I would really like to get some advice/input about how a sponsor relationship typically works with a sponsee. I am newly sober (54 days) and I made sure to get a sponsor right away unlike my last attempt with AA. I’ve had her since I was 1 week sober and we’ve only met 2 times. The initial meeting and another about 3 weeks ago. I’m on Step 1 still even though I told her I’m ready to go to step 2. And everytime I ask her about moving forward, she just keeps saying that I really need to be ready. I am!
Here’s what I expected- that we would be at least meeting once a week and I would be checking in with her daily and her contacting me as well. I thought that she would be giving me assignments to work through my steps.
It just seems like she’s not giving me much education which I expected to get. I am truly lost. This is all very new to me! My sponsor never told me how this whole thing really works and I didn’t realize I was supposed to be contacting her mostly. So I started to almost every day if not every day and sometimes she doesn’t respond back until the very end of the day or next. Just feeling a little discouraged about this. I truly want to work on my sobriety and I’m more of the type to want to get things rolling and actually do some work but this is stressing me out so much. I just feel like I’m getting nowhere. Thanks for listening and for any advice you may have.
