Question about getting a sponsor

Hey all,

Just wanted your thoughts about sponsors. My bishop told me that I need to get a sponsor that I can turn to in time of need. I don't know who that would be. I don't think it will work if my wife is the sponsor. I have talked with my dad about it, but I don't know if I feel comfortable calling him at 11:00 at night and telling him that I am having a terrible craving for porn. So who do I ask to be a sponsor?



"I would choose someone of the same gender who has successfully worked all 12 Steps, in order, who has a sponsor-themselves, who has a considerable amount of clean time under their belt, and who exemplifies the 12 Step Program in action.

No a wife, or father won't work."

"In a decaying environment, the mind is the last redoubt of righteousness, and it must be preserved even amid bombardment by evil stimuli. Christ is competent to see us through, “for in that he himself hath suffered being tempted, he is able to succour them that are tempted” As promised, He will make either “a way to escape” or a way “to bear it”."
