I’ll just leave this here. I haven’t been successful in having a sponsor or in being a sponsor. From all I’ve experienced and all I’ve seen, it means “special aa friend.” Which is fine. Everyone should have one. But gone are the days when a sponsor pays for your hospital stay and puts you up.
“I have a sponsor, and my sponsor has a sponsor.” And? This must end somewhere, no? I hear that as a self-righteous boast. It is not (in my experience) needed for a good long sobriety.
That is all.
