I met with my very first sponsee last night. She has some serious personal issues that I know will challenge her sobriety. She has only been sober for three days. I felt honored that our district chairperson directed her to me and really excited about the opportunity to help another person. By the same token I also felt like a hypocrite. I had a recent slip with some pain pills (details are in my journal). As I said in my journal this incident is a big reminder for me that I am *not* cured - I have only a daily reprieve contingent on the maintenance of my spiritual condition. Perhaps this will make me more able to help my sponsee by reminding me that I am no different than her. I am an alcoholic and an addict who is sober only by the grace of my higher power. I would be interested to hear others opinions of the situation. Just for the record its not necessary to castigate me. I feel absolutely horrible about what I did. I do, however, welcome constructive criticism and honest opinions.
