A fellow asks me to sponsor him right after a meeting. That takes lot of nerve. So I said YES.
He's got 6yrs. sober (dry)
We got lots & lots I.D. together.
" i " and GOD got him thru the 4th step. However, he's in this on again off again relationship for 4yrs. She in Alonon and has 3 children.
They broke-up again and I told him to let her go. No e-mails No phone calls. Low and behold he e-mail her and phoned her too.
She doesn't want anything to do with him. That was on: June 7th, '08
I can't let him go YET.
i'VE been in the same place he's in now for a number of yrs. in sobriety too. And I didn't drink ONLY BE THE LOVELY GRACE OF JESUS CHRIST.
I'm in my 31yr. of sobriety (Thank YOU LORD & A.A.)
My sponsee is suffering like a dog with this no go relationship. I told him everytime he's eating a crapy sandwich; he's the one that ordered it. And when the waiter of life comes to your table you GOT TO PAY THE BILL (IN PAIN YOU PAY)
He know he's doing the wrong thing and I know he's NOT JERKING me around.
I tell him to PRAY and SURRENDER. He wants too, however he goes weak.
I just don't know what else I can tell him.
Do I leave him in pain. I know I CAN'T FIX HIM. However, its meeting we go and I gave him a great little book by: ANDREW MURRAY callled
' COMPLETE SURRENDER ' It turly is a great read. GOD willing I pray it can open-up his eyes.
ANY SUGGESTION GUYS/GALS PLEASE.
GOD BLESS YOU ALL
