Need to find a sponsor

I have decided to work on my control issues and thought it might be helpful to find a sponsor, someone who has the same problems.

I get stressed out when there is a situation that seems chaotic to me or one in which I am unsure about living in or dont' know how to live in. Even more stressful is when I try to change it to make it more livable for myself, but find it is impossible to change.

The serenity prayer is very helpful, but I think having a person I can call when those times come along would be good too.

A sponsor in these threads here would be great, but it would be even more helpful to find one that I can call on the phone. Does anyone have suggestions on how to find someone like this? groups?

Hi Artist,
I got a sponsor through my Al-Anon group but never call her 🙂

I think its hard to find the right sponsor. I think friends who work the 12 steps is an excellent choice in real life. My sis and I both are in the program and we talk program alot to each other, but I have never thought to ask her to be my sponsor?

Pick someone you trust and can open up with. That can call your BS and that will help you to find your answers with the program. Hugs
