I was asked today to sponsor a guy, who's last drink was last night. I have to be honest, I have not sponsored before. although I have many years of sobriety, many of those years spend "dry" not working the program. I have returned to AA in the last year and a half, have a sponsor and have worked the steps humbly and honestly.
So the miracles continue, i now a have a sponsee. I have checked in with my sponsor about this, as well as a trusted member.
I thought I'd put it out on the forum as well, for any input, wisdom on those early first meetings with a, most likely, still toxic alcoholic.
I know it is not a good place for me to do these things on my own, nor do I have to. I am a member of AA, the fellowship, and I always need to remember to ask for help. so that is what I am doing.
Thanks in advance.
