    I’m glad you went and that you found it helpful 🙂

    It’s ok if you left early and didn’t find a sponsor this time. After 2 weeks of meetings I’m still working up the guts to find a sponsor. But I’ve found that the most helpful thing about going to meetings is just being around real people with a similar goal. It’s really grounding and it gets me out of my own head.

    I’m glad you went to a meeting and keep going back. If it kept you sober today, it worked. Some people go to a meeting everyday in the begining.

    I wouldn’t worry about the sponsor thing at this point. I didn’t get a sponsor until I had 7 – 8 months in. I wouldn’t recommend you wait that long, but my point is you don’t need to get one the first day.

    One thing I would recommend right away is getting a copy of the Big Book and reading the first 164 pages.
