Finding the Road to Recovery

Everyone finds their own way to recovery. Why, then, do 12 Step programs emphasize getting a sponsor?

Sponsors can be stalwart allies in the pursuit of recovery. Sponsors have traveled their own path to sobriety and can often predict and illuminate stumbling blocks and trap-doors that can derail one's sincere recovery efforts.

Sponsors have their own reasons for choosing to be a sponsor. They have their own sponsors, as well. Sponsors do not do the work for their sponsee seeking recovery; they walk beside their sponsee, alternately performing the roles of consultant, role-model, teacher, coach, cheerleader, and drill sargeant.

Today I will honor a sponsor in recovery by expressing gratitude for the patience and generosity they extend to those who are still suffering.
