I was concerned about two articles on sponsorship in the December 2004 Grapevine: "Garden Variety Sobriety" describes a sponsor having a sponsee doing gardening work for him. "The Helpful Boomerang" describes a sponsor asking the sponsee to do a free website for him.

I don't want to be a wet blanket, but I do believe it's important (for me at least) to warn people about how sponsorship can be misused. In early sobriety, my sponsor had me working on his computer, instead of helping me work the Steps or the program.
