Its official~ I have a sponsor. I asked my friend J (who took me to my first meeting) if she would be my sponsor. She checked with her sponsor and got the “go ahead”. She told me she always runs things by her first. I’m EXCITED! I’m hearing others in AA talk so highly about working the steps and how it has changed their life. I have already read the first step and I also picked up the book, A Woman’s Way through the Twelve Steps by Stephanie Covington. I have only read the intro, step 1 and the spirituality chapters and already having many light bulb moments.
I think J will be a good fit for me. We are both moms and have kids around the same age. We live in the same town but we are not in the same social circle. She has been sober for 9 years and has an amazing recovery story. She has her own sponsor and attends meetings regularly and very passionate about AA. I feel comfortable talking to her and feel she can relate to what I have been or going through.
If you told me 6 weeks ago I would be a card carrying member of AA and loving it~ I would of laughed.
Thanks for reading & your support! I am off to check out another new meeting tonight.
