It's great fun to keep track of sobriety. This "one-day-at-a-time" things is wonderful. Boy, howdy, it makes for a LONG MONTH!
Fine with me. Before, it was like waking up on Christmas Day the day after Christmas. Where DID that year go??
Have you ever gone on a long drive making a game out of noticing every mile-marker on the highway? Talk about a LONG, SLOOOOOOW DRIVE!
It's a wonder realizing there's a DAY goin' on around me!

It took me three try's to find a sponsor. The 1st person I asked had 4 years, but he had not worked the steps, but he gave me his phone number anyway. The second did not like my concept of my Higher Power (I do have that choice). The third one was just right. Keep at it you are making progress.

b. There is no rule about opposite sex sponsorship. I've known a lot of fine ladies that have sponsored men and a lot of fine men that have sponsored ladies.
The un-written rule is: "Don't have sex with your sponsor." If you're going to have sex with them... let them be a friend or a mate or a bed buddy or whatever... just don't think in terms of sponsorship.
Whatever I chose... male or female... my rule would be that I'm not sexually attracted to them.
Heck, I don't remember and I've probably gone on too long and added a bunch of ready-to-burn ideas to the fire!
