Many of us have, at times, felt like a child impersonating an adult, of feeling “little” in a grown up body, of over-rea ...Continue Reading

February 15th 2019 PDT

13TH STEPPING A member reported: “I watched a member of the opposite sex repeatedly use recovery to flirt with newcomers.

Giving feedback as sponsors, we can develop skills to be honest without advising, lecturing, or being verbally abusive. Sponsorship is a tool of recovery that helps the process of heali ...Continue Reading
