1. A good sponsor isn't all that interested in the "reasons" you used.
2. A therapist thinks your root problem is your lack of self-esteem, negative self-image, and your poor self-concept. A good sponsor thinks your problem is a 3-letter word with no hyphens: YOU
3. A therapist wants you to pamper your "inner child". A good sponsor thinks it ought to be spanked.
4. A good sponsor thinks your inventory should be about you, not your parents.
5. Speaking of your parents, a good sponsor tells you not to confront them, but to make amends to them.
6. The only time a good sponsor uses the word "closure" is before the word "mouth ".
7. A good sponsor thinks "boundaries" are things you need to take down, not build up.
8. A therapist wants you to love yourself first. A good sponsor wants you to love others first. In this case the therapist is correct & the sponsor is incorrect.
9. A therapist prescribes caretaking and medication. A good sponsor prescribes prayer-making and meditation.
10. A good sponsor thinks "anger management skills" are numbered 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, and 12.
11. Now that you haven't used in 6 months, a therapist thinks you should make a list of your goals and objectives for the next 5 years, starting with finishing up that college degree. A good sponsor thinks you should start today by setting up the meeting and making coffee, helping him carry a heavy box of literature to the jail, and making your bed.
12. A sponsor won't lose his license to practice if he talks about God.

    i can even tell you where you can get your own. you seem like a real dipshit. i got kids older than you. if you feel this is a healthy way to recover then more power to you. i would offer some recovery suggestions to you but seeing’s how you were 13 when i got clean you would not have the mental capacity to understand them anyway. is polby short for poolboy? just wandering with your intelligence level i would figure that would be about your speed. don’t piss me off because i’ll kick you in your ass so hard you’ll be wearing it for a freaking hat. now Junior go bug somebody who cares.
