I Am Only a Teenager - Do I Really Need a Sponsor?
Are they spiritual?To find out if you initially connect with a potential sponsor, listen to what they share at meetings. If you can relate to what they are saying and get a feeling that you equate to their spiritual side, you should seek them out and ask for their phone number. Call them as soon as you can to get to know them on a more personal level to see if they have what you want.
Are they walking the walk?Anybody can memorize the recovery literature and use it in their verbiage. They need to implement the information of the program into their own deportment to truly be an example in their recovery. You would not want someone to make suggestions to you if they were not doing it themselves. Sponsorship is a beautiful gift of sobriety for people of all ages including teenagers. Find a sponsor that you think will make a difference in your sobriety and get busy working the steps. You will appreciate the time they spend with you because your sobriety depends on it.
