12 Step Fellowships began with sponsorship. When Bill W., only a few months sober, was stricken with a powerful urge to drink, this thought came to him: “You need another alcoholic to talk to. You need another alcoholic just as much as he needs you!” He found Dr. Bob, who had been trying desperately and unsuccessfully to stop drinking, and out of their common need, a fellowship was born. The word “sponsor” was not used then – the 12 Steps had not yet been written – but Bill carried the message to Dr. Bob, who in turn safeguarded his own sobriety by sponsoring countless others. Through sharing, both of our co-founders discovered, their own sober lives could be enriched beyond measure. This discussion will include many facets of what sponsorship means, what a sponsor does, and the history of the 12 Steps.
