AA Big Book Sponsors

In A.A., a Big Book Sponsor has but One primary purpose – to carry the message they found in the Big Book of hope and recovery from a seemingly hopeless state of mind and body to all those who suffer. To show others who suffer precisely how to recover is the only purpose of this site. We have NO dues, fees and decline any outside contributions. We have been given a way out and only wish to share, pass on and give freely this precious gift.

So many people today are not getting the wonderful message of recovery found in this book. We only want to pass on the message and experience of recovery we have found, by the grace of God, good sponsorship and a persistent and consistent dedication to our primary purpose to carry this message to those who suffer. After nearly two decades of continuous recovery and seeing so many deaths of not just the slipper but people with long term absence of alcohol die I decided it was time to make a website with specific directions of how to effectively carry the message of recovery as a sponsor.

What is it that they are trying to get you to share? Have you asked him that?

Just remember -- it's not worth drinking over. And, if you slit your wrist you'll bloody up the floor and have a mess to clean up! :lol:

Are you reading the Big Book? Did you start on the front cover -- and not miss a page (including looking at any blank ones!). :wink:

Are you attending the meetings that your sponsor asked you to attend?
