I did it!

I finally made a call and got myself a temporary Sponser. My heart is beating so fast! Crazy the fears I have. Now I have to begin writing out the 4th step. I pretty much know what to do, but any advice would be great. Thanks

13 days sober and so grateful!

Oh my goodness. The person that I really wanted for my permanent Sponser just called me and said she would be happy to Sponser me! So now I have a permanent Sponser! What a great day. I called the other lady back and told her. She was happy about it. She has a ton on her plate, so I am glad this worked out for both of us. My new Sponser wants me to start at step one with her...so disregard the 4th step stuff in the OP. Lol
Thank you God, AA, and SR!!

She told me to write out a brief history of my drinking. She then asked me to write 3 examples of when I was powerless over alcohol and how it made my life unmanageable. Then we are going to meet this weekend and go over it.

Happy to hear you're working the program No need to rush it - step one is a big one. Sounds like you were led to the right sponsor. Remember: "It works IF you work it!" God bless and take it a day at a time!
