I am new to 12 step recovery and I have a sponsor. I also talk to other members and my sponsors sponsor as well. People keep talking about my grand sponsor. What is a grand sponsor and what do they do?

Grand-Sponsor = "Your Sponsor's Sponsor."

Like Grand-father, or Grand-mother -- would be a parents parent.

So... you are your Grand-Sponsor's -- Grand-baby, because you are sponsored by a person that is Spondored by your Grand-Sponsor. :lol:

It's good to get to know and form supportive and comfortable relations w/ Grand-Sponsors.

Welcome to the site! Glad you're here and thank you for sharing!
