That’s funny DT…my sponsor tells me, “I don’t have to “figure out” anything! 🙂 I just have to do it…take the action.December 2, 2016 at 2:23 am #4807373
It’s great that you feel so positive because that’s important.
My experience has not been so. I was told to copy the first chapter by hand and read an “Inspirational” self-help book by Melody Beattie.December 3, 2016 at 3:25 am #4807377
Thanks for the replies guys,
just got off the phone with my sponsor. He gave me a new assignment of having to call two additional people in the program a day and also him. To be honest, I do not really want to do that but he has been doing it longer then I have. Problem is I have no idea of what really to say to them when I do call. Just a “how are you doing”? I hardly know these guys, I don’t know really know what to say to them. Thinking about it does make me a bit uncomfortable, but I need to learn how to deal with uncomfortable feelings. If I can’t do this, then how am I going to get sober you know?
He states that I only tell him what I am doing, not what I am feeling. I get what he is saying, but I do spend all frickin day talking about my feelings at programing.
I think he may be too intense for me, but I’m going to continue giving it a try with him for at least a while. The last thing I want is to feel pushed away or afraid of the guy. If I need to change sponsors then I will but I know that this guy has worked a successful program and has sponsored lots of guys. I’ve seen plenty of people he has worked with.
I did chair my first meeting tonight, which I was pretty glad for. Going to do some service work tomorrow.
