thanks for the article, very helpful. the book tells me to look at my own mistakes, small point but for me a big difference, my part implies that you have a part as well. i am starting to exercise the discipline of responsibility, i invariably find that i am the creator of all my .

peace,
Mike

Just did a 5th step with my sponsor and pretty much went by Mr. sponsorpants and recommended the 7th step prayer

I think that I will use this bit of information to go and hear my first 5th step of a sponsee! Sounds good, and don't forget 6 and 7.

I wonder who's more nervous, my sponsee ormyself, who hasn't had a sponsee in 20 years! Wait- he is, no doubt, lol. I came out of my sponsor's house 26 years ago with an 8th step list . . . .

thank you for taking the time to write this. about to hear my first 5th step, and while i have worked the step and spoken w my sponsor, nice to have another opinion/take on the process, outside of my immediate fellowship group. bravo!

laurie

thank u mr. sponsor pants for explaining this to me i was left hanging on my 4th step and now im going home to rewrite them.the things that stopped me from progressing and what i have done to stop others from progressing.

After years with no sponsees, I now find myself with two new people, and I want to thank you for posting this! Very thoughtful, very useful! Thanks so much!

Rolley Hurley

Thank you so much for the effort of making this available on the net! I pretty much understood what to do,which is be a listener. The helpful directions we can give to the 5th stepper was very helpful, this will be my 1st time to witness a 5th step, and I feel very privelaged that someone would take me into their confidence on such a delicate matter. God bless you and hope everyone keeps trudging the road to Happy destiny!

lorraine

more grateful than i can say
have had the privilege of being asked again to do a fifth and as it's been 10 years, glad to have this guidance
loved your book - same sick sense of humour as me
