I am a straight woman, so I will not take a straight man as a sponsee. That’s too dangerous for my own recovery.
I cannot be your only source of information. I want you to have other sources in addition to me - meetings, therapist, spiritual guidance, or whatever. This way - you can take my suggestions, run them by somebody else, and see if they make sense. If I’m wrong about something, somebody else might help you to see that.
I want to use the Twelve Steps - at least, Steps One and Two. That’s a big enough dose for a beginner. In recovery, a sponsor shares what has worked for them. The Steps work for me. If I’m in a bad place, I can always turn to Steps One and Two and reconnect with my higher power that way.
If you would like to talk with me about this, please PM me.
