A sponsor is someone who knows all about you and still wants to help you.
Sponsors provide guidance and much-needed support as we experience withdrawal, work the 12 steps of sexual recovery, and deal with being triggered toward addictive sexual behaviors. As a sponsee, our job is to be honest, open-minded, and willing to both ask for and accept advice from our sponsor. Any time we feel triggered to act out, we should contact our sponsor. Sometimes the mere act of picking up the phone to ask for help alleviates the desire to act out.
Just for Today:
If you don’t yet have a 12 step sexual recovery sponsor, get one.
