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.
