It is not only about having a sponsor. Many people come to the program, grab a sponsor and then sit and do nothing other then say “I have a sponsor” when they are asked at meetings.
A sponsor takes you through the Big Book and the steps. They are also there to ask questions to, call when you have a problem and not only about drinking. I talk to my sponsor about all types of subjects.
The point is to find a person that is the main source of information, suggestions and guidance. There is a LOT of information and you need someone to explain and filter it. My head was spinning way to much at the start and I needed someone to sort out what I had heard and what others have done so I could get a program working that was right for me.
