Sponsors are recovered compulsive overeaters who are living the Twelve Steps to the best of their ability and passing on the message of recovery to those who still suffer.
Do you have a sponsor? Is your sponsor abstinent? Does your sponsor work all the Steps? Sponsors can be found by attending OA meetings face-to-face, by phone & online. There are many recovered fellows in OA that may not have the time to individually sponsor you but would be willing to answer your questions and provide guidance along your Step journey. I like to call these helpers “spiritual mentors” or “partners in recovery”.
