Suffering from addiction? Are you a chronic relapser? Want a REAL solution, a way out?
Are you tired of Twelve Step meetings that spend too much time on drunk-a-logs or war-stories, discussions of problems, issues, and personal opinions, interpreting slogans and reading poetry?
Want the original, undiluted 12 step format that produced 75% recovery rates from alcoholism/addiction during the 1940's?
WE, who have recovered as a result of following the instructions for recovery in the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous through our own experience, have found that drunk-a-logs, telling war stories, discussing our personal problems or issues, celebrating medallions or sobriety birthdays, interpreting slogans or reading poetry WILL NOT keep chronic relapsing addicts of our type clean and sober.
The purpose of Big Book Sponsorship is to work the steps and teach others how to work the steps. We connect suffering addicts to recovered addicts who guide newcomers through a personalized one on one study of the original, undiluted 12 step program described in the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous. This is the same approach that produced 75% success rates in the 1940's. We substitute terms and phrases related to alcoholism to include ALL obsessive, compulsive patterns such as drinking alcohol, using drugs, gambling, sex, self-harm or injury, food, anorexia, bulimia, sugar, smoking, co-dependency etc., anyone can certainly increase this list and all are welcome.

"This seemed to prove that one alcoholic (addict) could affect another as no nonalcoholic could. It also indicated that strenuous work, one alcoholic (addict) with another, was vital to permanent recovery."Page xvii the book, Alcoholics Anonymous, 4th Edition
