Sponsor shopping

After an exhausting trip down every aisle, a newcomer finds the right guy

I remember when I hadn’t had a drink for a whole week. Wow, that was quite an accomplishment for someone who for 25 years only drank on days ending with the letter Y. And all I kept hearing at every AA meeting was, “Get a sponsor!” Every time someone shared, they mentioned this sponsor thing. I couldn’t stand it anymore. Enough already! I figured I had better do what they said, just to get people off my back.
