We have had a few new comers to our group lately.  I want to help these people, it’s part of the program and I enjoy seeing people succeed in making it in recovery.  The problem I have is that I have not yet completed my step work so I don’t know how I feel about trying to be someone’s sponsor.  I have not been asked yet, except for one time.  That was a long time ago.  This young guy was at the Saturday morning men’s meeting and I greeted him and he sat near me.  I spoke to him a little bit and after the meeting he asked if I would be his sponsor.  I told him that I couldn’t because I haven’t completed my step work yet.  I gave him my phone number though and told him to call any time he needed to and that we would work on finding him a sponsor.  I have never seen that guy again.  I hope he is doing OK.  Keith later told me that I could have offered to be his temporary sponsor because I have more than enough time in the program.
