Question about sponsors
By Girlie

Someone said she'd send me a list of phone numbers I can call of women sex addicts. I'm hoping maybe one of them could be my sponsor. I really feel I need a sponsor.

2 questions

a)What do people do with these phone lists? (In SA meetings, people talk about contacts, do I contact these people?)

b)If I am supposed to call people, what in the heck am I supposed to talk about?

c)What do you do with a sponsor? I realize it helps with accountability, but that's all I know.

d)How do you choose a sponsor?

Comments:

A sponsor has one purpose...    
"to walk you through the 12 Steps.
A good sponsor should have already worked the 12 Steps successfully, herself. I, personally, prefer someone with many years "clean". If a person has substantial clean time, it follows that what they are doing is working."

Sponsors    
"ARP has an excellent paper called Support in Recovery which outlines what a sponsor should do, what a sponsee should expect and how to choose a sponsor. It's pretty awesome. Do you have a copy of it? I might be able to get one for you if not. Let me know.

"In recent years, as I have sung the hymns of the Atonement, it has been with an especially full heart—and also with full voice, when I can continue to sing—lines such as “How great thou art,” “I scarce can take it in,” “To rescue a soul so rebellious and proud as mine,” “I stand all amazed,” and “Oh, it is wonderful!”"
