, where they expected the worse losing license and so on, but happily they came back to report that the punishment wasn't as bad as they expected.

I sent you a Private message with some good resources. take a look at your in box.
Show him the mental twist which leads to the first drink of a spree. We suggest you do this as we have done it in the chapter on alcoholism.(Alcoholics Anonymous, Page 92)
