The treatment program introduced her to Alcoholics Anonymous then told her to “get a sponsor and work the steps”.  I’m sure it sounded like a good idea, sorta like “hey, grab the life preserver or you’ll drown” sounds like a good idea to a lousy swimmer in deep water.  So who is this “sponsor person” supposed to be; a buddy, a triage nurse, the alcohol police or some kind of booze sensei?  To our guest the confusion was secondary to finding a way to follow through.  The seriousness of the alcoholism overrode the mind games and she got her first sponsor.  Everything else unfolded from there.  Join us this Sunday night to experience a fascinating journey through the ups and downs of sobriety with the help of an AA sponsor.
