todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful
over the last 6 years (I've been sober almost 7) I've had probably 15-18 sponsees. I've never "fired" any of them. I almost did early on, but after talking to my sponsor about it, he convinced me not to do anything. He said the problem would take care of itself. And right he was. So nearly all of my sponsees have "fired" themselves. Most are no longer sober, as far as I know.
that I'm still sober even though I don't use my sponsor nearly as much as I did in the first 2 years. We still get together occasionally though.
that Hayden and I celebrate 8 years together today. We spent 3 years apart physically when I got sober and built my sober foundation. He went to school back home and finished his degree.
that just about everything happens for a reason that I rarely know at the time
The most damaging phrase in the language is: 'It's always been done that way.'
