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."

"If it were possible to make your road very easy, you wouldn’t grow in strength. If you were always forgiven for every mistake without effort on your part, you would never receive the blessings of repentance. If everything were done for you, you wouldn’t learn how to work, or gain self-confidence, or acquire the power to change. "
