Things My Sponsor Said offers a window into the intimate world of the AA sponsor/sponsee relationship, focusing on the recovery of Buzz H. and the insight, experience, and support from his sponsor, Marvin, that helped him meet the challenges of a life of sobriety.
Marvin shared his insights and offered instigation to help his sponsee integrate the program into the fabric of his life. Yet Things My Sponsor Said is also about the friendship and mentorship that occurs between recovering adults. Marvin was Buzz's sponsor, but in the sharing, an enduring relationship of respect and affection developed.
It is the author's fondest wish that this book provides you with a share of the experience, strength, and hope Marvin offered Buzz. It is also hoped the book provides you with a smile, a laugh, and maybe a tear.
