This one is one for our 12 step folks. It’s a long overdue topic that plays a pivotal role in any successful 12 step recovery program. Sponsorship. 


What is a sponsor? Why is it important? How do you get one? Can we apply a mentorship attitude towards other aspects of our life outside of sobriety? Join us as we dive deep into that one-of-a-kind, love/hate relationship that we 12 steppers call Sponsorship. 


This week’s topic is inspired by our Warstory from Marty. It's fair to say Marty had to go through a lot of shit before he was willing to think a sponsor may be able to help him. Somewhere between having his stomach pumped at the ripe old age of NINE to having his front door broken down by the police, he started thinking that maybe drugs and alcohol were an issue. He was able to find someone that broke it down pretty simply for him. Following in his steps has gotten him to a place where he is happy, joyous and free, living a beautiful life of recovery and helping others along the way.
