My purpose for sponsorship is to teach others how to teach others how to work the 12 Step program as outlined in the Big Book of A. Therefore, once the new person has learned and worked all 12 Steps and is living in the disciplines of Steps 10 and 11 on a daily basis, I help my sponsee find a qualified addict who wants to stop and get them working together on their 12 Step journey. Thus, I conclude my formal sponsorship with my sponsee, knowing that they have a dependence, not on me, but upon their Higher Power.

Moreover, I rest easy, knowing that the fellowship has one more teacher amongst its members, freeing me to commence looking for another willing, honest and open-minded addict to instruct and repeat the process. I have carried the message of the Big Book to many alcoholics and addicts and rarely have I seen a person fail who thoroughly follows our path. My struggles with them are strenuous, comic and tragic.

Those who could not or would not see our way of life are often consumed by their temptations which leads them to the gates of insanity or death.

The Awakening of China

Helping other addicts is the foundation stone of my recovery. I have shared time, energy and money. My business and personal life has been interrupted by the telephone ringing at any time of the day or night. My spouse sometimes feels neglected. I have made innumerable trips to police courts, detox centers, hospitals, jails and asylums. I have counseled frantic spouses and relatives. Occasionally I have to meet such conditions. I have had many failures.

Astounded, I asked how is that possible? That to me is one of the best kept secrets in our fellowship today. When I started showing the newcomer how to stay sober, I have found no trouble staying sober. I have been thrown out of groups and asked not to come back. I have been asked not to bring my Big Book into some A. I have been physically and verbally threatened by members of the fellowship for teaching that our 12 Step Program can be learned in an afternoon. I have been blamed for killing people with the Big Book. When confronted with such animosity, my program tells me I have to look at my part.

Have I been crusading, righteous, or critical? Have I been engaging in frothy debates or windy arguments? Have I been demonstrating an attitude of intolerance? Yes, there have been times when I have been all these things, but I claim spiritual progress not perfection and I am no saint. I confess that I am a Big Book fundamentalist. I work my Big Book like a recipe for recovery.

When I follow the 12 Step instructions as outlined in the book, it awakens my mind and I make conscious contact with my Higher Power. I must remember that when I focus my mind on what is wrong with the fellowship and the meetings today, the more I become restless, irritable and discontented. I must remember that the meetings are filled with many suffering and untreated addicts.

Therefore, I practice acceptance and focus on what is good about the meetings and the fellowship. I try to see what I can positively add to the meeting—my only desire is to be helpful.


I must remember that I have no monopoly on recovery, but I do know that the Big Book solution works. Having had a spiritual experience, I try to practice the 12 Step principles in all my affairs. First, I take care of family, for sobriety is not enough and I am a long way from making good to my spouse, parents and children whom for years I have so shockingly treated. Second, I take care of my business, for there can be no family if I am not self-supporting. And third, in my spare time, I carry this message to other alcoholic addicts. For me, this approach, in this order, is a balanced program.

Over the years I have witnessed a fellowship grow up about me. I have watched the spirit grow in the eyes of a suffering individual and seen them recover from a seemingly hopeless state of mind and body. I have seen them make a degree turn in life, only to help some other suffering addict do the same.

This is the experience I would not miss. I know you will not want to miss it either. Frequent contact with newcomers and other Big Book sponsors is a bright spot in my day. My life has taken on a new meaning and I seem to be of benefit to others. I have found a new freedom and happiness. I know serenity and peace.

I continue to lose interest in selfish things and gain interest in the people in my life. My attitude and outlook on life has changed. Fear and economic insecurity is down and I know how to intuitively handle situations which use to baffle me. I realize that my Higher Power does for me what I could not do for myself alone. Thus I grow spiritually and so can you with a Big Book in your hand. It contains all you will need to begin working with the addict who still suffers. What could I possibly offer another newcomer? Maybe I should wait a year or two.

By working the Big Book solution, you will tap a source of power greater than yourself. To duplicate, with such backing, what I have accomplished is only a matter of willingness, patience and labour. Remember your reliance is always upon your Higher Power.

It will show you how to create the fellowship you crave. Ask in morning mediation what you can do for the addict who still suffers. The answers will come if you work your program. Remember you have recovered and have been given the power to help others. Give freely of what you have been shown and join us on the Broad Highway of the Fellowship of the Spirit. You will surely meet some of us as you trudge the Road of Happy Destiny.

Beautifully put. It works, it really does. I get excited every time I take a Newcomer through the Big Book and after 8 years, I still get a kick out of it. The Big Book contains the 12 steps, the Step 3,7 Prayers, the forgiveness prayer, how to pray and meditate in Step 11, an entire chapter on Working with Others, and a template for working out a half decent 4th. It says to do step 5 immediately and page 76 has steps 6, 7, and 8 all on one page, how wonderfully convenient for the teacher! There is no 12 step program other than the Big Book and those poor souls who get hurt or threatened by the Big Book need to be taken through the Big Book to take a look at that and get it on paper.

Since I found this sharing, I keep reading it for many reasons.

Those are my experiences, nowadays. I remembered him I only had my experience and what BB says, and shared. I surrendered to God every minute since it was a rough time for me to stay, listen, share my experience and BBs content at every question he had. Thank you so much for writing this and for this site in general. Any resource which reminds us of what the first did to recover from a seemingly hopeless state of mind and body is an exciting find for me and countless other real alcoholics around the world.

My name is Bruce. For years I have been taking people through the twelve steps and have stayed sober and happy. About 8 months ago I stopped. I was having a big life change and the program of AA became secondary, then non-existant.

As a result the inevidble happened. I am now back for 8 days. I have gone to Big Book meetings and step meetings. I will only go to meetings where the solution The 12 steps, and of course God is discussed. Love and may your God go with you Ian S.. Ok to a great extent you are right, and I was encouraged to reach out to new people on a regular basis, and it still works.

Step 7 is about being useful, and that means service, loving kindness to everyone, and humility to ask for help. I sponsor guys with the work in the Big Book. It went like that for years. As years go by and the Government, Medical Fraternities dedicated to science, Big Pharma, treatment centers, manipulate their legal loopholes it is not as simple as a new man showing up at a meeting willing to put the drink down and pursue the psychic change with his trusted Sponsor.

Many are fished out of society with bait used to catch the emotionally empty and self destructive, tasty mind soothing bait. Nevermind the many who believe the 12 Steps for the hopeless Alcoholic are in the 12 and 12 and easily applied when read thoroughly…Many are filled with facts and figures from the selfishness of Secular belief to prove the existence of a Spiritual realm ridiculous making AA secondary at best..

Their primary focus should be on medication, therapy, and methods of empowerment..
