Default Finding a sponsor

Hey friends! I hope everybody is having a blessed hump day. This post relates less to any relation of Suboxone and the steps, and more just to the fellowships. particularly, Nrcotics Anonymous. I have been clean and in Suboxone for 11 months as of tomorrow, and attending NA the entire time. I was in and out of the rooms the few years before, but now I'm back, and luckily some people I remember are still clean, which is always beautiful. I am going in eleven months though and I still do not have a sponsor. I have been wanting to lately, but I am moving about an hour away soon and have only been making it to a coupe meetings a week due to school and other life things. The move kind of makes me want to get a sponsor here in a way, because I am moving what will be about 2 weeks before my year, which I have gotten here in this one area. I don't know if it would be weird to ask someone to sponsor me when I am moving soon after. I have a couple people in mind. I have heard of some people having sponsors in other areas. I that weird to you guys? Or should I maybe just stop making excuses and ask someone, if there is someone I want to ask, before I move to a whole new area? There was more I wanted to touch on, but it's left my mind for now, or it's hiding damn well, so I will leave it at that for now. Thanks as always folks!

A warm welcome Chazwick.

Ang CONGRATULATIONS FOR 11 MONTHS CLEAN !!!

I do not have the ability to type much today as I am having trouble writing due my medication effects today but; In my opinion take yor time finding a sponsor who you feel comfortable with. See how you feel about a person.

May I ask what drugs (including alcohol which is a drug, you were using and what type of other help you got such as friends/family/ counsellors etc.

Best Wishes

Leo

Thanks! And everything, really. Heroin and weed were the top, but I didn't discriminate, no more than my disease does. As an example, a common one at that, I hated the taste of alcohol, and to an extent the feeling as well, but that didnt stop me from drinking until I couldn't drink anymore, as long as it was around. It didnt even have to be the only option, i could have my DOC and still go for that, anything to not be sober. So, opiates were my preference, but I subscribed to it all. I have a great family, immediate and extended who are supportive. The ones who don't understand it try their best and usually learn a thing or two, so it's not bad, and the only friends outside of a few cousins who I consider best friends, are people of NA. But I don't talk to them much out of meetings. I'm trying to force myself too. I have always been awkward about calling people. I always feel like I shouldn't, like I'm bothering maybe, even my closest friends, even when I was using. Thank god for remission but I still have work to d, that's for sure. Thank you for your response! This part of the board doesn't seem to see much action the past few months.
