Recovery and Social Media

[Sponsored] Mysponsers is a social media site that allows me to connect with others in recovery for advice and friendship without judgment.

Recovery & Social Media

Our group has but one primary purpose — to carry the message to the addict who still suffers. 

We stumble through this as newcomers nervously reading in front of a group of people when called to read the traditions, or we might breeze through it for the millionth time as seasoned attendees without letting it settle in our minds.

The addict who still suffers, we've been there. Terrified to death to find a meeting and admit the problem we have yet to grasp ourselves to a bunch of strangers. 

When I first heard of Mysponsers, I didn't know how to feel about it. 

Is this merely another social media site to consume more of my time? But, then it hit me, it is a social media site to occupy my idle hands. One committed to making sure I stay connected with the people that want what's best for me and understand the good, the bad, and the downright evil that is addiction. 

Having time clean and wanting to share the message to the addict who still suffers is now literally in my hands everywhere I go. 

We make time for recovery, it's a must to be able to maintain our sanity. Now, if I'm at work, or in class, and I have a burning desire and leaving to find a meeting is not an option, or my sponsee needs advice when I'm unable to drop what I'm doing to meet him, we now have a place to turn to right then and there for advice, or to connect with a friend in recovery to meet for coffee.

Mysponsers is an easy and convenient way to connect with people who get it. 

It's also a wonderful place for recovering addicts to celebrate their recovery without judgment. Again I say, WITHOUT JUDGMENT.

This is a safe place to express your truths and your hurts, habits, and hang-ups with peers. 

I thank my higher power for Mysponsers. Staying connected one day @ a time.
