Hello everyone. I generally hang out at the alcoholic newsgroup but there are so many AA skeptics there that I feel much better posting this here. I recently acquired a virtual sponsee (don't worry she has one offline as well). I started our relationship the same way my sponsor started with me - a long conversation to make sure we were well-suited for each other followed by an exchange of life histories centered on how drinking had progressed and how it had affected our lives. Now we're ready for step one. As I recall, my sponsor asked me to write out the ways in which my life was unmanageable and then we discussed it. Does anyone else have any other suggestions that might make the step more meaningful? I'd like to hear of any different approaches. I will probably speak with my sponsee later this morning.
